I Wish...

Even though the colors at CSI were bright and happy, I have been feeling weighted down.  There has been a lot going on in my life right now and I am also sick, so I am more contemplative than most times.  When one of the journaling options was to use the I Wish prompt, I went with wanting to just get away and be with the love of my life.  It says, "I Wish...I could go away with you.  Far, far away where it is warm, with a gentle breeze blowing in my hair.  A place where we can leave our troubles and problems behind.  I wish we could just be together without any extra stress or distractions.  Where I can just look into your eyes, hold your hand, and spend the day talking and enjoying your company"

For my evidence I used: dots, banners, scallops, transparent tape

The layout:

The case file

This is wonderful...I am sorry to hear of your struggles lately and I know exactly how you feel- just wanting to get away sometimes! I really love what you've done to create the film strip here- awesome use of mixed media and the washi tape is a great touch~!!
