{Life is a journey...}

It took this photo of my daughter just after she started working as a Occupational Therapist in a private practice.  The suitcases I bought at one of our local markets in Pretoria, South-Africa. My journalling is on a tag tucked in behind the photo and reads as follows : "I have been so happy for her yet as I write this, I am sad. I suppose for the milestones she is reaching in her adult journey, but too, of the sadness of a childhood past, an adulthood ahead. I realize this year has been one of great growth for her. She truly has grown into herself. Stunning to witness it. I so much appreciate her inviting me into her life during this amazing journey, to witness, reflect, and narrate with her the meaning of events. I am grateful for the front row seat she has reserved for me to remain a key witness, and often playing a big role in the unfolding events in her life. The world now sees her as a young woman with her charm and her smile and own personality. But behind that young woman I will always see my beautiful daughter, my child, my baby. She is so terribly blessed but it is her heart of gold that I love the most."

{Summer shoot...}

This is my first layout for a CSI challenge and I can really say that I enjoyed it so much. Lovely sketch and wonderful scheme and options. I rotated the sketch. My journalling is on a tag tucked in behind the photo, and it is about our yearly summer photoshoot at our favourite location.
Evidence : flowers, buttons and texture paste.
Testimony : Using the word Summer in my title and my journalling.
Here was the challenge...

{Far away from the city...}


This is my take on Sketch No 6 over at Scrap & Music. The challenge required the use of the song BABY I LOVE YOUR WAYE by PETER FRAMPTON and the wonderful sketch by Ana Castro. I used the phrase “Far away from the city.”  This is a photo of my  daughter  during our vacation in Sodwanna Bay. Once again I did background stamping, stenciling with gesso and washi tape and lots of glimmer mist.  Thank you for looking.

{She..}

This is my take on Sketch No 5 over at Scrap & Music.  The challenge required the use of the song SHE by Elvis Costella from the movie Notting Hill with the stunning Julie Roberts and the given sketch which I roted.  This is a photo of my gorgeous daughter with our last winter photoshoot. I did lots of background stamping, stenciling with gesso and washi tape.  The roses I made myself.  Thank you for looking.

I want to grow old with you...


This is my take on the July sketch over at OUAS.  The journaling theme was “GROW”. This is a photo of my husband and I, this year is our 30th anniversary, and this is the man I want to grow old with (we are halfway I guess) This is the first time I scrapped myself…because I am always the one behind the camera LOL! My journaling is on a tag tucked in behind the photo. This is the Sketch…
