Memories of you

Hi All, I was out reading all the newly updated blog and I stumbles upon Heather Jacobs blog Art and Life she had just updates with the most beautiful layouts for CSI (Color... Stories...inspiration..) It looked interesting so I had to go check it out! then I decided to join in the fun.....they have a whole color scheme and elements that you have to use...Oh this is right up my alley...lol I also Linked up with Paper issues as a just because project.

this is case #52
the colors are excellent.....I left and kept reading blogs while I thought about what I wanted to do and what I had available... then Lets Get Sketchy came out with their challenge...challenge this week is called "Not So Picture Perfect" I thought this is perfect since most of my pictures are pretty bad...well most were taken with a phone or while Stephanie was out with friends...so this was perfect...I would do both of the challenges!

Here is what I came up with after hours of messing around....remember I'm still new at this but any comments or suggestions are welcome! I used this picture because its one of my favorites because of her beautiful smile...its a bit fuzzy and a lil blurry But I love it!

One of the requirement was to Document a gift (literal or figurative). well as I looked around my house I have so many little gifts that have been given to me over the years by my girls....But since this page is going into Stephanie's Memory album I figured I would just go with the little things shes given me...Now mind you these things are with in sight and some are the last things she ever gave me....#1 is the gingerbread man she made me in 2008 It actually is hanging in my front window,I don't think he's ever been put away! #2 the book that she said I just had to read and the bookmark to go with it...she gave me that for my birthday this past summer. #3 is a Fairy resin container which I love,it sits right on my desk But the best gift she has ever given me was her LOVE.....I have all of these small reminders of how generous and thoughtful and loving she was!
 some cute little tags that Karen over at CSI made up just for this case Michele Singh
 Love my hideaway tags...this one is kind of personal so I left it tucked in..


this little tag explains the gifts...this one was really hard because there were so many memories and I miss her very much...Its been so hard ...first it was her Birthday she would have been 14 ,then there was Thanksgiving and Christmas...It's only been 3 months but it feels like a lifetime I thought I was dealing well with everything but today has been very trying...But also very therapeutic and that was the whole point!

So Like I said in the beginning this is going up over at CSI and Lets Get Sketchy! 
and Paper issues

Thanks for taking a peek!

  5. Great job with both challenges Buffy! I really like C.S.I., but I get very intimidated with color challenges for some reason, so I don't do them very often. You did an awesome job with the colors and bits. Love the layers and clusters. Great photo! Thanks so much for joining in with us too at Let's Get Sketchy! Happy New Year!
