I made another page for Monica's book. For those who don't know, Monica is my best friend's daughter, and she recently lost her 23-year-old husband to bone cancer (he was diagnosed at 17). I'm grabbing pictures off of their Facebook pages and making her an album to remember all the sweet, happy memories they shared in their short but beautiful 6-year-marriage.
I used Nadia's current sketch at Once Upon a Time as inspiration for my page design.
I know people say this all the time, but my page really does look better in real life. I used old Wild Asparagus papers, which I believe is the first collection My Mind's Eye ever made. I added some Echo Park bits because they're sponsoring us this month.
Clues I used: Evidence: Distressing, metal, the four patterns (stripes, dots, gingham, floral), and brads; Testimony: Distressed frame
Here are a few details: Here you can see some of the Echo Park bits tucked in. The blue frame is in this week's CSI Coordinates, which you can find at the bottom of the Case File thread.
I add these little banners and camera at the top at the last minute. The cameras are from Echo Park.
I've had these polka dot flowers in my stash forever. The journaling came from the caption to the photo on Monica's facebook page. James and Monica started out as friends in high school. The penguin reference in her journaling refers to the fact that they always called each other their penguins because penguins apparently mate for life.
Go check out what the rest of the team made. This is your last Case File to solve for a chance to win an Echo Park collection kit of your choice, so if you haven't had time to play yet in July, this is the week!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page.
