I made another page for Monica's book. If you know Monica's story, skip ahead. If not, read on. Monica is my best friend's daughter. Her 23-year-old husband just died in July after a 6 year battle with bone cancer. Monica and James have thousands of photos on their Facebook pages, and I've been grabbing them from there to make Monica a book so she'll remember the many happy memories in their short life together.
Here's the page I made with this Case File. Clues I used: Evidence: Sun, heart, wood, photo corners, flowers, fruit; Testimony: I used a summer photo that Monica can use to document a summer, and a the phrase sticker I chose was inspired by the Inspiration Word happy.
Here are some details. Most of the stuff I used on here is pretty old, with the exception of the Martha Stewart doily. That mesh, which is the color of the beige in the palette, is ancient.Look at poor Jame's sunburn!
I made a sun out of the a lime cut from an old K&Co. paper. I was inspired to add stitched sun rays by my friend Tracee, who recently sewed rays on a sun she made.
The teal and green paper are old SEI papers that I thought were perfect for this Case File. The little tropical looking flower is by Prima, and the photo corner is by Heidi Swapp--really old stuff.
I didn't have very many tropical-looking flowers, so I used some yellow silk flowers. The metal-rimmed words are by K&Co.
I have so many interesting and wonderful textured papers from back when they were popular, and recently, I've been trying to add them to my pages. The yellow paper you see here has raised gold dots. I always love a chance to use my Fiskars wave border punch, and the yellow scalloped border is Doodlebug Frills. Remember those?
Not sure how that blue thread snuck in there, but it's not part of the layout. I just wanted to show my wooden heart button.
Gorgeous summery stuff to be seen in our reveal by the design team and guest designers. I hope you'll come play with us!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
