SS Challenge week 13

Happy Wednesday everyone! It was a little too nice to be blogging on Monday. And Tuesday... did we even have a Tuesday this week?

Anyway, for last weeks' challenge I wanted to make something special. Instead just making a layout I decided to do a minibook. I had this idea in my mind for a while, and the challenge seemed to be a perfect fit. I knew it would take a little more time to complete, but I was optimistic about it and really thought I might get it done in a week. Well, it didn't happen. I will continue to work on it and share it as soon as I get it done. But I did scraplift a page to share at least something. So, here is my unrelated project:

I used to make monochromatic pages all the time. I was afraid to mix more than two colors together. Some artists are just so good at mixing a lot of colors on a page that still looks good together. Jennifer Gallacher is one of them. So, I just scraplifted her page, repeating colors she had on her layout.

Had a few comments about images being too small, which made it hard to read. I will try to upload images in larger size from now on, unless journaling will be a little more personal.

I have Lora's layout to share with you today. There's just so much I like about her page! Great design, perfect color choice, which gives this page a little vintage look and heartwarming journaling. I like that she included pictures of her parents from different times. But my favorite is hearts stiched right in the middle - which are a perfect embellishment for the theme.

Our challenge for Week 14 was to make a page using one of the journaling spots on a page. Simple enough. I am anxiously waiting for this week's pages! Katya will be choosing challenge for week 16!

See you very soon!
