Life's lessons

Life's lessons can be lighthearted and fun, and sometimes they can be sad and lonely. My beautiful, beautiful niece CJ recently experienced the heartache of leaving someone she had loved, created a home and planned a future with. Her courage, strength, and outlook on what was happening inspired me to create the following layout ..

Love & other bruises
published in Scrapbooking Memories Vol. 15 No. 3

I used ScrapChat's April challenge for my inspiration when creating this layout. Our projects had to incorporate the following criteria ..

Colours - yellow and grey
Design requirement - Houndstooth pattern
Something extra - "Life's lessons" .. interpret this however you wish
Lifelines - white, black, cream, kraft

The journaling on the layout are CJ's words .. thank you for sharing this with me sweetheart.  :) xx
