I knew what I wanted to do but was unsure about being ready to do it - today I decided it was a case of "pulling up my big girl panties" and getting on with things.
Whilst in France with my dad, a very beautiful bouquet arrived from friends of theirs from their time in Ras Al Khaimah (near Abu Dhabi) I confess that I acquired the cellophane that was around this lovely bouquet of cream roses & mauve freesias as I thought I might be able to put it to good use.
I have used the cellophane as the background page and the small flowers have been coloured with an ivory Promarker - I've added small mauve pearl for the centres. The photo is one of my favourites of mum, my father took it many many moons ago when we lived in Libya so mum would have been in her mid 30s at the time.
One of the girls taking part in the Documented life project has created a download of hearts on a book page and these seemed perfect for me to use for the GRATITUDE title.
