Color Stories Inspiration - 365 #6

Hi Everyone,

I have special Case File No. 6 challenge from Color Stories Inspiration, which is a collaboration with Scrap365  UK's biggest and best scrapbooking magazine to share with you.

This special Case File will be open for investigation for the entire month of June. We will have a new Scrap365 Case File every other month, with the publication of a new issue of the magazine. After this Case File closes, we will be selecting our five favorite layouts to feature, and those people will be invited as CSI Deputies (guest designers) for August.

The Next Chapter In Our Lives
As soon as I saw the lovely colour palette on this case file, I thought of my daughter Brittany at her close friends Jai and Laura's Year 12 Formal, which was the inspiration for my Testimony (write a 6-word memoir)  -  "The Next Chapter in our Lives" .

I know your children can't stay your babies forever, but seeing them all grown up really pulls on the heartstrings.  Once they have finished school, you know it is only a matter of time before they leave the nest and find their own way through life, and I don't know if I'll ever be ready to let them go.

ribbons/bows - jute bow on hidden journaling tag
frames - frame made with berry spray
texture paste - stencilled script design
labels - journal spot
Write a 6-word memoir - I have used the words "The Next Chapter in Our Lives"  which sums up Brittany and her friends ending of their school life and the beginning of their lives as adults.

Product Used:  Bo Bunny, LYB, Prima and Pion Designs pp, Kaisercraft collectables, Silhouette wreath diecut, Prima flowers, gesso, texture paste, Luminarte pigment powder-fuzzy peach, Crafters Workshop script stencil, Glimmermist-sapphire, The Trinket Track catseye heart cabochon and pearl embellishments, tag, jute twine, berry spray,  Websters and Authentique alpha stickers

Thanks so much for stopping by.
