Here is the final combined OUAS and CSI challenge for September and above is my take :)
The colours are so beautiful and fresh and the sketch is perfect for highlighting that special photo. I had a lot of fun creating my background for this one. My 7 year old daughter was wanting to have a go at 'bubble painting' so whilst she was happily blowing coloured bubbles I decided to make a few pages for myself. (Incase you have never done bubble painting all it entails is adding a little washing up liquid to coloured water - food colouring produces a great strong colour, and blowing through a straw to create coloured bubbles. The you gently place your cardstock or paper on top of the bubbles to make a 'print'). I added some detail to my background using paint daubers and stencils. My papers are Amy Tangerine, October Afternoon and a little Kaisercraft.
The evidence items that I included are the wooden bird and the 'little bits and pieces'. I loved the quote in the testimony list so i used that to start my journaling which reads :
All I really need to know I learned when i became a mother.
One of the greatest lessons that I learned is to cherish every aspect of my child's existance and so every night I take the time to sit for a while and to simply watch you sleep.
Hope you are having a great week - here it is the first day of the school holidays so my scrapping time will be severely limited over the next two weeks :)))
