Hello crafty friends and as always welcome to my blog. My page I have created to show you today is for the challenge over at Scrapbookit. The challenge was "Things With Wings". As soon as I looked at the challenge for this month I knew just what I wanted to do, I got the camera out and snapped this photo I have used.
I have many bird photos I could have used but I couldn't get this statue out of my mind. I knew I had to do it and my head kept saying find those Pion Design papers, I'm sure they have doves on them.
Found and they did - perfect.
This statue is so special to me. I received many things of special value when my mum passed away. Cards, messages, tress, shrubs, flowers and this statue. It holds a special beauty that warms my heart the same as my tree and shrub as I watch them grow.
This is what I was going to write on the page but as I created I decided to write my mum a little letter.
If only I could send a letter to heaven Mum,
I would send it filled with love
on the wings of a dove.
Patterned papers - Pion Design - Paris Flea Market
Word Chippie - Scrapmatts
Flowers - Petaloo
Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
As you can see by the list above I have not used a lot of products, this is due to the fact that I used the papers by fussy cutting. I have fussy cut the outside boarder and placed it on the beautiful blue patterned paper. I love this blue as it reminded me of mums eyes. Her eyes are so blue, so beautiful.
Thank you so much for stopping in and having a look at my page. I hope I have been able to inspire you just a little that if you don't fussy cut to have a go. It's a great way to utilize beautiful papers such as these. Happy crafting. xxx
"I know you have always loved my work mum and I hope you love this page too. Missing you every single day. I so wish a dove could take my letter to you or that heaven had visiting hours. The boys and I have an empty place in our hearts that only you could fill. Our lives will never be the same without you. We love you mum."
