Pixie Dust Paperie Challenge

Hi there ... invigorated by my previous challenge ... I created a Layout for the Pixie Dust Paperie challenge .... set by Chief Pixie ... Kirsty ... who did this  amazing sketch ...


I have to say that this is a first for me ... I've never done a LO for a challenge ... nor ever followed a sketch for a LO  ... and actually I found it easier than I first thought ... 


This is one of my favourite pictures ... taken in Cornwall when Mikey was about 12 or 13 ...
The three of us were inseparable ...


How I wish I could re-live days like that ...


How we miss our beautiful Kelly ...
But just making this took me right back to that moment ... How time flies

Till soon

Such a wonderful page, Ros! that button looks like a shell right out of the ocean! Such wonderful colors as well!

My heart just tears when I read your post, I can feel the love of a mom, and I could almost imagine those days.... where you have Mikey and Kelly by your side, you know I have similar experience. *sigh.....
Anyway, back to your beautiful layout, besides the precious picture that goes perfectly with your choice of DP, the journaling note, bloom and swirl are all great elements for a beautiful layout like yours! Thanks for playing along with Pixie!
