Sister - Dusty Attic

Lately I have been scrapping away, and getting my layout about 75% done... and then wandered off to start another, I'm not sure why I've not been able to stay on task, it's most certainly not like me!  Usually it feels all kind of wrong to start another layout before I've finished the one I'm working on.

Anyway, this week I have finished them all... I am satisfied, and even though it was odd for me to have 5 {yes 5} layouts on the go at once, I loved it!  I have really enjoyed the different creative process, some of them have taken me 3 days just to get to the 75%, but not from procrastinating... just from enjoying adding a bit and then going off to do something else {usually watch TV with the boys}... so I am feeling fulfilled!

Here is one of them... my sister, beautiful creature that she is.  This pic is a year old, I really need to get a new one of her.   She's going through one of the hardest things anyone has to go through right now, but she's holding up, she's strong... and we're all there for her.  I just wanted to scrap this happy moment again, eyes glazed with happiness after a shopping spree... I hope to see that happiness again one day.  Love this girl with all my heart...

I have used the cute new Dusty Attic Birdcage, Mini Heart Buttons and Bookman ABC Set.   How CUTE are those heart buttons.  Hearts aren't really my thing, but these are super cute!  I've also scattered some new Dusty in Bloom flowers and leaves everywhere... they are beautiful and worked so well with these soft papers!

I used one of my sketches for this one - Sketch 16 - the sketch felt so busy and full of layers, but the layout turned out so gentle and soft, love how that happens!
