Remember this...

This is my DT reveal for Lasting Memories this week.  Our theme is Remembrance, and the challenge is to create a layout to remember someone special.   This can be anyone special in your life;  it doesn't have to relate to Remembrance Day (11th November).

My layout is based on sketch #107 at Feeling Sketchy, and the photographs were taken for my Mum's 70th birthday celebrations:


I received some new goodies from a shopping spree at Scrap Boutique last week, and I tried out a new stencil.  I used texture paste to create the background, and I added some mists for colour.  (The blue is very pretty and shimmery, but doesn't photograph very well.)  I'm entering my layout for the mixed media challenge over at The Studio Challenges:

Bazzill Basics cardstock
TCW Balzer Designs - Mini Art Deco Leaves 6x6 stencil
Tattered Angels GlimmerMist - Denim Blue 
Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst - Time Travel Teal mist
Words or Whatever Circle - Today wood veneer
American Crafts Thickers - Rainboots glitter letters
Petaloo Botanica Minis - Teal flowers
Portacraft Floral Stack felt flowers
