Lest we Forget

I am submitting my layout for the following challenges:

* Jot Magazine - August mood board.

I used the black/white/grey/red colour palette.  I took inspiration from the layered white flowers and red butterfly, using those elements in my page. (The original flower was a bit too big for my page, so I removed the bottom layer of petals.)

* Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - Use a souvenir from a place or event.  I included the order of service from the ANZAC Day dawn service, tucked in a pocket behind the photographs:

I created the pocket by machine stitching on three sides of the patterned paper, leaving it open at the top. I secured the booklet with a paper clip, which also makes it a little more obvious that there is something to remove.

* Unstampabelles - Anything but a card.  

Bazzill Basics Smoothies - Blackberry Swirl cardstock
Becky Higgins Project Life - Jade Collection patterned paper
Red paper clip
Wooden butterfly buttons
Green Tara Damask - Ivory organza flower
October Afternoon Mini Market - Gray & Cream alphabet stickers
Beaded stick pins (from a RAK)

Thank you for visiting my blog!


  1. Beautiful layout and a moving memory for you. Love the black and white a pop of red.....so poignant. Thank you for sharing you wonderful creation with us at Unstampabelles. Wynn DT

  2. Stunning - the scrapping of our daily lives is something I really want to do and somehow never find the time. Such a great memory of a moment. That memorial looks like the one at our Anzac park in Lindisfarne and I immediately went straight there in my memories too. Thanks for sharing this with us at Unstampabelles.

  3. A lovely page and what a great memory. I especially love those red butterflies and how they just pop off the page!
