You are my Hero - CSI110

Hello there.  This weeks Color Story Inspiration case file is an unusual colour combination and one I don't normally work with.  But that is probably why it is called a I took up the challenge and decided to scrap some photos that was taken last year in February in Baviaans Kloof.  Here is my page:

 Supplies used:  Cardstock:  American Craft; Patterned papers: Basic Grey Serenade; Circles and title:  Silhouette Cameo; Jewels: Prima; Other: Gelatos, yellow acrylic paint, Crafters Workshop stencil and embossing paste, feather, burlap.

Here is the case file and the sketch by Em Stafrace:

This is how I solved the case file:

The Scheme: I used all the colours.

Evidence: Feather, you will find the fringes of the burlap below the photos, pearls, solid background and jewels.

Testimony: I thought I would go with the 3 interesting things about the subject matter...but it became more than three. So here goes. My title is "You are my Hero"...and the journaling is as follows: Wynand invited his father to go camping in Baviaans Kloof, a nature reserve in our area.  Baviaans Kloof is also Wynand's favourite camping destination. On Facebook Wynand's status read: "Wat 'n great tyd saam met my held!!!" (What a great time with my hero). I love the relationship that my sons and their father share.

On Saturday night we had a BALL ;-)  The Valentines Ball was held at the Summerstrand Hotel and all the food was sponsored by our biggest supporters.  The hall was beautiful, the food magnificent, the sponsored prizes BIG.  We had a lovely evening and it was a wonderful fundraiser.

#149 ~ A Valentines Ball sponsored by two of our biggest supports...W**lies and Summerstrand Hotel.

#150 ~ The love of my life for the past nearly 35 sweet Valentine for everyday.

#151 ~ Dancing the night away in my DH's arms.

#152 ~ In the heat wave we are having I can never be thankful enough for cool dips in our pool.

#153 ~ Watching a rerun of an old movie "Pay it Forward.

#154 ~ Knowing the outcome of the movie and still sobbing when the hero dies.

#155 ~ When you are radically grateful for what you have, you will go to radical lengths to share it. When you are radically grateful for being blessed — you are radically generous to the oppressed. When you are radically grateful, you live out of a place of radical abundance — there’s always more space for more to share the grace. -Ann Voskamp

#156 ~ Waking up next to this sweet little face.
