On Her Birthday... TCR Palette Six

I scrapped this page on her birthday. No matter how old she gets and how many birthdays will pass, I will always be extra introspective on her birthday. Though it did not snow the day she was born, but Faye Wong's song describes just how I felt ...  你带著一身明媚,离开我温暖的堡垒.  你带著一身光辉,照亮我心底的漆黑.

I really loved this palette, I felt extra inspired pulling my papers together for this layout.  I stamped a border around my picture and underlined my journaling with a line stamp (flower stem) from myStamp Box. Yes, I'm feeling slightly clever :)
Be sure to stop by the Color Room and check out the other jaw dropping layouts by the design team and the Color Room members!  Remember SRM Stickers is the sponsor this month!!! So if you upload a project (layout, card, altered, whatever) based on one of the palettes in May, you will be eligible to win a package of SRM Stickers goodies!!! 

Lastly, thank you for visiting, really, I mean it. Thank you so much!

Tout d'abord: bravo pour WIP! Elles ont bien de la chance de t'avoir! Cette page est magnifique avec tous ces beaux papillons qui créent du mouvement! Wow! et puis j'aime beaucoup voir ces différentes écritures sur une page mais dis-moi...j'ai une question...quand aurons-nous le plaisir de voir un journaling en français sur une de tes pages? Ce sera mon petit défi pour toi ( as if you needed another one right?! )

Passe une bonne fin de semaine <3
