Prima Color Challenge with a Swirly Twist

I used the color palate for the November Prima collection, but then used two of the challenges from Swirlydoo's and a sketch from Sketches in Thyme to make this LO of my daughter's angel. 

I used the new angel we got in our backyard. My daughter died at the age of 4 months, so since then for her birthday we have gotten something to remember her by. This year (her birthday is Oct 30) for her would be 2nd birthday we got this little angel and placed it under her tree we got and planted when she died. I did not journal any of this, as sometimes it is just nice to see a pleasant LO rather than dwell.

I stuck with fall colors as it is autumn and her birthday is Oct 30.

DT Sketch for sketches4all

On Sketches4all we have many challenges and contests going on.  One is for a sketch, and as a Design team member, my take on the sketch is below.  For more information or to join the contest, please follow the link Sketches4all

Entry for My Creative Scrapbook 3 Month Contest and Sketches In Thyme Sketch

I did some new techniques for this contest.  I used dollar store silk flowers and used them as a mask to create the white flower spaces on the page.  I then used the same spray mist and sprayed the silk flower to match the LO (they were white to begin with).  For the large flower I used a vintage button to pull the flower to make it smaller (it was too big).

The pic is of my mother and her family when she was a little girl (she is about 6).  Enjoy.
