14 - Looking to the Future

Here is my fifth case ... I leave for a week's holiday in a couple of hours and I so loved this case that I just had to solve it!

Evidence: I’ve used ruffled ribbon, wet medium [mists], and I’ve used small beads to represent something sand-like.

Testimony: I’ve written a ‘haiku’ poem, and spread it over 3 journaling spots.

The poems says:

While staring at your beauty
I contemplate who?
Child or woman are you now?

Magically you have grown,
Now you stand on the edge,
Looking forward to the future.

May God always protect you,
Keep you safe and well
Guide you in the years to come.

Thank you for the wonderful challenge, and look forward to the next case!

Hi Eleni,

Love your layout! That cluster of seed beads is just perfect to represent sand. I like your spraying of paint and the way the clouds come down connected by string. Cute photo, too! Great Haiku!
