18- Growing up

I had so much fun cracking this case.

So for my" "evidence" I used:
tissue paper layered over my background patterned paper as it was a darker grey than I wanted so I layered the white tissue paper over it to lighten it.
I also have leaves (chipboard)
I have twisted some prima twisters to try and visually link the two areas of my layout.
I also have a couple of pieces of bling.

For my "testimony" I used the inspiration words as jumping points; growth, extreme and bloom.
I also "grew" my journalling by writing more than I generally word.
And I also made the journalling all about the growth of someone (my daughter)

Journalling is written around the edges of the page.

Sarah, what a little cutie and a gorgeous page! Love how your tree is part of the title—that’s so cool!, and the flowers are beautiful. I always love the bits of texture you tuck into your pages. The tissue paper layer looks awesome! Love your journaling around the perimeter.
