23 - Dear Franchu

This was tough!! And totally ot of my comfort zone. I really had a hard time with the colours. I'm still not totally convinced but I guess this is the best it gets this time! Quite a challenge to use pink in a layout about my grandson. I don't know if my son in law will approve! LOL
For the evidence I used flowers, bees and the stripes in the background Since the flowers looked a bit flat in the beginning I ended up cutting a second layer and raising it with tape. Some closeups here: http://www.fotomemorias-scrapbooking.blogspot.com.ar/2012/06/reto-23-de-csi.html
Testimony: Wrote my journalling as a letter
Thanks for looking!

Oh, I think the pink is perfect, Elaine! So happy and spring-y. Love all the little bees and your pen work. Just delightful!

Elaine!!!! You did a fab job this- I also added LOTS of pink to my son's layout. Pink is totally 'in" on boys layouts ;)
