19 - A mother's dreams are secret prayers

When I saw Case File No.19 I was really caught by the colour pallette and the wonderful clues. Being a mother myself I understand now what mother's love means and I wanted to scrap about it.
Here I am with my first daughter (aged 5 months old) playing with the piano.
I used two pleated flowers (one with lace and the other is a paper rosette) and border punches as clues from the Evidence. Then I made a little booklet with one of the lovely printable papers of CSI where I wrote my journaling. The journaling is written in Greek and it says about the multiple roles a mother has, about her unique love which lasts forever and about the fact that she always is an open hug for us.
