12 -Pollenchock och stjärnfall

I absolutely adore teal! Which is why I was surprised to find myself struggling with this page. I trashed a number of ideas and half finished pages just because I had chosen a background paper that I made which was not cooperationg with my ideas! Eventually I put that paper away and this is the result. I'm still not quite sure I like the result, but there it is.

The case shot made me instantly think of one of the songs by the awesome Lars Winnerbäck. (I scrapped his lyrics before) I'm not sure my english allows me to translate the words here LOL! Pollen chock (When the air is full of pollen in the spring) and shooting stars.
The journalling is from the lyrics -a part that I particularly like. Not easy to tranlate without losing the energy of the words. "Tell me the stocks are falling and the rate is turning down, give me hints and good advice so I can act the opposite -because those sorts of things are not the stuff that dreams are made of."

Evidence: flowers, clouds (my faves), something fluffy, stars (in the title)
testimony: Document a dream (sort of), get carried away (the whole lyrics is about getting carried away in a sense)

Thanks for looking and now I can't wait to see how you all solve this case. It's amazing how different the solved cases look even though we all use the same input. Happy scrapping everone!

Adorable clouds!  I love the photo filter.

Very pretty page, and even though maybe something is lost in the translation of the lyrics, I can definitely relate to the feeling! Also, I am really glad you used those flowers, because I have them and while they are sitting on a half-finished LO I think they might look good on my version of this Case too.

I think your layout turned out beautifully Sylvia! Those circles and flowers are gorgeous and I love the dotted clouds and pompon. Very cool photo treatment!

Det är en av mina favoritlåtar också! Jag tror jag måste lyssna på den ikväll efter att ha sett din layout.
