My Mind's Eye Challenge #12: I Remember

My Mind's Eye is one of my favorite brands. I love their pretty papers, cute titles & journaling cards. I decided to play along with their Blog Challenge #12 - to create an 'I Remember' layout based on this sketch:

This is a really great sketch. You can flip it any which way, and it makes a super layout! Here's my take on it, using an old photo of my dear grandma & I...

I rotated the sketch clockwise so I could incorporate the Jenni Bowlin 'ADORE' Bingo card in as my title. I used papers from My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary 'Jack & Jill' and 'Sooo Cute' lines, stickers from the My Mind's Eye So Sophie Savvy line, vintage seam binding, Martha Stewart bakers twine & a few vintage buttons. Distressed some edges & did a little stitching. I do love these colors together!

The theme was 'I Remember', but the note I included on my layout just states
'remember * i will always adore you'

Worked on some other pages & cards this past (very rainy!) weekend, so will be back soon to share...
