Hazel Layout - 7 Dots Studio Guest Designing for Scrap Around The World {Soulmates Collection}
Plus a New Challenge up at Studio 75!

Hello everyone!  It's been a really busy time for me in the last week - getting back from vacation & sorting out everything new {Design Team, Sponsors & Guests} at Scrap Around The World, plus working on some projects due in this month.  Today the 7 Dots Studio team are our Guests at SATW & as a member of the 7 Dots Studio Team I contributed another layout for the current challenge.  It was fun to work on the mood board again as I did my Design Team layout ages ago!

Here's a reminder of our current mood board.  You can find our challenge HERE. I used the wonderful new "Soulmates" Collection for my layout.  You can view it HERE.  My layout is about the kitten we got for my daughter, to cheer her up after a very messy break-up, only for the kitten to get very sick & eventually die :(  It was a terrible time...

I was inspired by the colours of the board as well as the roses 
{I used a really old Rose die-cut paper as part of my background}. 
 I also added a clock, part of a frame & also thought the saying was appropriate. 

This collection has 2 sheets of stickers, a tag sheet & a pop-out/die-cut 
sheet full of really versatile quotes & sayings to do with love.

For my mixed media background I used gesso, Prima Color Bloom Sprays as well as glitter.  The Script stamp is part of the awesome stamp set that goes with the Soulmates Collection.

It's my third time stopping over here, finally leaving a comment. I was too sad about your kitty before. Hugs from here! I do love those letters you used and the whole page is a memory of the team work you guys all employed to try to save her.

Stunning page! Sorry about your kitty...but your page is certainly a page of love! Fantabulous!

Eila Sandberg said...

Oh I was so sad to read about Heather and how all the love in the world couldn't save her. I can totally relate. This is such a wonderful page too, soft and full of sweetness. xoxo

Yeah such a sad story but in the time she was with you she brought love and she was loved in return. Breakups are never easy and as a mommy our jobs are never done. This is a beautiful tribute to your sweet kitty.
