I hope that you are having a super Saturday, whatever you are doing!
We had the most amazing African thunderstorm last night, with lots of wind, lightning and thunder...but unfortunately, not very much rain. The wind continued blowing this whole day and has just blown all the clouds away. Some much needed rain, would have been really nice.
I finished my page for the OUAS October challenge. This was the challenge.
Journalling Theme: "The women/girls etc in our lives..."
You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is!
I turned the sketch on it's side.
So here's my take on it.
This page is about my sister Sharon.
This photo was taken on my engagement day in 2005. I was saying to my sister, just this morning, that we looked so young here. LOL
My journalling is under the photo and is the tag sticking out. It says this:
My sister is not just my sister, but also my best friend. We virtually see or speak to each other every single day. We chat, we confide and we support each other, in so many ways.
Sometimes, it is just to pop in and have that very needed cup of tea! ;-)
We don't always see eye to eye and sometimes a little space is needed..
But we always find our way back to sisterhood and friendship.
It is a relationship that I hold very dear and one I hope will carry us into the elderly years.
We often laugh and say that we had better tell the other one, when at 80, our memory is fading or we are doing daft things. I hope that is surely the case!!!
Here is a close-up of the two of us.
I used the really pretty Botanical Tea from Graphic 45, and it was so fitting, because we love our tea and so often share a cuppa together.
Here is a close-up of the stencilling and watercolouring, along with lots of fussy cut elements.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate the visit.
Be back soon!
