The Color Room Palette 8

Have you been into the Color Room yet? It is worth a look. There are so many talented ladies.
Each week a new color palette is posted as well as a sketch. This was my first ever attempt. I was completely inspired by the sketch, so beautiful and a layout I have never seen before.
Here is Palette 8

I used my circle scissors (112530 $54.95 & glass Mat 112531 $37.95) a lot on this layout.
Firstly I used the drawing tool to draw the circle where my photo would be. I then free hand drew the leaf pattern around this, based on the sketch. I stitched over this with green embroidery thread. I cut my photo with the cutting tool.
I then embellished with leaves I made form the 1" circle punch (109046 $20.95) and spiral flowers. The papers are Cottage Wall (115671 $16.95 for 12 sheets)
My journaling reads:-
Yesterday I was pregnant, today I am a mum.
Yesterday we wanted more children, Today you complete our family.
Yesterday my arms were empty, today you fill them.
Yesterday I was happy, today I am overwhelmed with joy.
Yesterday I loved you, today my love for you makes my heart ache.
I hope you like it. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Cassie xoxo
