Listen To Your Soul

Another month, and another reveal at My Creative Sketches. This month's layout is inspired by this lovely sketch by Kristine Davidson.

I used papers from My Mind's Eye's Follow Your Heart collections for my layout, embellished with some flowers and vines from Prima, and crystals from Prima and Webster's Pages.

The photos were taken during a sunset boat ride along the Tonle Sap Lake in Siem Reap, Cambodia, last December. It was a beautiful, peaceful moment, an excellent time to reflect and "listen to your soul".

Thanks so much for dropping by, and do hop on over to the MCS blog, and join in the fun! There's a fabulous prize up for grabs this month, so I'm looking forward to seeing all your lovely layouts!

I created this 8" x 8" layout as a present for my sis-in-law, to take home with her to Wisconsin (framed in a shadow box, of course). I used the same photo and sentiment as my previous, DT layout for My Creative Sketches, but used a different design for this layout, to fit the 8" x 8" frame.

This is one of my favourite 'Family' sentiments.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
