ColourQ # 89 / Courage

Hello everyone in blogland.  
Today I have my DT post for ColourQ - the 
colors this week were really wonderful and 
easy to work with. The photo I used is an old 
everyday photo of my grandmother Gussie - I 
don't even know who took it. 
Here is a look at my LO,,,
I have used my mini pad from Lily Bee designs for this as well 
as Bazzill cardstocks. My embellies are from The Girls Paperie,
Prima, Maya Road, Ranger, Martha Stewart, Heidi Grace and Basic Grey.

Here is a look at this weeks color palette from ColourQ 

 Arielle does such an amazing job of picking the colors for us! 
Please stop by the   BLOG   and take a look at the wonderful 
projects made by the other ladies. 

I am also entering this in the challenge over at  Scrapbookers Anonymous   as 
I have used 3 sheets from my mini pad. I have also
used a sketch from  Stuck On U Sketches for this LO. 
Also,    Once Upon A Sketch   where the challenge was to
journal at least two sentences about a female on your page. 

I hope you are having a great week so far. 
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I love to hear your feedback, 
so please leave me a comment!

  5. Anita,
    Hi there. I saw this on the CQ blog and just had to come by and tell how much I LOVE your page of your gramma. It reminded me so much of my own gramma who lived to be 97.. almost 98, and has been gone for a while now. Your details just high her, yet she remains the focus. Love the hand written journaling too. Just beautiful.
