Dream Big

Hi everyone!
Have you seen the new merge of The Color Room with Scrap for Help?  I say it's an awesome collaboration!  And their March palette is glorious!  I am also working with the journaling theme and sketch of OUAS
So here's my take on these awesome challenges
some closies for you!

I had a lot of fun painting and stamping

and here's my journaling.  Something I seldom share ever...We had decided on adoption and then they happened.  We had the philosophy that there were too many children in the world needing a good home and we needed to do just that.  But life has a way of sneaking on you and unknowingly I became pregnant.  Maybe it was a way of God deciding we were fit enough to be parents, I don't know...
Then she came, she was planned and expected by all of us.  I wouldn't have my life any other way I have done it right by having them and I feel complete.

and a background detail before it was all covered up...

part of the TCR challenge was to use junk mail, well this isn't exactly junk, but a piece of mail from a carefully wrapped and sent package by dear Eila Sandberg, I saved it to use somewhere and this was the perfect opportunity.  She gave me the most beautiful Papir design blooms and goodies,
 Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
here's the sketch

and color palette

Hope you can make time to play in one of these great places!
Thanks for stopping by

So gorgeous, Milagros, and very sweet journaling! I love the color and all the detail and layering around that fabulous photo is just amazing! Love how you did your title work with part die cut and part printing directly on the photo. The lattice cut is just stunning, too!
