From the Piggy Week 4: Reflections

Hello all!

Welcome to Week 4 of our Capture the Moment LO Contest. This week all layouts must be created using Skrapper Digitals Artistic Heritage Collection Autumn Reflections mega kit.

Artistic Heritage Collection Autumn Reflections

We are continuing our path down the four season. This week our focus is fall.


Your assignment is "Reflections" and there are two directions you may take to interpret this theme. The first is to reflect on a loss, whether that be a person, pet or time in your life. It is a difficult topic, but one that happens frequently in all our lives. The second is to reflect on you, more of an introspection, have it be a profile of who you are... whether that be you past or present.
  • This LO must contain at least 1 photo.
  • You must use at least 3 background papers.
  • You may not use a template.
  • Element use I again leave completely up to you. There is no right or wrong.
  • There must be journaling. This is a very personal LO and it would not be complete without it.
  • The focus on this LO is the theme.
  • You must post the LO in the Week 4 Gallery Week 4: Reflections by midnight (EST) on Thursday.
Your coupon for this kit will be in your PM box shortly.

Big smooches,

Toiny

This is a beautiful kit! I really like the theme as well; it's a difficult one as you say but one I find to be therapeutic to scrap. Thank you for the lovely kit and the great challenge.

Wow! Okay. This is going to be a challenge this week. I could go with the obvious and make another page for my grandfather's memory book, or I could go in a different direction. I'll have to mull this over and see where inspiration takes me.

Thank you for the gorgeous kit. Having worked with a number of Sherah's kits over the years, I can say, even before I download and unzip it, that this is a wonderful gift.

I can't believe I finished today! Usually it takes me awhile to finish! I was inspired by my subject and by the artistic beauty of this kit.

This was a tough one for sure! I literally worked all day long on this, first fussing over the wording (I really got personal, not something I like to do online) and then with fussing over what to use and how to place it, just right, in my layout. But since I'll not have a chance to even turn on my computer for the next couple of days, I had to call this done.

Here's my layout (linked to the gallery).



Thank you Toiny and Sherah for this most gorgeous kit. I know for sure that I'll be using it again in the future.

Best of luck to everyone... and also to the judges, I'm SURE the voting on this round will be more difficult then the previous 3!

Here's mine:



This was a very emotional challenge. I initially thought I'd do a layout about the three deaths we had in my family in 2010, my paternal grandmother, my maternal grandmother's brother, and my maternal grandfather (he of the war stories). But in plotting it out, I decided to focus on the strange coincidence that my father and his mother both died at approximately the same time, on the same day, 33 years apart.

Here is my entry. My grandfather's death was something I hadn't scrapped yet. I did a memorial book for the family for Christmas last year but scrapping the family gatherings hadn't happened yet. The Christmas project was emotional.

Sherah, I must say its great to know i'm not the only one using GIMP to scrap. I enjoy the tutorials on your site, Save the Green.

My apologies for going through the gallery slowly, these are very moving LO's and it takes a bit to process each. What a beautiful, but tough, assignment. You are all doing an amazing job.

Smooches,

Toiny
