Journaling Junkie Challenge 60

Evening all, just quickly popping on to show you my layout for Journaling Junkie's Challenge 60. It is to create a mini album (or a LO) about your favourite things. My layout is titled 'Treasures' and is about the wonderful trinkets I inherited from my mum. She has a glass cabinet full of crystal, wedgewood, and other ornaments that were special to her, they are now very special to me and my children.
The journaling says:

"I have a home full of TREASURES, reminders of my mum, of the girls’ Nanny, of a special person in our lives. There are things that mum bought for us or for the girls, especially Kelsey, like the special pair of pink shoes and the little denim skirt. And there are things that I inherited. These I treasure the most as they were a part of her world. Her jewellery, especially Nan’s wedding ring, which mum wore after she died. I now wear as a reminder of both of them. Her antique glass cabinet that contains all her precious pieces – her crystal pieces, including animals, wedgewood, trinkets and this perfect little statue of mum that dad commissioned for her when she graduated from Oxford University. I always admired the cabinet, I just wish that I had appreciated it back then and asked mum about some of the pieces in it. Nevertheless it is my most prized treasure and I will keep it safe for eternity."

So go over to Journaling Junkie and have a go at this challenge. Closes 14 July.

I hope you like.
