Journey

Hello again,
Yep, two post in a day. Hope you like them both :)

I fell in love with this sketch from Get Creative challenge blog. Here's the object of my affection :)
 
The huge circle is stunning, right? I decided to play. And here's my take:

I have a funny story back when my brother was born, 1983. It's when the picture on my page was taken. My brother, ofcourse, is a boy. But at that time, I was only 2 years old, I have a strong faith that he's a she. So I gave her the nickname "Heidi" from my favorite bedtime story about an orphan young lady. I dream that later in life my brother will have a long black hair, soft voice, and we went to school together as sisters. It was my dream. In fact, I have a brother who plays robots and wearing Batman costume. But the nickname I gave him, stays until today. Yey!!

To remember that funny days, I made a page about my little brother in pink delicate colors. He must be maaaaddd to me....LOL! Yes, he grows up into a young man with beard, deep-hard voice and tattoo. This pink page, definitely NOT him. I live my dream with this page :)

Some pinky details
That's me, starring at my newborn brother (which I'm sure he's a girl that time).

Prima flowers, local manufacturer's leaves and doilies.

Hand-stitch with SewEasy and knitting yarn.

Tattere Angel's glimmer mist on Crafter's Workshop template.

MME's Follow Your Heart paper series. Love the delicate colors :)

My favorite part of this page: The title. I put Tim Holtz's Idea-ology philosophy tag. It written: Journey. That day, my brother's journey of life begins. A journey that makes him a tough MAN, not woman, of course :) See you next week, fellas. Take care.



I would like to play on Get Creative May 15th layout sketch challenge
And it seems that sketch at  Sassy Scrappers May challenge has a little bit similarity with GC. I feel the same fun! So I also enter my work for them. Hope it's fine :)

  2. What a funny story - I too would like to have a sister, but the good Lord gave me a brother instead (which is not bad, of course, but like you said, the femimine side of growing up and trying Mom's high heels is missing :) )
    I'm so happy you liked and tried the sketch - you did a wonderful job with it!! Thanks for playing with us at GC!

    1. Dear Lizzy, thank you so much for your love. My brother has a very good sense of humor but I don't think he see this LO as a humor, since I mean it...LOL. Sometimes I like to make him mad cause he looks funny when angry :)
