It's time once again for the mid-month challenge at http://csichallenge.blogspot.com . The pink and yellow colour palette is so pretty it's impossible not to end up with a eye-pleasing layout.

Here's the inspiration photo:

And the list of clues to play along:

solid background
floral pattern
puffy stickers
tissue paper
book pages
gold elements
washi tape
vintage elements


Topic: Document something about reading.
Prompt Idea: Get inspired by a word at Sunday Scribblings
Presentation: Put your journaling on a label.
Writing Format: Write tips for something related to your topic.
Inspiration Words: style, hide, surprise

217.206.200 - light warm gray
254.179.186 – ballerina pink
211.76.80 – light cherry red
19.3.3 – black
238.198.129 – buttery yellow

The five colours are all there.

 Evidence: Stripes, Floral pattern, Flowers, Ribbon, Bling, Gold elements, and Washi tape.

 Testimony: Presentation - Put your journaling on a label.

I put my journaling on a tag instead of a label.

A few details:
 Striped butterfly, gold brad, floral pattern, flowers, and bling. The leaves were cut with my Silhouette.

 Ribbon, and journaling on a tag.

My grand-daughters, Rosalie and Violet, are cousins and best friends. I hope they remain close for a long time.

Here are some of the supplies I used to create my layout.  I love that Recollection paper pad bought at Michaels years ago. I have quite a few of these cheap paper pads. They are my go-to papers for practically all my layouts.

That's it. I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge. You might even want to try out for the Design Team.

Until next time, À la prochaine,

 Jacynthe ☺


  1. Well this is another beautiful layout that you created. Of course I love all the colors and I really like the floral cluster that you used. Your journaling is perfect as well. I would give this an ATTT!
    Take care - Ginger

  2. I think I have said this before, but I loove visiting your web page and see the name of your blog:-) It makes me laugh every time:-)
    I agree with you that this is a really pretty palette, and so is your page. Summery and lovely, and documenting dear memories. (Grand-) children grow up so fast, and it is really nice to have these photos and pages to look back on.

  3. Jacynthe, what a beautiful layout! I especially love your journaling since having a girl cousin who lived close to me never came to be. Being an only child, I would have loved a close friendship with a girl cousin. Getting back to your LO....Your stamping, paper tearing, layering and design are divine! Your work has created a flawless presentation for that gorgeous, back-lit photo!

  4. What a precious photo and sweet layout. Love all the different textures.

  5. Gorgeous page as usual Jacynthe!

  6. That photo is amazing! Gorgeous page--the colors couldn't be more perfect. Love the mix of patterns, as always, and all the perfect, sweet details you add that make the eye travel throughout your page again and again to discover little surprises!
