Touched by Kindness (Designed for C'est Magnifique)

Again, Nadia created this wonderful sketch for us at C'est Magnifique.  The August kit was assembled with so much lovely elements and pretty vintage papers from Maja Designs.  There's a balance of ying and yang in the kit too.  Check out some of the masculine pages created by the Design Team on the blog and in the gallery.

I had some help in obtaining pictures from my best friend’s family photos, and I’m going to make her an album as a surprise. Here she is as a young girl growing up in Argentina. The Leaky Shed Studio chipboard was painted white, and inked in grey and blues. After it dried, I applied glass bead gel on various places of the chipboard and added some crackle in other areas as well. The small flowers were made using a die-cut.
