what i've learned

Hey everyone!  Just wanted to share a layout I created for GCD Studios using the new Lydia collection by Melody Ross today.  This will officially be my last layout as a design team member.  I was asked to continue on with the team for another year but I declined to extend my contract.  I want to free up my time a bit and leave myself open for some new opportunities although I'm not really sure what those are t the moment!  LOL 


The Lydia collection is beautiful - I think it might be my favorite new release from GCD Studios this winter.  The colors are so refreshing and fun and the patterns are simply beautiful.

We were given the theme of "lessons learned" to work with for this month - a really great topic but hard to get down on paper sometimes.  The lesson pictured above has to be the hardest one I've learned to date.  I lost my father very suddenly nearly 6 years ago and I still long for the chance to be able to just have one more day, one more hour, one more minute with him.


I love the combination of yellow and gray and this line has some of that as well.  It's such a refreshing color combination especially against a turquoise background.

That's it for me today - thanks so much for stopping by! :)
