Missing You

Edit: this lo won 'Star Witness' at CSI!

This is my take on March sketch at Skissedilla, March moodboard at Scrap Around the World, and case file #115 at CSI. 
Usually I don't do girly pages, but the challenges at SATW and at CSI inspired me to go out of my comfort zone of boyish/masculine pages and make a girly one, about me!
Here's the sketch from Skissedilla:
Here's the moodboard at Scrap Aroung The World:
I was inspired by the pink/peach colors of the dress, and the layers of it. I was also inspired by the blooms, so springy :). Another inspiration was the typewriter, which gave me the vintage/retro feeling, as my old photo is.
It also goes for the black/white photo challenge at Scrapy-Wyzwaniowo.
Here's case file #115 at CSI:
The photo is of my Dad and me, way back when I was about 2 year old.
The clues I used to solve the case were:
Scheme - all colors are here.
Evidence - hearts, lace, bird, grid, leaves, flowers, stamps, mixed media background.
Testimony - I used on of the prompt - 'In what good ways you are like you father?' My Dad passed away more than 17 years ago. I still miss him a lot. He was a man who stood up for what he believed in, without fear. Part of mymy jouranling is on the front, and part on the back of the page, and it says: "Mom used to say that I'm so alike  you, having the same character you had. And indeed, just like you, I stand up for what I belive in, going with all the way with my truth, till the end, never giving up. From you I've learnt not to be afraid even facing very powerful people. Although it has been a long time since you passed away, I miss you. I miss you so much. I long to talk with you, tell you what's going on with the kids, with my work. longing to hear your insights, your good advice. I wish I could only once hear you saying to me: 'you're no longer a dummy, you're already a butterfly', or seeing in your eys how much you're proud of me. I still have that big hole in my heart cause you're not here anymore."
Here are some close-ups on the details:





Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. I appreciate every comment you care to leave me.

This is wonderful! Love the vintage-ish look you've got going & it sounds like one of those special pages, with it being about your Dad, too:):)
