Small Gifts

Sharing my take on Aug challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch, with this beautiful sketch and awesome theme to journal about the men in our lives:
The photo is of my darling boys, and the title says, in Hebrew: Small Gifts. it's the title of very beautiful Israeli song, and I used the lyrics for my journaling. In free translation it says: "Small gifts, someone sent me small gifts, shards of light, circles of faith; Small gifts, someone sent me small gifts, like the strength to accept what we don't have, what we have. what else can I ask for."
I also goes for the chevrons challenge at Frosted Designs.
I used my Aug Counterfeit Kit, with StudioFourteen40 flairs, Petaloo flowers, and Lindy's Stamp Gang starburst and magical. I also used Cheery Lynn Design doily die.
Here are some close-ups on the details:




Thank you for visiting my blog and I appreciate your comments very much.
