Missing You

Hello friends!  I did this layout for the design team at CSI.  This was a fun project for me because I found a photo of my grandfather watering his lovely flowers.  This brought back lots of memories for me because I spent many night with him and my grandmother in Tyler, Texas.  He did pass away in 1986 and he was in his 80's.  I miss him so!

This is the challenge:

Here are my close-ups:

There is a tag behind the photo which reads:

My loving Grandfather while watering his beautiful flowers in his front yard.  I loved this man for he was always so sweet and kind.  He also had a wonderful and delightful sense of humor which made everyone laugh!  He was a floor sander and worked so very hard.  I will always remember the good times we all shared.

This is a list of items that I used:

Bazzill - Gray cardstock
Tim Holtz - Clock Die-cut, Distress Ink ( Rusty Hinge & Peacock Feathers
Martha Stewart - Floral Vine Punch
Bo-Bunny - Butterfly Stamps

This is my daughter and her husband.  They are so made for each other and they show it every day.  They are very happy together and always very comfortable to be around.  Love them!

Here is the challenge:

Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.

Word Inspiration - COMFORTABLE
Creative Challenge - COLOUR COMBO

What does the word COMFORTABLE inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the actual word somewhere on your project 
or simply be inspired by it.  Since words are an integral part of our challenges, we want to know how this month's word stimulated your creative process, so please do explain in your blog post how it inspired you if it isn't obvious in your work.

This month, we offer you a beautiful COLOUR COMBO as the creative challenge. Your task is to use at least 3 colours from our cozy colour palette. You can combine with any neutral colour like white, black, ivory or kraft. So snuggle down, get comfortable and start creating!
