A 6x6 Page to Share

I completed my 2 sided 6x6 mini album page for KayTee's travelogue.  KayTee's theme was "Artistic Memories".  She wanted us to create a page (2 sides) depicting how we were inspired in the past and in the present. 
The above is my 'story' telling how I was inspired by my mother and grandmother.  The center block is a double-slider that, when pulled, shows a photo of my mother and grandmother.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of the slider pulled.  I used vintage stickers from Colorbok, designed by Sandy Clough.  I've had these stickers for a long, long time and they were perfect for this page.  I used vintage buttons and wrapped thread onto a mini spool.  The advertisement for a Singer sewing machine was perfect because that was the machine I learned to sew on--my great-grandmother had one just like it!  My mother made alot of our clothes on that ancient machine.  Hence that's how I was inspired!  My mother and grandmother pretty much taught me all the 'crafty knowledge' I know today.   The background paper is a sewing pattern made by October Afternoon.  The gray button on the right is attached to a smaller tag that has my journaling.  

This is the backside of the page.  This depicts how I'm inspired today.  The photo, in case you didn't recognize it, is of my blog page.  I find my 'bliss' (inspiration) by blogging and perusing videos on YouTube.  I used Webster's paper with Prima flowers; a white butterfly (K&Co.); butterflies punched from a MS punch.  I created a pocket to hold a tag with my journaling.  The pocket is edged with paper punched with another MS punch.

I have 5 more travelogues coming my way to create for.  I'll share my pages as they are completed.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!

I actually did a project like that a couple of months ago, although your style quite frankly looks gorgeous! I definitely love how your embellishments are organized around the page! The embellishments do a great job for this particular topic, which certainly provides me with a few great options to try!
