White With One

I saw that this month's White With One challenge was all about hot pink, and I KNEW who this page had to be about :)
My mum LOVED pink. The pinker the better in her opinion. No icky pale pinks for her! When we told the funeral director that we wanted a pink coffin for her funeral he smiled and said "I have this cream one lined in pale baby pink"
NO!
We wanted PINK!!!!
She would have loved it :)
Anyways...here is my entry for this month! My artisan shape was hand drawn, cut out, shabbied up, backed with some bright pink paper and stitched back together again. Which was fiddly and ended up making everything wonky :-/

I get these ideas in my head, and they just don't *quite* translate to the paper.
And then lots of pink :) Just how she would have liked it.
I am trying to make some pages like this all about her. With the grandbabies arriving thick and fast, we need to record these things.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Kirsty! Thanks for dropping past my blog today :).

I so admire layouts that are pink. I just cannot do it! Pink and me do not work nicely together, lol. I am sure your mum would have loved this layout! It looks so warm and lively and fun :)

I get the feeling your Mum was a PINK person. from all you have said about her, she certainly doesnt strike me as a beige or grey person thats for sure !!!! This is so pretty Kirsty... love it !!!! and nothing looks 'wonky' to me :)
