Thinking of You

 Time for a new challenge at Paper a la Mode over at The Outlawz and the theme is Thinking of You!  

I chose to create with the Poppies page from Anne's Digital Art.  You can see below, it comes with the lovely Poppies and rectangle border.

Red Poppy Flower Meaning – What Does The Poppy Represent

Red poppy flowers represent consolation, remembrance and death. Likewise, the poppy is a common symbol that has been used to represent everything from peace to death and even simply sleep.

Since the theme of the challenge is Thinking of You, this Poppy frame seemed perfect!  Also, a wonderful time to think about my dad who recently passed away.

I chose to add a sentiment to the image in Cricut Design Space.  I then colored it and placed it in my Homemade Art Journal!  Join me in the video below showing the simple mixed media background for this page!
