    I Really Like All Of Rachel's Challenges!...But I Like This One A Lot!...I Do This A Lot In My Layouts! Blending Items Into My Photos/Extractions!...So I Had A Crazy! Thought About This Layout!...It Started Out With The Intention Of One Photo!...But It Was Soon Very Apparent To Me That...One Was Not Gonna Create The Vision I Was Going For!...So I Used The Large Version Of The Photo Blended Into The BG...It Is Really Not That Obvious After Blending BG's & Papers!...But The Ladies Head/s Are The Focus Here...So I Gave This A Lot Of Thought...and Since The Ladies Heads Are The Focus!...I Wanted The Elements/Items To Stand Out! & Draw The Eye In!...So I Blended In Several Elements!...With The Large "SUN" Stamp Being The Focus On The 3 Main Ladies Heads!...& I Also Blended In A Sunflower On The Main Photo...Ladies Head!...To Drive Home The Feeling Of Sunshine!...Sun!...& Positivity! For One's Future!...LOL!...I Don't Do Anything Half Way!...My Art Takes Me Where It Takes Me!...So I Understand If This Layout Is Overkill For This Challenge!...It Was Also Inspired By Other Things Not Mentioned Here!...So If Not Acceptable For This Challenge!...I Understand!...Thanks In Advance Either Way!...

    *For My Future You Layout-I Used:

    Here is my challenge layout. This is my 7th grandchild, born last month, and the latest tiny miracle to grace us with her presence! Sadly, she is in constant pain from severe gastric reflux. Her paediatrician is working on the issue so hopefully things will improve soon!

    I loved the idea of this challenge and so many inspirational pages above.
    I used a leaf brush, leaf stamp, and a pattern over my image.
