White Feather - PMB

Hi everyone!
I am sooooooo excited. This is my first Design Team layout for THE PAPERMIXING BOWL!

This is the awesome sketch for the month. Gorgeous colors!

The title for my LO is White Feather.

January 4th my Uncle Marvin passed. I had received the news that morning and it was hard morning. Lots of tears, memories and regrets... wishing I had called, visited, mailed cards. I decided to go to the mailbox and get some fresh air. It was cold, damp and there on the on the asphalt was a white feather. It was rather odd to me and I decided to google the meaning.  What I found gave me goosebumps ... it said... An Angel Has Visited. I found comfort in this... I incorporated the feather into the layout.
The photos I used I took last year at our family reunion. Those have always been so important to our family. I didn't know those would be the last photos that we would have of Uncle Marvin. When I attended the funeral the following Monday... I was so touched that my photos were the ones being used. I felt like I was able to contribute. All the while, on that Friday when I received the news... it was also my Mom's birthday. Needless to say I have hugged her a whole lot more since. 

I used my 3rd Eye Stamps - Kardiogram.

Here is the finished product followed by close ups.
