June Challenge - Part 2

Hey everyone!!! Welcome to the second reveal of our June Challenge!  
We hope you have time to play along this month. We LOVE the entries so far :)

Journalling Theme: The following quote

" the best things in life aren't things" 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is! 

Please welcome our February winner, who is this month's Guest Designer..

Hello! My name is Irina Angold! I live in a small city and I've been interested in scrapbooking for 1,5 years. Everyone knows me as a “flower fairy” since my works usually contain beautiful flower compositions. In the past I also worked with the real flowers, however right now I’ve moved my skills onto the paper. Scrapbooking is not just a hobby but a big part of my life. I like shabby and country, although I try not to create any frames, therefore usually my works contain a mixture of different styles.
I believe that first and foremost creativity is a freedom. It’s a freedom of feelings, freedom of desires and dreams. So I am trying to reflect all this in my art pieces.
My June layout is about the new knowledge and discoveries around and within ourselves. My journaling is on the back of the page.
Have a good day!

When I started to write my journaling it got very personal. It´s about how much I love my family and how I grown as a person after becoming a mother. So my journaling is on the back of the layout.
