Guest Designer: Clair
This really was such a challenge. Nothing came to me immediately, so I went through my bookshelves (quite a task in itself) and then I panicked. Just a little. Until I spotted my copy of The Constant Gardener by John Le Carre. The layout reflects the title of the book - using a gardening theme - but it's the journalling that I've hidden away behind the prettiness that is really inspired by one of my favourite characters, Justin Quayle. Justin's 'constant gardening' is his method of problem solving, his very own form of therapy - but constant, also means something that doesn't change, or someone that is always there - and these are qualities that remind me very much of my own dad. And that's why the journalling is squirrelled away - it's a private little tribute to someone very special.
**Margie was inspired to do a card as well!
I hope I see LOTS of links on Mr. Linky for this challenge! I love seeing what everyone comes up with!
