Art of Observation Week 3 - Your Song

This is our Week Three assignment.  Create a memory file using your favorite song, or a song that speaks to you, or a song that just makes you happy.  I chose You are the Sunshine of My Life by Stevie Wonder for my project.  I used to sing this song to the kids when they were little.
 Again we learned how to put a mini album inside the folder system.  This one was just a slightly different technique.
 I used my new Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic folders and made some elements with the Silhouette Cameo & Photoshop.  I made all of the elements on this page.  I bought quite a few of Heidi's elements that go with her line, but they are so pretty I didn't want to use them.  I know.. I have issues.
 This was a fun page.  Heidi showed how to make an envelope pocket on the inside of a flap from a piece of manilla file folder, I changed it up a bit and used a vellum envelope and left the manilla flap off.  I didn't want the manilla color in my color scheme.  All of the elements on this page were handmade and cut with the silhouette.
This is my title.  I wrote the SunShine on a piece of white paper, scanned it, then opened it in the Silhouette Software and traced and cut it.  So cool.
