Art of Oberservation - Week 7 - Life's Lessons

 Here we are in week 7 of class.  This week's memory file's theme is "Life Lesson".    I used a Color Magic Memory file from Heidi Swapp's collection.  All of the envelopes are random from my stash.  I used my Silhouette to make all of the little flags and tabs.  The "life lessons" was made by Heidi and she shared the png file in class.

 Here's a closer view.  I wanted light gray and light yellow, but once I misted the folders with Tattered Angels Charcoal it was quite a bit darker than I was shooting for, so I went with a more vibrant yellow to compensate.  The vellum envelope contains "Mom was right".  You know, all those things your mother used to tell you and you would roll your eyes - now that you're older you find yourself passing along the same advise? 
Each of the envelopes contain an insert with Lessons I've learned.  Some are Silly like the ones below and others are serious.  The mini yellow file folder contains my "serious" lessons as well as photos of the people in my life who have taught me valuable lessons in life.
This is the outside of the folder.  I misted seam binding and sewed it into a ruffle right on the folder.  Gotta love sewing machines and scrapping!!

 Here's a close up of my "silly - kid" lessons

And my "Funny Life Lessons"
