life is a balance...

Hello dear friends!
Today I'm very excited because I can share my first DT page for Scrap Around The World!
Our challenge for January is  hosted by Karita Vainio and she created a beautiful moodboard with an amazing quote: 
'life is a balance of holding on and letting go'.
I was really inspired by those words and created this page:

...and this is our gorgeour moodboard:

I tried to include all the elements of the moodboard on my page, so you can see frames, keys (actually I used a stencil with keys), flowers, a clock, blue - pink and a bit of green shades and the quote written with chipboard letters. In order to give a vintage and shabby chic style I altered the letters and painted them with crackle, rusty green and blue  paint...

I hope you got some inspiration,
I can't wait to see your creations for our challenge
