Mind Wide Open

Here is my entry for the very first Mind Wide Open
creative challenge! What do you think? It says "Remembrance" on the top and "In memories, only beauty and love remain untouched by time" along the edge. Those are tiny, tiny, tiny old shell baby buttons attached under the project photo and a vintage millinery flower & leaves above it. It's the first altered domino that I've tried. I've got about 20 more blank ones in my stash, so I'm wide open to the possibilities for more!

There are 33 gorgeous entries in this challenge. I feel for the judges--even I don't know which one to vote for! You can see them all by using this link . You have until July 14th, if you wish to vote and acknowledge your favorite.

Watch next month for the next challenge so you can join in the fun too!
