the documented life project- weekly challenge 3

Welcome to Week 3 of The Documented Life Project!
January 12 Challenge - Add an envelope from your mailbox.
I am a collector of mail. I can't part with all of the beautiful mail art that I have been blessed with in the past. This was a perfect challenge for me!
I layered up a few of the most colorful, artsy samples I could find and stitched them to the page, in layers, creating little pockets.
I like being able to see some of my dear friend's handwriting when I open up to this page. It reminds me of happy times. I had a very special postcard that a pal sent to me from overseas that I wanted to incorporate.
I used some washi tape to add it in, so it could fold out- I can read my pretty sentiment this way.
I love the details, the color and the special meaning that this challenge offered. I loved this challenge!
Pretty little details!
Looking forward to your interpretations of this week's challenge and can't wait to meet you back here next week!
