"Memory" is the challenge and there were a few ideas on how to present it, some did not work, but I think this idea of old letters and photographs do and also the thought of the elderly lady with her memory album in her lap.
Photograph of boy is my husband, the elderly lady and bride are Google images, Envelopes by fungopolly and brushes of vintage post cards by Fidget Resources.

I was really stumped with the lemon tree until I tried textural effects from "Digital Photography Special Effects" by Michael Freeman, I took a graphic of a tree without leaves and made a embossed layer, then I ran it through Filter Forge filters and then applied an action by PFx Reflections Triptych.

Exodus is the theme for #5, I had to think about this and took the meaning of the word to imply the movement of people, I did not want to tie it into migration. I have taken images of people fleeing from Kenya, movement of people across the Himalayas; images of people at the waterfront in Haiti, and an old photo of people arriving at the Port of Melbourne, this last image is a tribute to my husband Henk who arrived in Australia in 1956 from the Netherlands.

My interpretation of dark is based on NYX the goddess of the night, who is usually represented as the substance of night: a veil of dark veil of mist drawn from the underworld which blotted out the light of Aither (shining upper atmosphere).
So I hope you can interpret the following design.
Mist of Darkness
The background is a photograph I took of dawn from my back door, I used it twice then created some clouds and did some fiddling. The dark veil is actually a selection of hair distorted.

Home in a Shoe
I was rather taken with this shoe from Shutterstock and could not resist the temptation to make it into a home for my fairy. I was guided through this design "Create a Magical Image Using Photoshop Manipulation" from PSDFan.
I will appreciate your comments and advice.
