Journal 52 Photography and a trip down memory lane


This weeks prompt  for Journal 52 --week 19  was Photography.
 Back in the day,  before digital cameras my OH took loads of photos,  Many in Family scrapbooks, most now stored in a huge box. We had a trip down memory lane, sorting one for me to use. This was one of  our many  choices,  a small town in Alsace not far from Colmar.  You can tell one of the enjoyments of visiting France was not just the scenery. I used a set of Creative Expressions stamps to decorate the page and distress inks for shading.

 This is a page from one of  my old scrapbooks, back then [1980-90s]  ,  we used to buy wine direct from the vineyard into a small cask.  Usually arriving there on our bikes. Go back to our caravan, and bottle it into a posh  labeled empty bottle and enjoy.
 You can maybe tell how my crafting has changed over the years not a sign of any inks,  distressing, just the papers, still as this book was put together  years ago, I wouldn't change the memories it holds for anything  in this  world..
Thank you for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.
