May


I have been late making my calendar  page for May, there never seems to be enough hours to go round, I often wonder why  time flies, maybe is an age thing as you get older. 
Fond memories is Challenge No 5 over at A Vintage Journey so this was just the prompt I needed to get started. 
I know the image of the couple is a 'found photo' but for me it evokes the memories of my  grandparents who's wedding anniversary was  in May. They had been married for over 50 years when I got married and were devoted to each other. I won't share with you how long ago that was as we are nearly there ourselves.
So this page , random base stamped as always and Vintage Photo distress ink used in copious amounts is    in keeping with the rest of my calendar pages. My Tim Holtz inspiration comes from the way he uses
 'found  photos ' and bits and bobs, includes them  into collages, which with imagination can mean something to the person creating the piece.  His inspiration does make you look at thing differently.
Thank you for stopping by to take a look, your comments are always appreciated.

  2. Yvonne this is gorgeous - it really it is. You can never get enough Vintage Photo! The colouring works so well to create that vintage feel and the collaging elements draw in the eye to the focal point. In fact I am going to look again on my ipad where it is easier to zoom in! Thank you for joining in this challenge at A Vintage Journey and for telling us how you have included Tim's inspiration. Nikki xx

  6. Beautiful calendar page with so much to admire. Love the shades you used and the 'found' image which is so like many of our grandparents. I have some of my grandparents before they married and I treasure those.

  9. What a great found photo! It's nice that it can bring back "warm fuzzies" too.

    Funny how time flies, definitely an age thing methinks - wish it would slow down so I could get more done :-)

  21. What a love page for May! I am in total agreement with you and wonder all the time where did the time go?? It is so nice that after 50 years your grandparents were still fond of each other! This is a lovely tribute to their love and that found photo is wonderful! Love this and thank you so much for sharing your fond memories with us at A Vintage Journey.
