Childhood Memories

This weeks challenge theme over at June's Dezinaworld is.....
.......Childhood Memories
I'm sure many of us made wishes when we were young, maybe some of them came true.
I have happy memories of my childhood and I hope you do too.
We lived with my grandparents in a large old  house with a garden that went down to the river.

I used a page from  my journal as a base for this digital page
It is  kraft paper and I had used a stencil and texture paste .
I try to take photos [if I remember] of my basic layer, very handy to use  as a base for  the digital pages.
 I altered colours added images,  mainly from Dezinaworld, this little girl looks so sweet, sitting and perhaps day dreaming.
Other sources were Mischief Circus and my own stored ones.

Thank you for calling to see me today, I always appreciate the comments you leave for me
