Remember a moment - for AJJ

A journal page for

On the left you can see how it began, with some handwritten words.
coloured with water colour paint. Then some images stamped onto tissue, Indigo Blu  and Stampers  Anonymous.
More paint, a found relatives photo, some stenciling, even a bit of crackle paint. I added the die cut heart, then decided to stop, after adding the fussy cut bird.

 I think all of us can remember more than one special moment, that sticks in our memories,
 perhaps forgotten for quite a while, then suddenly something happens and whoosh,
back it comes and we look back with fondness  to that special time.
One such moment for me was  triggered when I came across some of my wedding photos.
I remembered  my Grandparents celebrating 
their Golden Wedding Anniversary. We had made a surprise family get together and they loved it.
  I think they would have liked to visit Paris,
 but back then their lives were all about their home and family.

So, go on,   have a little think and see what special moments pop into your mind.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today, I always appreciate the time you take to leave me a comment.
