Hope is one of those words we all use and I do wonder how many of us,
  me included stop and think what it really means in our lives.
  This word, I am sure will be included in  many  of our stories and memories.

So  I have made a hybrid page to share over at
where the theme for the month chosen by Erika is....
Tell me a story....

This is the start  base layers of my page, paint , stencils and another tissue napkin of a robin.
One of my recent bargains  found in the supermarket selling off excess Christmas stocks.
It was finished in my computer program with words and digital additions [notes in my sidebar].

Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are very welcome here.

I hope you all have a safe and happy Sunday.


  1. Love your journal page with the beautiful birds, robins are always so sweet. Great to stock up on bargain napkins, did the same thing here. Thanks for another great page for AJJ. Have a lovely Sunday, hope it's not too cold. Hugs, Valerie

  2. Hope is such an important word when you really think about it. I think it is what keeps so many of us going. I know it does me. I love all the depth on your page. I need to play with some digital images I think. :) Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Hugs-Erika

  3. The pure bird page looks so nice, but after putting some digital things to it, it is perfect. I like it much.
    Dear greetings and have a nice new week.

  4. Both pages and words are really beautiful Yvonne. ( I always love your digital wizardry )
    I must look out for napkins more this year as I only seem to see plain ones.
    Hope you've had a lovely weekend and the weather been ok.
    We had a couple of days of snow - but it was hardly anything although a bit icy.
