Tuesday Taggers Entry

I thought this layout would be perfect for the Tuesday Taggers competition this week. The theme is memories and this layout tells the story of my grandparents who were separated during the war when my Grandad was sent to Egypt. The beads around the wedding photo were sewn on by hand and the poem was from a card that he sent made of papyrus paper to my grandma from Egypt.
The poem reads :
For You Alone
However busy I maybe
Whenever we're apart
There's still a shrine of memory
Deep down within my heart
Where I preserve your image dear
Forever to Remain
And thoughts of you bring constant cheer until we meet again

Ocean Dreams ATC

The theme for Joanna Sheen's swap this month is Ocean Dream.

I thought it would be apt to evoke the era of the Ocean Cruise Liners in an ATC.

I made an ATC folded card, then covered the inside with papers. The outside was coloured using distress ink. I used various images in a collage style inside and out. The postmarks and bon voyage wording were stamped over the top in distress ink. I then closed the ATC using eyelets and tied string.

Been a bit poorly

Unfortunately I spent the whole of last weekend in hospital with a kidney infection so haven't managed to get any crafting done at all. Im slowly getting back on my feet and hope to share some new ideas soon. Ive had plenty of time in bed to think of some!

Belated Happy Easter to you all x
