Art Journal Week 15 - Parents


This is my card. It was hard to do as those of you who read my blog regular will know that my mum died when I was just turning 7 years old. I do love this photo of them & I always think how happy & carefree they looked when they were courting. Then my sister & I were born, mum got cancer & our family unit broke.
