Art Journal Week 25!!

Nearly half way!! The prompt was given to us by Tara, a friend of Emily's. As Emily is moving home & about to have a baby & trying to settle in. The prompt is A photo that means something to you.
This picture was taken by me in August 2000. It is very poor as I only had an instant 110 camera. But, the tag behind the pic tells my emotions when I look at this & how the memories of the weekend stay with me. The pic is of my sister & BIL at Queen's Head Hotel, Troutbeck, Ambleside, Cumbria. It was one of the best weekends' of my life. Now he has passed away & the picture is very precious to me. Each time I see it I am reminded of what a fun loving person he was & how much we enjoyed the time there.


This is a picture of the first twenty five cards on my big book ring!

HI Paula,

I remember you saying a while ago that you had lost your BIL and you still miss him now....you have preserved his memory beautifully.

Paula... very nice! I near did the same kinda sentiment with a photo of my Dad and two brothers... one passed away last year in a motor cycle accident. Couldnt. Will do one day, just not yet.

So I also did what you did here with the ring... sick of getting my cards "out of order" LOL!
