It is a picture of my DD when she was 3 years. We were at a playground with
part of the side of the equipment had decorated with restaurant themes.
She loves to watch Junior Masterchef, and

Memory - Lifetime of Memories

Bird is the word challenge is Memory or Memories.

I made this page of my grandmother, I never met her because she passed away during the
World War 2.
She was my father's mother. She had 9 children (7 sons & 2 daughters).
She was also a very good dressmaker and sewing was her passion.
I have been lucky enough to have been given to me a piece of her embroidery,
just  an exquisite piece of handwork.
Something to treasure, a heirloom to pass to my daughter one day.

A Lifetime of Memories          Close up of the dress form on page
The chipboard "lifetime of memories" is from Imaginarium Designs"

Thanks for looking and leaving any comments, have a great weekend :) Adriana X

The Colour Room #74 challenge - Father's Day

Happy Father's Day
The Colour Room #74 Challenge, loved the colours in this challenge
so I decided to do a card for this Special Day
I did a card for My Darling Husband from 
My Darling Daughter and Me.

The inspirational Sketch and colour theme are from "The Colour Room"
The chipboard word "DAD" is from Imaginarium Designs
Papers used are mostly from "Kaisercraft".
I would like to wish all the Dads in the world a very happy day.
Spend special time with your dad, tell him how much he means to you.

I found this poem about Dad's on the internet
and created a card for my daughter to give to her
dad (my lovely husband).

A Father means so many things...
An understanding heart,
A source of strength and support
right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness,
No matter what comes your way,
A special generosity and always affection, too.
A father means so many things
when he's a man like you......


Enjoy your day. Thanks for visiting *Adriana* :)
