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.

The chipboard "lifetime of memories" is from Imaginarium Designs"

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