Memory

This is my latest Stampsmith DT creation.  The paper is Prima "Indeed" collection.  It's absolutely gorgeous.  I've also used the backing card from a couple of Prima flower packets - it's way too good to waste.  The frame is Maya Road - again covered with the Prima paper.

  

You can't see it very clearly in the photo but this is the little heart charm hanging at the bottom (actually this isn't a very good photo either so apologies).
  

I couldn't resist showing you a couple of pics of the lichen from the old apple tree where I took the photos

  

It reminds me of the sort of things we would have had to paint in art when I was at school - and was rubbish at. LOL

Stunning - truly amazing. I will have to look up those papers - and covering a frame - is a brilliant idea.

I just adore your photos of the lichen too - off to look up more of your posts.

Thank you so very much for commenting on mine - it made my day
