sepia?...

Good morning everyone, hows your week been, anything exciting?...I was looking through some photos the other day and I remembered my Dad has a block and white photo of my Mum was she was in her early 20's, of course it has sepia tones now but it is an amazing photo and my Mum looks so beautiful in it, I must get a copy of it...apparently when my Mum was that age of course it was the fifties and she had a waspish figure with a 19inch waist would you believe how amazing is that...well at least I have a 19inch thigh so similar lol...anyway the reason for that little story is I tried to recreate the same look with this stunning digi from Crafts and Me...its called Reading Time and is by the super talented Hannah Lynn...hhhmmmm I'm not sure I managed it though what do you think?...I coloured these with distress inks and used some lush paper from Graphic 45's Tropical Travelogue collection called Tiki Voyager...I love love love Graphic45 just in case you hadn't noticed lol...I finished my card with a lush sparkly bow, some gorgeous pins and a few pearls scattered about...well that's me for today, I hope I'm still lying about around the pool atm and Phil has the sense to flip me over now and again, mind he may need a big fish slice lol...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one
