Remembering sweets from childhood . ..


Over at UK Stampers the art journal prompt for this week is all about favourite sweets from childhood..we are to name 5 sweets and include a wrapper on the page. Whenever I see milky way sweets it always reminds me of going on the ferry across the river mersey to new brighton. Mum used to buy my brother and I milky way bars to eat whilst we watched the waves on the mersey...it used to be great running down the gangway to the pier head and then getting on the ferry and the excitement as the ferry bumped against the landing stage over at new brighton..sadly this ferry doesnt run anymore. I took a photo of some of the old ferry boats at the weekend and I have merged it so it looks ghostly along with a photo of me when I was about 3yrs...must get some more childhood photos of me looking cute..lol!

Do you remember how it was marketed as the sweet you could have between meals?! Much like Maltesers were eaten by ballerinas they were so light! Yes, I fell for that one.

Great journal page, bringing back happy memories for you.

Great page again Lorraine.

This collage has a dreamy (and milky) effect that's pleasantly soft and ethereal looking.
