back to school and a little bit of nostalgia




Two of my sons were back to school this morning. My eldest starts secondary school next monday so we went to pick up his new uniform today..he hasnt stopped wearing it! Had a little bit of time to make a quick ATC...the theme over at Think Monday Think ATC is nostalgia so be sure to check out all the other entries too. This ATC features scraps of paper, an old napkin from a friend, feather, little flowers and some stitching. I quite like mounting ATCs onto cards as then I can use up all my stacks of paper scraps.


Its comments like the following that really make me happy..you just dont know how your little paper creations affect people...thanks Nancy B!

"This really takes me back to my childhood as my Grandmother always used Cashmere Bouquet soap. My Grandmother died when I was 7 years old but it was like I could smell that scent again when I saw your ATC. Thanks for the memories."

Great idea to mount them on cards Lorraine. Would look sweet having many hanging in your studio as a big group! xox Corrine
