It's a mail theme at this week's Take a Word Challenge. I have chosen to create an envelope with a French (and Belgian) flavour. The image is from e-vint.com - altered and coloured. Other elements and papers from Lauren Bavin.
It's a bit hard to accept that photos of me are now VINTAGE. This one was taken on my 21st birthday when I was emerging into adulthood (we were late bloomers in those days). My bouffant hairdo screams the Sixties. I didn't have a line on my face and now my ten year old grandson asks me "what are those pleats in your neck?" Over fifty years ago! I can't believe it. My choice of partner was a disaster, my marriage a joke. There are pluses and minuses but I guess the pluses have won because my three children and four grandchildren are a joy to me.
The background, edge pieces and ferns are from Lorie Davison at Scrapbookgraphics - one of the first digital kits I bought years ago.
