Wild & wonderful & amazing


Wild & wonderful & amazing


My childhood was wild & wonderful & amazing. I think. At least the bits I do remember. And these are possibly my favourite life moments. Eat, sleep, play. Repeat. I remember going to the supermarket with my grandfather in the afternoons to taste food in the aisles. And the pretty dresses my mother sewed me. And the purses I always carried. The bicycle with a basket. My red doll. What are your childhood memories like?


Here I was...in one of those dresses. And the mum-cut mushroom-like hair. (cue: laughter)

Some misting and some handstitching on those beautiful flowers (I love American Crafts)...pink ric rac (too lazy to stitch that portion...lol), journaling card: Studio Calico, felt piece: Tinkering Ink, resin sticker: Stemma, starburst stickers: EK Success and button.

what a beautiful layout! I like the stitching you did on the flowers you cut out and then adding that rick rack to the paper edges is a neat idea!
