A pause....

Bags are packed,
 tickets in hand,
 tis off we go to play in the sunshine

"OLW" Blog Hop...

Hello sweet friends,

Bird Image: Brave Girl's Club

It is not always easy to fly,
Yet I believe...

We all have angel wings,
sometimes I forget...

Around my neck this I wear,

a beautiful reminder...

So come with me, where dreams are born,
and time is never planned. Just
think of happy things,
and your heart will FLY on wings, forever, in
Never Never Land...
Peter Pan

Look at me, swinging high into the air,
so young, so fearless...

And this is how the pages look within my album, which is really more of an altered journal using bits and pieces of vintage ephemera.  If you would like to see the beginning of this project, go here Come Fly With Me

Left page:   "scrap lifted" a concept from Betsy Samarco, design team member, Jenny Bowlin Blog
I created the faux vintage flashcards with my "OLW"  The little crystal blossoms are vintage, aren't they sweet?
Right Page:  Shopped my old stash and found, PHEOBE BasicGrey paper pad and for fun added a little strip of vintage lace.

Left page:  I snapped a photo of the beautiful sky, while standing in my front yard.  No embellishments, simple word strips.

Right page:  Was struggling with Ali's promt to include a full page self portrat when I remembered this black & white photo of me as a little girl and thought it would be perfect to capture my "OLW" FLY...
