Bird New Word IS......................

Well Hello There!

 Have you seen that the Bird has a new Word????
 The word for this Fortnight is MEMORY.....
 (or a variation of the word, such as memories)

For Me!!

Memory is of my Dear Brother Dwayne, who was taken too 


 He was in a Motorbike Accident in December 2007

He is Missed Every single day.........

So this is my Layout!!!!

I choose the Teresa Collins - On The Edge paper with the Guitars as

 Dwayne Enjoyed Playing the Guitar & it was a REAL JOY  

listening to him play it......... 

Also I've been So Inspired by the way Chantelle  has done a few Layouts where she has Printed photo's on Vellum...
SO my photo is on Vellum!!
Now for some Close UPS........

Products Used here:
Teresa Collins - On the Edge paper,
Glitz Design - Scarlett Glitzers,
Laced with Grace - What Not Diecuts,
American Craft - Keyhole,
Prima - Flowers & Pearls,
