Around the World Challenge #2: Holland

Here is Vicky's inspiration picture for her current challenge.

And here is my take on it. 

I have such fond memories of Holland, and Vicky's picture brought them all flooding back.  Here is a photo taken in 1979 of our boys in a tulip field.
It only seems like yesterday; can you believe they're both in their 30's now??

  12. Love how your inspiration turned into a lovely card! Just recently we walked past huge windmills in the countryside - no tulips but beautiful meadow flowers everywhere. Holland is so beautiful!
