......We remember moments......

I'm playing for the first time at PTI's August challenge!  Here is the photo inspiration:


An inspiration for sure!  I was drawn to the picnic idea, the books, the flowered tea towel, the flowers of course, and the lining of the suitcase:


supplies: cream parchment card base, papers from October Afternoon and BoBunny, Nesties Labels one, PTI Vintage Picnic and Hero Arts Antique Flower Background, Versafine onyx black ink, antique linen distress ink, markers to color flowers, twine, heart button
