Eileen - My Beautiful Mum


I lost my beloved Mum this morning and wanted to show you just how beautiful she was, so this is my favourite photo of her, taken when she was 21.

My DT card for Sketch & Stash has already been scheduled for Monday, but there will be no new cards for a few days as I can't concentrate on anything at the moment.
