Memories - SCD did you get on with the torso last week?
Did you  :)
or did you :( ?
This week it is still the torso shape and the prompt by my SCD teamie Laura is Memories.
I seem to get the Barbara Streisand song running through my brain whenever I hear the word here is my torso.

Background swooshed with DI's peeled paint/antique linen/pumice stone then stamped the  Paperartsy couple in archival black and the fringed material (again Paperartsy) with a combo of teal/celadon/chianti cats eye pigment ink...the word yearning is Distress embossed with antique linen and the word fragments embossed with Stamp n Stuff pewter
.........bit of frayed ribbon and a gorgeous little brad from Kaiser that has been waiting for just the right home.
Powerful stuff memories!!! Most of mine are of good times with Pip (perhaps that is what makes it so hard?)
....I can be getting along with life well and the next minute........boom!
.....the tiniest thing can set me off on a weepie!!!

I hope you are going to take the plunge and join in this week over at
Something Completely Different. :)
Thanks for looking and happy stamping!
xoxo Sioux
