Sunday Stamper No:189. My Eyes Adored You.

I recently watched again one my fav. movies, 'The Bridges of Madison County.' I wondered then if I could put together something for Hel's challenge  inspired by the film. Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood certainly acted as if their eyes adored each other!

Sunday stamper, My Eyes Adored You.
After watching the film I decided to try to put  pieces together that a lover might have kept in a treasure box. The background paper was in my stash and I over stamped it with paperbag studio stamps and words from Tim's collection which I faded out with picket fence stain. Then an image of a woman from paperbag studio's that reminded me of an old photograph of my Mum. The piece of letter in front of blue ribbon was from my stash and I crumpled and aged it with distress ink. The pressed flower was in my garden last year and the locket was a cheapie that I brought in a sale 'just incase I needed it'. The photographs were from a cd of vintage ephemera that I recently became re-aquainted with that seemed to fit the bill! If there is anyone out there who has never seen the film, (!)  grab a box of tissues and enjoy. x
