after adding the circles to the page, I decided it needed another thing to make this a special page. Sewing is one of my favorite techniques to do on my pages. Mama taught me to sew when I was little, and it is very relaxing to me. I have these wonderful flourish templates from Oriental trading, and too many bobbins of DMC floss to count. As a finishing touch, I added pearls to the ends of the flourishes. My oldest sister did the journaling on this page since it was a few years before I was born.
