The photo is of my sons footsteps on a beach we visited while on vacation in Tenerife, and the little pieces of sea shells on the bottom of the photo and in the mesh, were collected at the same beach. The photo was taken on Christmas eve, my son was only two years old at the time and was having so much fun running along the waters edge. It was quite special for us to celebrate Christmas in a place with beaches and palm trees, as we are used to tons of snow and freezing temperatures where we live.
The poem was written by my boyfriend, and reads:
Along the waters edge you ran
For no other reason than that you can
Your footsteps edged in fickle sand
Erased by surf and tide on land
A fleeting moment caught in time
An image frozen so sublime
Where your path might go from here
We know not but have no fear
Just look behind you and you will see
Two nervous nellies follows thee
The papers are from I Lowe Scrap, Paperhouse and Panduro. I've used some rubons from Kaiser Craft and the mesh and little rope are from a local shop here in Norway.
