Meeting Nicole

I have been writing to Nicole for over half a century now!!!!!!  This photo was taken when we met for the first time after just quarter of a century in 1983!!
We actually started writing when I was in my first year at senior school and in my French class we were asked if we would like a penfriend in Paris.  At the time I belonged to the IFL - International Friendship League and had penfriends all over the world so another one was good!!  We still correspond although we more often use the internet now and not 'snail' mail!!


I am entering the challenges at Archi-scraps and also Pixels and Paper.

Archi-scraps require Vintage and Flourishes......pearl flourishes and definitely vintage!  This is the stimulus picture.....

 

Pixels and Paper have an inspirational picture....


I have obviously gone with Paris and the fact I write to Nicole....albeit emails not paper!!

Both challenges close at the end of the month so lots of time to scrap.....and get inspiration!!!



Thanks for visiting....and please check out my challenge while you are here!!!

  2. What a brilliant page Jackie! I love all the pearl accents and the lace - makes me think of romance, making me think of France. Very special story behind it too - love that!
