We do not remember days Wall Hanging

Hi Y'all, Monica here today. I love the saying used in this wall hanging, "We do not remember days, We remember moments." Words close to my heart.
My husband often works jobs at the coast or close enough for easy visits; meanwhile I'm here at home in the mountains. We've been saying for years we need to take a vacation to the beach. In July David got a job close to home and a couple of weeks later he called me on Friday at lunch and said "Let's just stop trying to plan a trip and just go." So we made a quick trip to Tybee Island, Savannah, GA. The picture used in this wall hanging was taken after dinner Saturday evening. There was a thunderstorm inland that was creating some beautiful colors in the sunset. Right after this shot was taken there were two rainbows visible in one area and another further off to the right. Beautiful memory of that moment.

The saying was cut apart and stamped on pieces of vellum with Brilliance Graphite Black ink. I used Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles and Grand Labels Four to cut the layers. Cardstock is Bazzill Bling, medium and dark blue.  The sheen of the cardstock makes getting a good picture beyond my capabilities. Trust me, the colors are much deeper and prettier than this picture shows.  The shells were attached with stacked pop-dots.

The shell necklace is a treasure from our past, a trinket David bought me at a boardwalk fair at Balboa Island, Newport, CA, shortly after we met in 1976. Moments! It took some digging to find this but I think it really ties things together. Goodness, has it really been 36 years?!!

Thanks for looking.
Hugs, Monica

  3. This is lovely Monica. Thanks for sharing an unforgettable moment. I don't know about you, but I'm always glad to use a momento (like the necklace) so it's not just sitting in a drawer!
