USA part2

Thought I would share this photo of Linda and I, this special woman I'm so proud to call "My Sis" (adopted Sister through choice). I’m so proud of her she inspires me everyday; Linda is a 10 year survivor of ovarian cancer. It is impossible for her to travel to Australia due to her health, so I will visit her every year I so wish it could be more. We make the most of every visit and every minute together.The photos below are the last pictures of the book I made for Linda.





This picture of Uncle Dan and this beautiful frame.I mounted on aged copper mesh.




Love this picture of Nellie such a beautiful looking lady below.



I must say I do love this page of Linda's Dad.


I used spotted mica on this picture of Linda's dad and his beloved motorbike.

In the folder are old documents from Linda's family.

I treasure my book, but treasure Jen even more. I wish I could whisk she and her family away to North Idaho, USA! In November it will be 12 years of surviving advanced ovarian cancer!
