"Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose" Author unknown

Those of you who remember the Wonder Years on TV may remember this beautiful saying? It is a sentiment that we all relate to, especially being scrapbookers!

The story of Harvey Horse holds close to me one of those lovely memories, that up until now I've never really got round to scrapping... that is until the ScrapaGoGo June kit 'Things to make and do' came along! With its vintage quirkiness, older photographs, as well as new images are simply perfect to use with it!

It was taken on the same holiday as my previous post titled "my favourite ever photograph".

Browsing through a shop in Bridlington, probably on yet another rainy day, we came across a book called Harvey Horse, so it was an inevitable purchase!

Nina wanted that story read every night, luckily it was only a few pages long with a large cut out centre for a squeaky toy horse that was fixed to the back cover, so to read back to back really only took five minutes!

So I'm delving deep into my archive photo library, and by printing in black and white the grainy almost soft focus imagery becomes a bit more 21st century!
