All about Love

Hi All. Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts where today I seem to be on a Love Theme though it was quite by accident that happened. 

At Art Journal Journey the challenge for January is chosen and hosted by Erika. The theme is Every Journal Page tells a story.

I made this page digitally and it shows my husband and a dream scene that tells a real love story of when we first started going out together. We were in his car one cold and frosty morning and he said he wanted me to listen to a tape he had just bought. Yes we still used tapes in cars in those days!
I listened and it was so beautiful I cried with happiness. The words on my collage are part of the song and if you want to listen to it all it is here  on youtube. It still send tingles down my spine when I listen to it.

Moo Mania and More have love as their theme for the next two weeks as well and you can make anything you like that follows the theme

If Music be the Food of Love, Play On

It just so happens that Digitally Sweet has Music as their theme for this month so both of these will fit in-such a happy coincidence for me.

Love Chrissie xx


  1. A love story that has such a happy feel to it. I also remember tapes. In fact, I still have some. So happy for you that you have stayed in love all these years. It takes a definite bond for that. Both your entries show that, too. They are fantastic, as are your digital skills.

  2. Great that your personal love story turned out so well, you were certainly made for each other! Lovely pieces for AJJ and for Moo, you have been busy. Have a lovely day, hugs, Valerie

  3. Beautiful work Chrissie and so romantic.
