Robin Jenkin's submission......

Remember Who I Am

Hey Shazza, here's my submission for July.  I had to pull out my November 2010 s.e.i. kit to find red and maroon papers!  I used an excerpt from a Maya Angelou poem called "I Almost Remember" as my journaling.  It says "... on late evenings when/quiet inhabits my garden/when grass sleeps and/streets are only paths for silent mist/I seem to remember/Smiling."  You'll also find I've used a digi image of a retro woman under a big hat, along with quite a bit of stitching that I did on this LO.  I've also added a couple of fabric flowers, and I created the red polka dot flowers with a new punch that I bought at my Stampin Up May club meeting.  Thanks for using "Octoroon Girl" by Archibald Motely this month!
Best regards,


  1. A gorgeous combination of patterned papers Robin to create that monochromatic look! The words of the poem are beautiful aren't they! SO sad to hear that you are leaving us. I wish you all the very best!

  2. Ah Robin, this is beautiful!!! I love the papers (I had to look long and hard to find red papers as well), that poem is absolutely mesmerizing and all that stitching you did looks gorgeous! I bet this page looks even more awesome IRL! I'm so sorry to hear you're stepping down Robin, I always looked forward to seeing your submissions, they always had that little something extra which made them stand out. Best of luck to you my new friend!
