The letter from the latest Alpha Challenge at the Craft Barn found here
is the letter 'K'. I have chosen the world Kremlin. Such an exciting adventure for one Mom and her talented daughter.
My smart and talented daughter Stacy. Behind her is St. Basil's Cathedral and to the right is the Kremlin.
What wonderful memories - Stacy and Mom in Red Square.
A little explanation is in order. Some twenty years ago, my daughter taught English to high school students in Poland while serving in the Peace Corps. At the end of her two years, I went and stayed with her in Ulanow, the village she taught in. We then spent several weeks touring Poland and other Eastern European countries. For two women alone, we had one exciting adventure!!! I will never forget it. Thanks Stacy.
I appreciate your visit and love your comments!!!!!
Wow, looks like you had a great time there. Kremlin is a good choice of word! Great pages, Sandy! How are the goats doing? Hugs, Valerie
What a wonderful, unforgettable adventure, Sandy!!!! Beautiful pictures and your pages are absolutely spectacular!

OMG...I thought the visit to the nail salon was awesome with my kiddo..LOL, but RUSSIA.....WOW! The letter K is PERFECT for this page you've created I just love it and the two of you are adorable in your pictures! :)
You clever person to use the Challenge K as you did. Great use of the challenge to showcase a wonderful memory. So enjoyed the pictures as I've always heard that the Kremlin area is most scenic. Doubt I shall ever see in person. Now you can revisit anytime you choose, by looking at your lovely journaling. TFS & you DO have a talented daughter. (must take after her Mom, yes?) Hugs
