It was Anastasia I thought of as soon as I heard that we would be visiting the Winter Palace this summer.
It's now a museum, but until 1917 it was the official residence of the rulers of Russia. Anastasia had stood in those rooms. I couldn't wait.
But I knew what would happen. I'd get there. I'd want to see everything and I would have no time for pictures. So I tried. I really did. I stood in the queue and I checked my white balance and I fiddled with the settings and I looked round and discovered The (Not So) Small One was way ahead of me. She had taken a moment to steady herself on her dad's shoulder and was already snapping.She has great pictures. Lucky someone has.
I made this page for the latest Get It Scrapped article on what Debbie calls "snuggle and separate": that's using variations in the size and density of embellishment clusters to create a bit of design tension. Definitely worth a look!
ps...don't forget: Storytelling Sunday this weekend. I'm picking a Precious with an air of mystery..
