Default HCE07 - Feeling A Little Nostalgic

December 26th is, er was, my grandparents anniversary. I was very close to my grandparents, and I do mean very close. This would have been their 71st anniversary. One of the last anniversary's I remember celebrating with them (yes, they have passed) was we had a round cake with yellow roses on top.

Here's my challenge to you, make something inspired from an old memory. Mine was actually inspired by a childhood one. If you can't think of one I'm including a picture of a cake very similar to the one that we had for my grandparents' anniversary and maybe that will inspire you

Here's my sample ... Dedicated to a Memory

Please use the keyword HCE07 when posting into the gallery

Thank you for this challenge. It's such a thought-provoking and meaningful one. This is the card I made, bringing back a lot of memories of my mother.
