Age is just a number……

 

and Dear Hubby will be reaching a milestone birth number, later this year!

IMG_2006 So, naturally, I journaled about it!  It was kind of fun to try to build pages that were representational of another person, easier than doing one for yourself I think. 

This spread speaks to his love of reading, cats, Japan, his quoting Shakespeare, love of history, Rome, blue his favorite color, fishing, his stint in the Marines during the Korean Conflict and  a few more traits and interests are eluded to and a few more that could be added…..he has lived a rich and varied life.

It all started with a simple sketch I did of him one evening while he was wearing his headphones and watching television.

I like how you poised the cat on top of the open book. Of course, your collage is wonderful, as is your drawing. Great memories, I can tell!
