More Paper Than Shoes Challenge- Rusty Bucket

So the September challenge projects have been posted on the More Paper Than Shoes blog! There are so many great projects created by my fellow Design Team artist! Here was the challenge:

Theme: Rustic (Rusty Bucket)
Supplies: Metal and Twine (any kind of rope).
Surface: ANY
Technique:Torn paper

When I was reading about the challenge the first thing I thought about was my grandparents. They have been in my life since the day I was born and are a huge part of me. Coming from a family of divorced parents, I wanted to pay tribute to them, their marriage, and the great example that they have set for me and my brothers. They married in 1954 for a total of 56 years! So, thanks Grandma Ruth and Grandpa Jim for always being there for me and for showing me what love is all about!

what a beautiful story...and I fell in love w/ those birds in your piece this morning, even before I read the story! The story of your grandparents makes the piece even MORE beautiful :)
