My Favorite Song

This week's link party at Cindy Adkins blog, I Owe it All to Him, is "What is your favorite song?" This was easy for me. Even though I have a new favorite song every time I turn on the radio, there is only one song that I have loved since I was a little girl and that's Amazing Grace. 

A matter of fact I knew the moment that I entered Cindy's blog, I Owe It All To Him, that it was going to be a blog that I would be following. I instantly felt connected in some way, simply because  Amazing Grace was playing. I had previously added a video of  LeeAnn Rhymes singing Amazing Grace to the right, on my sidebar, however it was causing my blog to download very slow. So, I have included the link so that you may watch the video on YouTube. She sings it absolutely beautifully!
My grandmother's name was Grace. She's no longer with us, however, when I hear Amazing Grace it takes me back to memories of her. I made the tag pictured above for this link party today. I copied an old black and white photo of her and I onto mulberry paper and then added it to the tag.

I didn't want to add a lot of embellishments because I  wanted to leave as much of the picture exposed as I could. So I chose to simply add a few layered flowers with brads, a black bow and a small cross.

There were a few more photos that I had copied onto the mulberry paper at the same time as the one I used for the tag, so I have decided to use them along with this tag to make a scrapbook layout. I will be sure to share the pages when I have them completed.

I also want to take this opportunity to say Thank You to Cindy for hosting these fun and thought provoking link parties. I appreciate all of the hard work and dedication it takes to continue to put these together week after week.
