A special quote.

I don't often create a layout that simply uses a quote. I much prefer to journal with a story or include my feelings or even use a question/answer style .... but I've had this quote for ages, maybe years now in my little special book and it's one that I really wanted to use one day. It felt right for this layout.

Quote reads:
To the outside world we all grow old.
But not to brothers and sisters.
We know each other as we always were.
We know each other's hearts.
We share private family jokes.
We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys.
We live outside the touch of time.
by Clara Ortega.

Paper is from Autumn Leaves and so is that cute flower embellishment.
Birdie is from American Crafts.
Alpha stickers are Making Memories.
