Well, this one really had me stumped for quite a while...tried several times to let the theme take me somewhere, to no avail. Letting go of the architectural "arch", the eyebrow arch seemed the place to go, but the path was still unlcear.  The theme of the Beatles' line "close your eyes and I'll kiss you..." came out of the pre-conscious memories of my Kitty licking my eyes in the morning to wake me, most often before the alarm... I only recognized this after it developed onto the layout. The archer added into the mix was purely incidental.  But archers, cats and Kitties aside, who cannot revel in the memories of a lover's kiss upon their eyelids?  

As always, thanx for taking a peek at my page! 
peace, pam 

oh, and if you'd like to take a ride down memory lane with The Beatles and me...


  1. What a super creative take on the theme. Love it! I can see several arches on your wonderfully coloured and composed collage. And thanks for memories of my days of youth when I's just married and The Beatles in their high favour.
