Off To Work With Grandma

Today we spent the day at "Grandma's Work", Sovereign Hill
The girls got to dress up too and went to "work" having a grand time :)

Tomorrow we are off to the big smoke for some mandatory shopping :)

Will leave you with some pages that I made for Karen’s Scrappin’ Kupboard

This one was for Dave's Mum, so journal free, and was taken when Dave's Grandparents took them to Sovereign Hill when they were young and over in Victoria on holidays with their parents

A layout about the brandy snaps Dave made a while back

Elizabeth and I :)


Used paint to adhere the alpha stickers


and painted the dragonfly with paint and stickles


and this one of Dave and his baseball team (around 1987 he thought)


used some smaller and used them as a mask to glimmer mist over the top


Pin It Now!
