Creative Scrappers 191

Wow, it always amazes me how quick the weeks roll around, already we are half way through January and before we know it kids will back to school here in Australia and normality will settle back in...YAY to that.

I was a little unsure what to do with this Sketch when I first saw it, but once I started working on it it just seemed to flow.  The picture is of my Dad and his Sister when they were little, there wasn't much I could journal on this photo other than how different they both are.

I am totally loving my new Spellbinders Grand Calibur that I received for my Birthday and the Grand Circle nestablities, so don't be surprised if you see more circles on my pages.
I love the new October Afternoon Farmhouse Range and thought it would work perfectly for this photo.
Products Used - Prima Ledger Paper and Alphabets, Kaiser Diecut paper and resin blooms, October Afternoon papers, Clothes Lines, Guest Room and Sunday Diner, Grand Circle Nestabilities, Websters Alphabets,Maya Rd Pin and perfect pearls. Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave are always welcome. Hope to see you over at Creative Sketches.
