Carr St Grafton

Scenic Route have a range of papers etc named Grafton, after MYYYYY home town! One of the papers is called Carr Street, which is my old street (with about ten houses in the entire street!). So I finally got my hands on some of the Grafton papers and today I did this layout about our old house. The Carr St paper is the check and palm fronds paper (double sided). I even used the label from the paper cos I couldn't throw that important piece away!

Great layout Yvette - who would have thought! I understand that they name the papers after town in the US and streets in that town. So there is that same street in that same town in the States!!!

I'm so proud that Scenic Route decided to name a range after an Australian town and googled Grafton..(I love that you emailed them to ask if thats what they did! hahah) and then even prouder when they named one after our VERY OWN STREET! It makes me happy happy to think they thought of us from way over there!
I love the layout, now I just have to find pics to do mine :)

Doesn't our garden look lush and tropical. Yes our house was perfect for us then. Now and again I daydream about redecorating it now but I suppose I shouldn't dream backwards! I should be thankful for what I have now.
Love Mummy
