Scrapbooking

I was super lucky recently - as a Jot Girl I received a package of Heidi Swapp and Becky Higgins Project Life products, to help promote their recent tour down under.  It's a long time since I've played with new products and I had a ball! 

I started with this old photo of my sisters and I with our cousins, who visited us about once a year in Grafton.  We lived so far from all our family and we LOVED having them come to stay with us!  We were really lucky we lived in an elevated house with the underneath all enclosed so there was plenty of room for two big families!



Mum said me this photo ages ago after she had stayed with my sister.  She was blow drying her hair and litle 2yo Xander watched her for a bit then raced off and came back with his toy drill, which he then used to blowdry his hair too.  TOO CUTE!



There were some Project Life page protectors in my package, and since I'm not doing Project Life I decided to use a page to display some of the photos from our hot air ballooning adventure from my 40th birthday last year.  I hand drew the title on one of the Project Life cards, inspired by chalkboard typography.
