Update and a layout

Happy weekend Bloggers!

August and September have been such hectic months...... between sick family members, sick myself, work overload, and life in general i have missed my precious blog.

I have been doing lots of scrapping though, with my sister, alone and with some friends - although my wish is that the scrapping on a wednesday night with my friends would be possible each week. love those gals!

Here is last week's sketche from Scrapbook Challenges, and my layout to go with them.

Sketch 311
My layout - Timeless Memories. 


My gran passed away earlier this year, at the ripe old age of 93years. My folks went to the UK and i was so pleased when my mom returned with a shoebox of photo! They are in really good condition, most with the photo information on the back. This one is a picture of my gran and my dad. there is no date on the photo but i guess my dad is about 4 years old - making the pic about 1947/1948.
This is the start of my heritage album. bliss with gorgeous graphic 45 papers and lace. The tickets are from Tim Holtz and the 'timeless memories' transparency is from Tracey Slaven - Scrapper T.
I enjoyed this sketch very much. If you play along please be sure to share your layout on the SBC Gallery.
We have a long weekend here in South Africa. Monday is Heritage Day, which means 'Braai Day' (or in other words Barbeque Day!) Lets hope the weather holds.
Have a scrappy weekend friends
