METHODS PLAYGROUND and SCRAPxSCRAP

SCRAPxSCRAP (Japan) #24
Check out the criteria here.  I've used 5 photos of the girls walking to the car with all their books on the first day of school for the year (in Feb).  Paige was so happy to get back after our Summer break to socialise with all her friends again.....Hannah's face says it all.  She didnt want the holidays to end and so unsure of going into Year 10.   I've used some Hambly's Brick Transparency and drew the boarder and added some bricks as well.



METHODS PLAYGROUND #67
This is a fabulous challenge!!  I didnt have any page protectors already divided into pockets...so I just used the sewing machine (my modern day one!!!)  We inherited dh's granmothers little ole Singer Tredle Sewing Machine and in its drawers were sooo many gorgeous bits and pieces all ready and needing to be scrapped.  This is the perfect way!!!   What a lovely momento for my girls of their loved 'Nana Great'.
.

I seriously need to get off this computer and do some housework!!!!!
