i love to hear your stories

Another page made with the SC Metropolitan kit, the colours in it are amazing, i think this is my favourite kit since Granny's Cupboard and i am kicking myself for not picking up extra SC paper, i am in love with the Sassafras exclusives, and i've nearly used up all the entwined blooms too!


i was inspired to make this before Christmas after spending the afternoon with my Nan, but the only photo i could find of us together is from 2008 (check out the blonde hair!). i really enjoy spending time with her, she makes me laugh so much! She entertains me with stories about my mum & her siblings when they were growing up, about the early days when her & granddad started going out, and about growing up in the war as the oldest of 10 kids! She has lived a rich life & i love to hear about it & i know she will not be around forever to tell me stories, so the time i do get to spend with her is cherished.
