A House is Made with Walls and Beams...

(click to see the details)

This one is my favorite. I included lots of memories and bits and pieces from people I love.


See, told you. Those pics on the left? 
My first day of school way back in '79.


Brayden's birthday cake request and a letter from my Nana.


Note from my dad-in-law and the photo strip I printed for our 16th anniversary:


And here is a birthday message from dear friends of ours, mixed in with my quote.


This makes me really happy.

Is this all off the back of that class? And do you mind me nicking some of these for the newsletter? And can I steal that quote? And will you come to England and do a class? And..and... that is all for now!
