When I was a young girl growing up my Grandparents had a greenhouse next to the outdoor toilet (do you remember those?).  Anyway that greenhouse was built during the early 1930’s when there wasn’t even a house.  Apparently my grandparents and assorted relatives used to travel from Redfern to East Hills to have picnics in the Summerhouse.  It’s amazing what you learn when you take the time to ask questions about photos that your parents have.  These photos were taken on one of those picnics.  I used Whisper White 12″ x 12″ card as the base for my page, which co-ordinates with the Natures Poem Designer Series Paper which I used to create the title using the Large Letters Framelits Dies.  I also used the same Designer Series Paper as mats for the journaling which I created on my computer.  The journaling and the mats are cut used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I printed the word family onto Whisper White card using my computer and stamped the image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set over the top using Sahara Sand ink.  I cut out the image and then attached the filigree piece.  This is cut from Shaded Spruce card using the Well Written Framelits Dies.  I also cut the image from Grapefruit Grove to create the flowers.  The image is attached to the page using dimensionals.  I will let you in on a little secret,  I do not permanently attach the journaling until I have checked it with my Dad because I find that sometimes, he might remember another name or give me a little more information to add.

I love creating these pages and guess what, it gives me another excuse to use my Designer Series Paper.  My stash is gradually disappearing, slowly but surely.

Bye for now,
