White-brown-vintage.

My entry into this months challenge over at WW1.

I love this vintage photo of my Dad and I back in 1971, Dad was posted to Papua New Guinea during his time in the army. We spent close to two years living over there.
Independence had not been introduced then and my family had a house-boy by the name of Wow, he became like one of the family. My brothers tell me lots of stories about that time of our lives I just wish I could remember...oh well.
If you look close you can see a Santa Claus with a difference.

It took me a while to do this layout I'm not a real vintage person...i don't think??? But I did enjoy it.

Big Sigh!

Well at the end of this week, Rhys heads off to UNE....????
I've been feeling rather emotional about this.
He is the first child that is heading/living in another city...like a whole 7-8 hours away from us/me!!!

I keep having flash backs to before he headed off to school...when we use to do things like make shake and bake wedges for lunch.....
 Watching or more like peering throught his kindergarten classroom window to make sure he was fine, on his first day of school......big long sigh!


So I did this layout...sigh!

A Number challenge at Challenge Heaven.


Sigh!


Have to go
thanks for stopping for a look!
