Sandringham House

Good morning all. How nice to see some sunshine this week!

I'm off to Newcastle to see Meatloaf tonight....can't wait - I'll probably be hoarse tomorrow though!

A layout today using an old family photograph.

Using True Blue, a kit from Daisy Trail (I'm blaming Edna for inciting me to buy this kit as she showcased it so well!) and created in Craft Artist. The photo ( my Mum and Dad, Aunt and Uncle and 3 cousins) was taken at the gates of Sandringham House many moons ago.

Challenges entered:
