Bank Holiday Labour of Love!!!



Hi all hope you are having a good bank holiday today!!! I spent the day making an explosion box for my Mum and Dad to give their brother and sister for their golden wedding..now as you may or may not know I have made several of these ..but this one just didn't want to come together today!!!



This is the first layer the little girl in the photo is ME two days before my 2nd birthday Ahhh with my beloved grandmother who has been gone 21yrs in September but I remember her like it was yesterday.


This is the second layer and guess what colour the bridesmaids were wearing yeah lilac and no I don't remember I had to ask!!


This is my auntie and uncle nearly 50 years ago!!


I am off to get something to eat now hope to have a go at Jo's blog candy challenge later.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)
