Stuck?! Sketches DT - 1st September 2017 "Let life surprise you"

Welome back to my blog today where I'm sharing a DT page for

I used Kaisercraft Indigo Skies Collection
The red hessian heart and the denim arrow are from Charms Creations.
The little puffy sticker house is an oldie from Amy Tangerine
The flairs are by Studio Fourteen40
Love the new Tim Holtz Oxides - the background ink is called "Broken China"
The enamel dots are by Doodlebug

The journalling is on the back of the page and it reads:-

I love the feeling of happiness and unity captured here with your Mummy, Daddy 
and your beautiful big Brother, in a rare family photo.  
We were celebrating Christmas in Melbourne with the extended family 
on a stinking hot day - it was about 42C.  That didn't stop us enjoying all the traditional Christmas food though, including hot Plum pudding.
You and your cousins enjoyed jumping in and out of a paddling pool 
with Alfie the dog joining in the fun.  
Love Granny
