Me & Dziadek



Here is one of my favorite photos of my dad and my nephew walking side by side.   I was so happy sister captured the moment.   I was rushing to get my camera ready and by the time I went to snap the picture, the moment was gone and they were sitting down.

Most of the products are not SU, the only ones that are the new enamel dots, the card stock, the chevron ribbon and baker's twine and the die cut of the ampersand sign.
