Flashback Friday

It's been a long week with plenty of sickness in our house...again! Ella has now recovered but Zac has a terrible cough and nose to match. He's been very tired with glassy and puffy eyes. So, he's been home with me the last few days.
I'm so glad it's Friday.
We have Zac's school fete tomorrow, so that will be fun!

Onto today's flashback...
My flashback this week is from 1987, just before we moved to Qld. I had my friend Fleur staying with us(far right), me in the middle and my little sister Kellie on the left. I would have been 12 or 13.
We were out at the Portland(Vic) Lighthouse. My Pa's family(Dad's Dad) ran the Lighthouse when he was young. The house is still there and I've seen lots of pics of my Pa with the Lighthouse in the background. A beautiful place with huge seas at times. It would have been VERY cold out there in Winter time!

I've finally finished my layout for this week's Embellished Challenge. We are now in Round Four, and we had to create a layout attaching our elements to our page using stitching...2 different types of stitching.
A bit of an ask for me...and with the week I've had, I just got it up in time!

Here it is...

and a close up.

I took these pics of Ella just before Christmas last year. I loved them, and this seemed a great time to use them!

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx
