  1. Wow, Linda Tok, you did it again, your ancestor scrap booking page is so stunning – and inspiring. *Smile* We have rose printed paper… and my mom just gave me my gran’s wedding photo’s from the early, early 1900s …they are amazing, so I really like what you’ve done and will be inspired. *Grin* I have discovered a less expensive alternative to scrap booking sheets, which are very expensive as they are all imported to South Africa… and that’s wrapping paper. LOL Thank-you so much for sharing, I’m sure is takes time to take the photos and publish… you are a treasure of inspiration. Thanks so much, *Mwah* Mands


    • I’m so glad 😉

      I used acid free printer paper, on which I printed the music, then glued taht onto the butterflies shapes and added some bling! I got the Bindis a few months ago at the thrift-store, aren’t they great ?


  2. They do look great, although I’m not sure the ancestors like being there, judging from their expressions!

    That distressing video is amazing. It didn’t distress me at all.


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
