Saturday's class and crop in Le Cheile Donnycarney
We had a great day today in Donnycarney today and the theme of this class was about something we all know about - age and getting old ;-)I chose to scrap my beloved grampa who lived to be 90 and he was such a great character. The journaling reads 'Who old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?' and I love the concept of this as it allows us to be who we are supposed to be and not what our age dictates us to be...afterall age is just a number -right?
The story behind this layout is based on a conversation I had with my darling grampa when I was a child. He told me that a neighbour of his was complimenting him on how well he was for his age. The conversation went along something like this;
Neighbour 'So how old are you Mr X'
Grampa 'Well how old do you think I am?'
Neighbour 'Oh I wouldn't like to say!'
Grampa 'Well I'm 56' (note he was actually 70 at the time!)
Me ....'So Grampa did you tell her the truth?'
Grampa 'I certainly did not!'
