thanks ladies....
sorry about the quality of upload photograph...
we were in the midst of cyclone ellie up here in the North....and thank you for your comments on the weaving...
i first did it as part of my layouts when i started scrapping in 1999, just after my mum and dad both passed away in that year...within 4 months of each other....

My partner Mark,,,had a motorbike accident, at 17...and is now a c5 quad...
and he attended the local little country school at Walkamin for all his Primary school years....


and after his accident...the principal and his wife approached him to be teacher aide, admin officer for the school...
and because most school rooms,library etc..were upstairs...the local community built a ramp for Mark to get upstairs in his wheelchair...
and now the school is celebrating 50 years...and he and i are doing most of the organising for that event in April....
he has been a part of many people's lives...
past friends, school mates...teachers, staff, students,,
and me too...and my family...
i was lucky to get a job there,,and met Mark....


so I am also planning his surprise 50th birthday....in June...
so this was another opportunity to do one more layout...
for his "this is your life album" and presentation....for the evening....


thanks ladies....
cheers,...
