when i grow up

July 21, 2006

… is the theme at blue bazaar this week. i had a lot of fun creating this one & it was great to use some of the KI products i’ve been hoarding!


materials: paper & stickers from KI memories hopeful line, heidi swapp chipboard letters

journalling is under the photos at the top … the theme made me think about friends who’ve bought houses & how i’ve always said: "i’d like to own a house when i grow up!" … i used to think we’re still young, we’ve got plenty of time to own a home … but as the years tick by & real estate prices have soared – the dream of owning a house is becoming elusive & i worry that we’ll never be able to afford it. what is happening to the great australian dream of owning your own home??

what are your thoughts?



  1. this is such a great idea – I really need to add it to my ‘to do’ list of LO’s.

  2. Gotta say…if being a grown up means having a mortgage… send me back to childhood please! Gotta say Charleigh, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be! *g*
