Gold Reef City Layout

Hello Everyone

On the first weekend, this past December, my Father treated us all to a day at Gold Reef City.
This is an old mining town that has been turned into a historic site, along with theme parks for the kids and lots of entertainment.

The Carnival Collection was the perfect collection for this page.

It's a fun little page to remember this fun day.

To tell you a little bit more about the story, the kids were soooo excited about going on the rides and couldn't wait to get started.  It soon became apparent to us and Joe though, that he might not be able to go on some of the rides.  He had to be at least 1.3m tall to be allowed on the bigger rides and he was 1.25m.  We tried everything and to no here is a very sad little face.

So Joe and I made our way to the kiddies area, where they had kiddies rides and he certainly went from rather sad to very happy and of course...his Mother went with him on all his rides! ;-)
But the very last ride was with his Dad and the photo is the one I scrapped above.

I was so pleased, at the end of the day, have a very happy little chap.

I used the stars stencil from the stickable stencils and had some fun around the edges of my paper.
I also added the balloons, which are always such a fun element.

I used some twine to be the balloon strings.

We were pooped at the end of the day but we all had an amazing and fun day together! ;-)

Thanks for coming past to say hello!
I hope you have a super day!
