My First LO for 2009

I wasn't quite sure at first what to do with my LO for the new Kaya Challenge at PS. I didn't know what memorabilia I should use until I remembered my grandpa. He's not really my grandfather by blood since he's my step-father's dad but he treated me like his own grand daughter. After he died, we discovered his hidden treasure from his bedroom. That's where I got the inspiration for my 1st LO for 2009.
Journaling Reads: A few days after lolo Pete died, we were all surprised to find a box in his room where he kept his "hidden treasures". Inside the box were cards that people gave him and even the money they gave were still in the cards. Dad gave us these money which are no longer in circulation. You would think they're still new because they're still crisp, but when you look at the year printed on them, you'll see they're from 1949!

Materials Used:
PPs & Stamp- Fancy Pants, CS-Bazill Basics, Rub-ons- Craft Express, Ink-Whispers, Flowers- Prima, Alpha Stickers-Misc.- lace, string of pearls, acetate, gold thread, button

Techniques Used:

Distressing, Stamping & Stitching ( I stitched an acetate on the PP to create pockets for the pics & the money)
