This is a weekend hop, but you have until Monday at midnight to finish hopping.

Lorby's World is the first blog in the hop and she is offering a special prize to one lucky person. All you have to do is hop through all the participants in the blog hop and leave a comment on each of their blogs. Lorby's World will pick a winner to be announced on Wednesday, September 12th.

If you arrived here from Connie's amazing blog you are right on track.. 

I have taken two old photos and made a collage on a clipboard.  This was a Tim Holtz kit that I got on clearance a while ago and it was so perfect for this project!!

In the top photo are my Grandparents.  The bottom photo is my Grandmother with some of her children.  My mom is the second oldest.  I think they must've been looking into the sun because they're all squinting.  LOL!
