We were lucky to be a part of the opening of the awesome NGV Kids Summer Festival today, the kids and I had a wonderful time crafting it up and playing with those adorable sausage dogs! 

From the NGV:

"This morning the National Gallery of Victoria kicked off its annual NGV Kids Summer Festival with a fashion parade featuring adorably attired dachshunds strutting their best fashion looks through the NGV’s Great Hall.
