The album was a hit!

Bernadette was so excited by her early birthday present. I received hugs and kisses for the album.The 3 kids all had a look at themselves in the album and remarked on their photos.I think it will be a treasured memory jogger for them

Children's album done.

I've been working on an album for over 3 years for my nephew's wife,Bernadette.It features layouts of her 3 children going back over their young lives. Many of them appear on here. I plan to present the album to her later this week.I feel a real sense of achievement for actually finishing it.I'm sure for her there will be lots ofhappy memories,especially as the children grow up.

Puzzle scrapping

I've had this saying from Mark Twain for ages and it inspired me to do a layout of Christopher digging in the garden.The Sassafrass Lass paper features hedgehogs, which go with the digging theme, so I decided to use them as a feature.I hand cut the star from chipboard and am pleased with how it looks.I'm not sure that I particularly like hacking photos into pieces like this, I prefer them whole!Also the blobs of paint were a requirement but could have been left out too.
Only just over a week until I go away now and getting more excited by the day.

Here's my white with one entry for this month. I used a poem I've had for ages about hugs.Jonathan is a good big brother and very protective of Annabelle.She loves him too.
The layout is a combination of chatterbox,Basic Grey and Sassafrass lass papers.

A scrapboxx win

I entered a layout on Scrapboxx. The theme was "all you need is love". I discovered today that I have won a book of me kit worth approximately $35. It will come in very handy as it is already co-ordinated I won't have to run around searching for matching bits.
Still haven't done of the scrapbooking I promised myself but hopefully will make a start in the next few days.

April challenges

It is time to get messy at Puzzle scraps which involves 9 squares a star an arrow and paint.White with one wants coral and journalling. A2z scraplets has a blind challenge.Luckily I have a few days free!

I managed to take some great photos from a recent photo shoot of my great niece and nephews.

Hopefully I can scrap them well.

My trip to Europe is only 20 days away and to say I'm excited is an understatement.
