Family Wedding

Yesterday we went to Emily and Katie's Aunty Michelle and Uncle David's wedding. The girls looked lovely in their matching outfits. Cannot wait to develop the photos and get scrapbooking.

They were a bit overwhelmed with it all, what with the heat, and time it took to take photos and the ceremony, they both fell asleep on the way home.

Congratulations David and Michelle.

My friend Joanne gave me a pack of glittery swirls and I thought they would go well with these photos of Caesar, my son's Bull Mastif. He started off really small, the runt of the litter, but boy did he grow.

Caesar is devoted to David, who spoils him rotten!

Rainy days

I just love rainy days, and we have had plenty of those this week. Instead of working in my allotment, rain days mean I can concentrate on crafting. I have just finished this book for my youngest grand-daughter for her First Christmas.

I made the book over a year ago at a workshop Lynne ran at Craft Den, but have only just got around to using it for a project.

Some of the pages have a pocket half way down for extra photos and others have a pull out tag for journalling.

I really enjoyed making this book and hope Katie will enjoy looking at it when she is older.

Chatsworth Day Out

I had a lovely day out with my daughter, Beth, and grand-daughters Emily and Katie. I made a memory book from a childs board reading book. I seperated the pages and covered them with scrapbooking paper. I added a small front cover for the title of the book. Each page has a semi circle tab sticking out. I used the Cricut machine to cut out daisies, which match the background paper, and used these to decorate the pages.

The final page in the book shows a picure which Emily coloured in while we were waiting for our lunch.

I now have a lovely book to commemorate a wonderful day out.
