Xmas Album

Decided to have a go at making my own word album, quite pleased with the end result. Cut the shapes in mountboard and covered with pp, inked the edges. Bound with the BIA and lots of ribbons.

Pics show the front, back and then the album slightly open.

Old Photos

These pics were taken when dd1 and her friend decided to camp out in the garden overnight. They didn't last the whole night outside, too many noises!

Stuck down at last!

8x8 lo showing beautiful blue eyes of dgs.

This lo shows dgs happy smile!

This pic is of my niece swimming with sharks in Sydney, her birthday treat! Photo wasn't brilliant but it was murky in there!

Finished at Last

This baby lo of dd1 was started a while ago as a challenge on UKS, at last I have finished it! Had to use 2 shades of pink, 2 pics, flowers and ribbon.

Acrylic Album

This little acrylic album was made from a kit for the UKS cyber crop. As yet it has no pics in it! Was great fun to make!

Pink Car

These photos of dgs were taken at Beale park, in the area of Little Tikes World. It was very busy in there and the first empty toy he came across was a pink car which he promptly climbed in to, much to his father's disgust! You learn early to grab what toys are available!
I have used the new Blonde Moments papers and tried to convey the hectic atmosphere in the area, kids everywhere, running and driving!

Bucklars Hard

A double lo of pics taken on a weekend break at Bucklars Hard. I have overlapped the pics mainly to hide the date stamping on them which is why they both go the same way.

Paper Clips

Gill on our UKS team suggested a challenge using paper clips on a lo, so here is my version. Used the paper clips with flowers attached and then bead letters in the middle to spell out the name. Really old pics of me, and althought the pics are b/w the colours remind me of the dress.

This is the lo I did for the UKS cc class, Dotty About You.

I didn't have enough buttons so drew dots instead and used a few Halloween eyelets.

Mum and Girls

One of the last photos of my Mum, taken when my sister and her dh came for a visit. Somehow dd3 crept in too!

Little book

I decided to experiment and make this little book. It is just 4 circles, folded and stuck in such a way that it gives 3 pouches for tags.
It tells the story of a day trip to Bognor Regis with my parents, Grandma and sister in 1963. The pics are small and were taken on my little camera.

Showing the pouches for tags.

I have included a lot of journalling recalling childhood memories.

Showing the pages unfolded.

Front and back covers. Lots of ribbons.

Wacky Niece

This pic, taken over 10 years ago, is of my wacky French niece! She is so lovely, always happy and laughing! Used up scraps of pp for this lo. It is more orange than the photo shows, must get a new camera!

Old Photos

These photos of my in-laws were taken in the 1930's. They are rather damaged but I think that adds to their charm. They will now be preserved in an album for future generations to look at.

Two More Quickies

Pic taken at picnic for my 60th birthday. Shows all the kids and their partners and grandchildren, and dh and me too!

This pic was dd3 at about 7 years old. Seem to remember the blue plastic ears were some charity thing.

Apologies for the pics, my camera is broken and these are taken with another one!

Blue page for my colour album. Shows the pool at sil's house in Bordeaux where we have lovely holidays!
