Mini album for 2013


Hello all,well looks like we have seen the end of the snow,not that we got that much here but the surrounding villages are bad by all accounts. Was lovely to have some sun today whilst outside with the children at work. Anyway have joined a challenge over at Docrafts where we upload a layout once a month based on a theme. The theme for January is Celebrations/Hopes.
front of album i made to hold the layouts

decorated base pages

January layout

This photo is of me and hubby and my three boys taken at my cousins wedding at St Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle where my boys were page boys and didnt they look cute. Dont reckon hubby has changed at all but i know i have! It was a fabulous day and we were all bused in and had to show our passes to security as only the royal family or staff are allowed there so it was a special occassion for all.
Papers used on album were 1st Edition.
Need to get cracking on my next page now,x

Thank you cards

Hi all,just a quick post to add some thank you cards i made recently,they have all got to their destinations so ok to show now. But i has taken several days as blogger not playing nicely and no button to upload so have had to download Picaso so i can upload photos that way.
All the cards are the same style but slight variations if you look closely,x


Got the idea from the magazine where i got the stamps from.
Off to nosey around your blogs now,x

Scrapbook page of Sam for DT Post

Hi all, well the theme this week over at StampnCraft is to use 12 x 12 papers to make a scrapbook page. And once i saw this sheet in the shop i knew it was the perfect base for a scrap page of my beloved dog Sam. who also happens to be very photogenic.........lol

Placed the finished page in a frame which is now hanging in my front room for all to see.

Dont forget to pop over to StampnCraft to see the other DT members projects. Been busy at work clearing up the mess from the break in and now going to be chasing the insurers up to get the door fixed. Have a great day all,x
