Sweet Treats!

I have had soooo much fun playing with the images I've been sent....LOVE this one from Elisabeth Bell...she is a real cutie!! More beautiful papers from My Minds Eye...a simple embellishment...and it's done!! This one started off as a sketch...just didn't end up that way!!

I started helping my mum to create a scrapbook September 2006 (yes, 2006!!) we worked away once a week on it until the beginning of December that same year then we took a break for christmas.....well another christmas came and went in our break...finally a month or so ago I got back to it...and last night I completed it...yaaaayyyy!! I mean completely finished....it looks well....it contains lots of memorabilia that my Gran had collected over the years and mum didn't want to part with...we've also included a little family history...feels good to be "done"....now mum can enjoy "showing it off" to all her aunts etc who helped with the info!!

During that "break" I did make some other little projects with the things Gran collected...she had approximately 40 years of postcards friends and family had sent her from all over the world.....I found one my Granda had sent to her when he was working away from home when I was only a few months old (yep that was a day or so ago!!)....that might have caused a little tiny tear...!

Just before I finish...another very generous blog candy is being offered by Tanja in celebration of her reaching 5000 hits....well done Tanja!! bx
