I did this LO to celebrate my recent retirement. It was great going to the park on a  morning when I would have been working.

I won this stamp from Docrafts FB page. They are really fun to colour and are perfect for watercolours or pencils

new folders

I recently bought these gorgeous Couture Creations folders and have been trying them out. The first two are embossed onto watercolour paper, and the other 2 are done on heavy foil cut from a foil food container. I have used watercolours and pens on the first two, and alcohol inks and permanent markers on the foil. I also added stickles onto the wings.

Having added a very old LO of my daughter, this one is more recent, only about 12 years ago, give or take a year, lol.

Sunny and Claire

This LO is a 12x12 of my daugter age 3 and our much loved Sheltie, Sunny. He lived up to his name and was the sweetest of dogs.The pic is about 29 years ago , so unbelievable that it  has gone so fast. Getting old.

wedding LO.

Having done the boxed frame wedding LO put me in the mood to do another for a 12x12 album.Its a shame the pics are a,, black and white but I like these colours together. My dress was purple so that was the reason for choosing the main colour.

Wedding pic. LO.

I was given a 12x12 box frame (from The Range) and was finally inspired to fill it with this LO. I was glad to have found a way to display the roses without flattening them.The wedding was  1971. We eloped as we were finding it difficult to see each other as we lived far apart.( Scotland and London). We had tried to tell our folks that we didn't want a big white wedding, a long time in the future. They thought we were too young at 19. We are now 60 and still love oneanother.
