Let me start by apologising for being "off the radar" a little at the moment. I have a big quilting project on the go at the moment which needs to be finished by the 29th!! Unfortunately due to being poorly last month it has put me behind schedule a little! Don't fret, I will be sharing it once it is finished!
Well today is Tuesday. Time to share a scrapbooking project with you as well as join in with Elizabeth and Bleubeard with a cuppa, or in my case a glass of squash.
On Saturday my Buddy and I had our monthly Scrapping Day so, true to my aim this year, I finished a project which I am sharing with you today. Yeay!!!
Here it is....
Today I am drinking some blackberry and apple squash. It was dinner time when I took the photos, hence they are not very good as I had to use the flash. Apologies for that.
I made this mini album for my Mum in Law for her 80th Birthday. We were planning to take her to Longleat as her present. I made her a "ticket", album and we bought her a digital camera. Unfortunately soon after her birthday her sister died and a few bouts of ill health, so we only got to take her to Longleat last August, on her 83rd birthday.
As far as she knew it was only Hubby, myself and her that were going. However I had managed to arrange for her niece, her hubby and daughter to meet us at Longleat, which was a lovely surprise for her.
Luckily we were all able to fit into Helen's car rather than ours. It would have been a tight squeeze! Poor Mia sat in the rumble seat in the boot!
The weather was glorious and altogether we had a lovely day.
It took some time to locate the album for me to have back to put the photos in (none of which MIL took! Anyone want a brand new unused 14 megapixel camera?) and the album has been waiting for me to print photos and put this together.
Ta dah! Finished. I shall let MIL have it back now and another job done and dusted out of my room.
So then. Why not pop over with a cuppa to Elizabeth's blog and share what you are up to today? I am also popping over to the Snippets Playground as I most probably used snippets at the time I made the album, though it was before I was blogging. I certainly used Snippets to mount the photos on before adhering them into the album.
Thanks for calling by and I will visit you if you call by as soon as I can.
