This first lo is a lo i did of my own in between classes its of my nephew and he is dinosaur mad so these ne papers i bought were perfect for this photo

This next lo is what i did for the sketch challenge we were all given its my baby nephew and the title is what my sis calls him little moo bear i used a srahs card kit think its januarys love the papers

This one was lianne mawers class was unsure of what photo to use so went wwith this one of my sis and her partner had a black and white version too but went with the colour pic as it fit better
This one was natalie grants class used pics of my nephew playing golf and called it a owl in one lol really like these papers and the little felt owl
The next is racheal elliots class lots of distressing but really enjoyed doing this one the pic is of me and my siblings with my mum which was taken 2 months after my dad died in 2009

Another lo

I did this lo a couple of weeks ago used sarahs cards october kit (i think) crate paper restoration love this range and wanted to do it justice i used a pic of my dd which was taken just after she had her head stitched up she was so brave throughout it all hence the title. I need to do some journalling on it but not sure how to go about it yet. the pic looks a bit wonky but it is straight just the angle its taken at.

I havnt done much more scrapping since finishing the album i did for my neighbour i dont have much photos and what i do have i am saving to take on retreat with me in a few weeks which i am so looking forward to :-)

My neighbour asked me to make an album for her for her parents for xmas but cos of my ill health never got to finish it so i have now completed it here it is all grouped together using picasa instead of posting them individually i used an old a4 album or just under a4 as had to cut a bit off each page she was chuffed to bits with it and paid me for doing it so its my first sale :-)
