About Me

My photo
Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Family Book

Good Morning All
This is the Family Photo book I used the cereal box for that I mentioned the other day HERE.
I used most of the cereal box for this but couldn't throw the smaller piece that I
 had cut off, so I made the little date book on the linked post.
Here is the start of my inspiration frm Dawns Inspirations on You Tube.
This is the front cover before I decorated.
I used lots of card and lots of LOTV and Paper Capsule Papers.
I inked the edges of the covers.
I made it 8.5" x 8.5" and the spine is about2.5"

I have tried to include lots and lots of spaces for Photos to be stored.
Lots of pockets.
It is quite heavy and will be alot heavier once I have added photos!!!1

And finally this is the message I found that was very suitable for the front.

Then I die cut some letter from foam and attached ribbon around to tie it together.
I will show pages as and when I complete them.
Thanks for visiting.

On my way home tonight, so see you tomorrow.
