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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Good Afternoon all
Afew weeks ago, I was given a photo frame by John (Next door) and he challenged me to change it, make it different and he would do the same with one.  It measures about 8 x 8" and has a verse about Mum on it.

I stripped all the pink roses paper and verse off it and stuck some different pink paper on, cut the aperture out but I made a mess of it and had to think of a way to cover it, so I cut scalloped circle with Cuttlebug.  Then, literally, went to town on the pretty embellishments - Marianne Butterflies die (with Anita 3D glossy on) - Quilled flower - Organza Ribbon (from some card blanks I bought in The Works UK) - Corners (Papermania) - Gem and Buttons.

And of course , my gorgeous Grand Daughter Hollie Anais fast asleep in her moses basket.  So this now stands with pride of place on my coffee table in my craft room.
I will try to get a pic of Johns to show you the vast difference in our styles. And here it is---
Our styles are so different as you can see.
