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

18th Birthday

Good Morning All
I had my  hair cut yesterday at a local English salon that trains hairdressers and they did not charge me for it either.  I used to do this when I lived in UK, my hairdresser took on a trainee and asked me if I would let her practice on me, I was quite happy to oblige and will do the same here, so in a couple of weeks she is putting a colour on for me, I will let you know how it goes.
Todays card is an 18th using S/B Decorative Labels 22, I have only used this one afew times.

Pink, pink and more pink.

Dies Total = 46
Still got  afew to go, I didn't realise I had so many.
This is the Envelope album  that I mentioned yesterday, I made for my neighbour  Susie, it is her birthday on 27th of this month. Tomorrow I will show you the bag I made for it to go into.

Susie is like me, she had a gorgeous Grand daughter back in the UK, so I thought she might like this to store photos of her.

I put 12 envelopes in so that she could use one for each month or even one for each year, depending how many photos she has.

These days most people store photos on computers or memory sticks, as I do, but I do print some and put them in albums that I have made.

 I lined each envelope with different patterned papers and stuck all sorts of embellishments on too.
 and I used these pink shapes and lined some with acetate so she could add  onto any page as a tiny photo frame or use some as tags to write on.
