Happy Birthday Mum

7 years to the day this photo was taken celebrating my mum's 60th birthday. It's hard to believe she's not with us any more and I miss her so much. There's not a day goes by that I don't think of her, and I'm very conscious that people in my life didn't have the opportunity to meet this amazing, loving woman that I called mum. So I decided to create a memory box, full of memories, stories, photos and anything really that I can look back on fondly and share with my future loved ones to remind me of the truly wonderful mother I was graced by God to have.

February the 14th

This has been the best Valentines I've ever celebrated and it all started off with a rather embarrassing delivery to work in front of my students of a beautiful bouquet of 12 red roses, chocolates and 6 helium filled balloons...If that doesn't tell me he loves me I don't know what will!!

I made this unusual card for Noel as part of my Valentines gift to him. The idea came from a class that I'd completed at Scrapbook Sisters which I worked on further at their latest crop. I love the end result. Here's a few sneaky peaks inside until I can upload all the photos.

Baby Bethany

I made a photo frame for the occasion of my neice Bethany's birth last year. I can't find where I stored the photo I took. So until come across it here is the photo of her which I altered to black and white and put inside the frame. I was so pleased with the end result that I nearly didn't want to give it away.

Creative Gifts

Here I used a range of techniques from painting, embossing, distressing and stamping on chipboard letters.
