Must be love..........

Well the criteria for White With 1 this month is 

I say this is one of my favourites - & teamed with Jade's fab photo of Pete, Madi & Hayden, I certainly enjoyed my time scrapping.  I have found this love of hand stitching & with string especially, so I have popped on a few stitches here & there.  I am a bit late, but this month has been rather busy!!

Thanks for looking, hugs xx

With inspiration from wonderful Heather Jacobs.....

My beautiful daughters' 30th birthday called for something special. An album of photos.  
I purchased  a Kaisercraft 30 album, but just couldn't begin to work on it - although it is great, it was not what I wanted to make for Jade.  Then I saw a post by the amazingly talented Heather Jacobs, with her garden book & voila, there was the inspiration I needed!  With a nod of approval from Heather I set to work.

I used an old book front, a wonderful pizza box, large Basic Grey & Bo Bunny journaling tags, October Afternoon & Basic Grey gorgeous die cuts, journaling tag - thanks Jane, that I have hidden in a pocket, Kaisercraft flowers, acetate sheets, Stazon Ink, stamps, Dew Drop ink, Distress Ink - thank you Jane, ribbons & laces, Kaisercraft album rings, a selection of paper scraps, & lots of time & love, & here is a selection of pages.  A bit grungy, a bit shabby but I was very happy with the result. So was my beautiful daughter, & that was great!

Hugs to you all xxx
