Happy, wonderful You – Scrap Page

I am finally starting to recover from this very nasty ‘flu, although I have to admit today that the windy weather and dust clouds over Canberra are probably not helping my cough.  But at least I am feeling well enough to sit and do some scrapping 🙂  So, I have two posts for you today, both of them scrap pages!

The first are some photos of my gorgeous smiley little boy, Jamie.  These photos were taken in Nov 2008.  This page came together really easily, and I like the simplicity of it.

Something for Spring

Today’s post is a card I made for a friend of the family.  I also made a matching box with some little love notes inside.  The colours just remind me of the beautiful blossoms that are out at the moment.  This was a bit of an experiment in something different but I like the way it has turned out.  I hope you do too.

If you are interested in learning how I did this card, then just contact me at dotdotstamping@tpg.com.au    I would be happy to demonstrate this at a workshop or I can organise a class to include something similar.

I did do some stamping over the weekend and made some cards, but nothing really seemed to be working.  I thought I would do some experimenting and try some different things to what I usually make, but nothing seemed to turn out quite right.  Maybe it is because I am a little weary.  We had a thunderstorm on Saturday night and Jamie was really scared.  I think it is the first time he has been really aware of the thunder and he just wanted me to hold him while we sat on his bed… for two hours in the middle of the night.  I then had to work all day on Sunday so I came home with aching feet and feeling very worn out.

So, now that I have had my complain for the day…

I have made a birthday card today for a special lady by the name of Mary.  Mary is my Mum’s carer.  Mum had a fall about 12 months ago and broke her hip.  Mary goes to Mum’s place every morning to help her with her shower.  I actually think that Mum is quite capable of having a shower on her own now but just enjoys Mary’s company!! 🙂 So this is the card I made for Mary to go with a bottle of bubbly!  Hope you enjoy it Mary 🙂
