Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by.
Today I'm sharing an older layout that I did for a very special lady which I hope you can grab a little inspiration from.
I haven't had time to do a lot of crafting lately, why?? because I am in the middle of relocating my little scrapbook shop into a bigger and hopefully better premises. We are planning to be open in the New Year so as you can imagine I am very busy.
Enough about that lets get back to the layout.

Hello all and welcome to my little blog.
Today I have something a little different than my usual scrap booking.
I am sharing with you an altered book that I did with one of my favourite photographs of myself and my children.
A few years ago we did a photo shoot which was a gift for me for Mother's Day from these special humans. Its was the best day, us girls got our hair and make up professionally done. The photographer came up with some fun poses which in the end has us all in stitches.
Taking an old hardcover book and altering it to create a beautiful keepsake was just so much fun. Adhering all the pages so that they fall just the way I wanted them to look. Adding the flowers, metal trinkets and chipboard pieces. These are great projects to use all those bits and pieces that you have lying around in your craft room.
Next I covered everything with Gesso. I added the colours using Prima sprays.
Finished it with some extra flowers.
Its Monday Creations time again.
This week has gone by so quickly and I realised that its not long now till Christmas. I wonder how many of you ave got all or some of your Christmas shopping done. I know I have only got a couple of gift so far.
Today I am sharing a photograph of myself and my eldest granddaughter Emelia aka Milly with you. My daughter, myself and my 2 granddaughters went on a trip for a couple of days to Norah Head lighthouse on the Central Coast of NSW. We had a fabulous time exploring the beach and taking some great photographs.
The papers used for this layout are from Maja Designs
I've used chipboard from Dusty Attic, WOW, 2Crafty and Kaisercraft. The flowers are from 49&Market and Prima.
Some close-ups and further details....
Love the seagulls from Dusty Attic.
Prills and Finnabair Art Stones always finish a layout beautifully. The title and some of the chipboard leaves were inked with Stamperia leather spray and the blue is Perfect pearls in Patina Blue.
