Memories of Us!

THE COVER

This was made with a page from the Recollections *Stitch in Time* paper pad.  I cut out the flowers, pots, leaves and table cloth from the paper, then embossed the flowers leaves & pots to round them out, glued them onto the paper and added a button to the centre of each flower. I bound it with my Cinch and added ribbons to the binding.
(Since I took this picture I added sparkles to the title)

Some of the inside pages...

My hubby and me (or is it I) at a local trade fair in 1991.

Hubby in his workshop.
I used a template found online to make the apron.  Cut out each piece from denim paper, inked the edges with distress ink, then added the tools to the pocket.

 There are 3 pages here of the pets we have owned over the years. Sophie and Alfie we have now, unfortunately Toby died just over a year ago.  He was 12years old, we had him from a few weeks old.

A few years ago at a hotel in California the morning we left on a cruise.  The large flower is one I found on sale at Scrapbookers Paradise. I cut out the swirl on my Cricut.

 We took a trip to England in 2009.  Here we are with some of our family (we're in the middle)  I added a paper ruffle to one end of this page.

My lovely hubby on a cruise we took in January of this year.

 Dancing at our sons wedding.....almost 25 years ago!! Gulp!! ;=)
The birdcage is cut with my Cricut.  I added thin red strips of paper to the back so it would show through the holes.  The edging is cut out with an EK Success edge punch.

This is the last page which opens up from the top and bottom.


Inside the last page.
We can be as goofy as anyone, as you can see!


THE BACK COVER

Most of the sentiments I used in this album are from TLC and Ginger.  I have links to their blogs on the right.

I haven't included all the album pages here, I think that's probably enough for now..... but there are a couple more pages on recent posts. 


Appreciate so much you stopping by to look at my blog, I'll be back with more soon.
