Something a bit older

My friend Elaine was 40 earlier this year, so I planned to make her something, but as I had made another friend a life scrapbook, and did'nt want to do the same thing again. I was stumped and I saw something that gave me an idea in the Scrapbook Trends "Homemade" magazine and I decided that I might try and make her a Scrapbook Quilt for her wall... Made with MDF and carboard, there are 9 tiles with each one showing a photo of Elaine and other people in her life and times in her life.

Not too sure if she liked it, but I was happy with it, have to keep the ideas for 40th presents coming as they parties keep coming....
Back of the scrapquilt - with personal notes from family and friends....

How could she NOT like it? It's just beautiful and what a lovely touch to put all those messages on the back. The floodgates would open if I had been given something like this :P
