I think there should be an award for parent who successfully get their children to the age of 18! I also think that if you can give birth to a child without an epidural you should have a brand new car outside the door of the hospital with a big bow on it as a reward! Anyway, my friend Audrey has the most wonderful goodnatured, beautiful daughter and I was asked by her best friend Lizzie to make a book for Rachael for her 18th Birthday.
I chose the Pink Paislee Sweeetness collection for the book, and when Audrey saw me working on it I saw that she was not convinced - but I think she liked the end result.
I wanted to go for a Shabby Chic look on the book, and made the little hand made flowers, and small details to keep the theme.
On the cover I ruched and sewed the ribbon in place on the acetate cover, and attached the lace and ric rack with glue - Hearts were cut from the die cut paper to create the bunting, and I glazed the letters with a Gelly Roll pen.
I am not going to show you the whole book, but bits of the book as there are lots of photos of the girls growing up and they deserve their privacy....
Ok - It's my first time blogging on the Mac and I've had such a hard time.... This blog post is not nicely laid out, but at this moment I just want to pick it up and throw it out the window.... I will master this new machine if it's the last thing I do LOL!!! Any tips gratefully received.
I have a card and a LO to share with you, we had a lovely crop day yesterday and I made a card, a LO and started another LO.... So very productive and happy to be in good like minded company.
Will share soon. Ta M
