Merry Christmas Everyone!

I hope you all have a great day tomorrow and get spoilt with love and gifts.

Will be back to share pictures of my Chrissy gifts after they are all given out tomorrow.


Photos for Christmas Gifts

Well life has been one big race at the moment, and I am sure you can all relate.  Two more sleeps till the man in red visits, much to the disgust of my children.  They want tomorrow to disappear so that Christmas comes earlier.  It is coming quite early enough for me thank you very much.  Although this year I feel quite organised..........hmmm, maybe I have missed  a whole bunch of things that I should have done.  Oh well, too late now.  I am finishing up tonight by working on Christmas Calendars for the parents and today we finally got around to taking the photo for it.  Here are my gorgeous boys:

Of course the photos were done under duress and lots of coaxing from me.  You know "the faster you get this done the faster you can get away from me!!', that kind of thing.  Anyway, I am quite happy with the result and I even got some nice portrait shots of them.

I will be back to share the finished calenders with you sometime soon.

Sweet Christmas Gift

I am such a lucky girl.  I was surprised today with a knock on my door from Kerry (the person who commissioned the below album) who was standing there with this in her hands.

How lovely to be thanked in this way for doing something I love so much.  I am tickled pink to see how happy she is with the album and she can't wait to give it to her friends.

And yes, I DID crack it open straight away and enjoyed some goodies with my cup of tea.   Let me tell you, Kerry is a FABULOUS cook.  These goodies are to die for.  Yummy!!!!

Thank you so much Kerry and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

THIS is what I have been working on...

and it is finally finished and delivered to it's owner.  Phew, it was a huge job.  But I honestly had so much fun creating it.

I kept the pages nice, clean and simple as the recipients are not scrapbookers and I didn't want to overwhelm them.  They simply need to print photos and stick them in.

It was commissioned by a close friend to present for a 50th Birthday celebration and they are travelling to Dubai.

 Therefore the album was inspired by the  location for colours and the friend provided me with titles and quotes.

While I don't usually create albums for other people, I loved creating this album and can't wait to hear how the recipients react when they recieve it.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great day.
