Happy Birthday June!

Toady is DH's mum's birthday.

I hope that the following has reached her in time!! If not here is a preview June, lol.




Tracey if you sorta recognise this card, it's because I lifted a few elements from a card that you sent to me recently!!! Click here to see Tracey's Book!

Mini Heart Book


Pages 1 and 2

Pages 3 and 4

5 and 6

I saw the little book that Tracey made for her mum while she was celebrating her birthday in hospital and thought what a cute idea, so ......

I used some cardboard from the back of paper packs and cut heart shapes from it (I wasn't going to use flowers like Tracey has as there would of been way too much cutting out to do). I then used papers to cover the hear shapes, used some flowers, crystals, lace and inks!!! I punched two holes on the side to thread some ribbon through to keep the pages together.

Once I had the papers on I used sandpaper and distressed all the edges, this also made the cardboard more neater.

The journaling blocks were printed on cardstock, pearl, inked edges and glued down.

BBC 2 - My First Car

OOh my first car was a White 1989 Hatchback Honda Civic, the above photo is the best that I could find, I do have a photo of my car somewhere but I cannot find it :(

My Honda didn't have the red stripe but it did have red allies!!!! There was so much space in the car, Chloe was only tiny but we could fit her and her car set, my mum and me it the back no problems and we weren't all squished. In high winds the car was so solid that you barely even felt the winds, it could move when you wanted it to. It gave me no problems except when it died :( and would of cost more than the car was worth to get it fixed! I think we bought it in 1997 and it went to car heaven in 2000 roughly!
