Mama Mia!!!...

The Journaling says it all:

Liam received a set of
plastic handcuffs and a
suction-cup dart gun as
a present and we have
ALL had to enjoy his
new tots!!..

Of course his Mom is a
bigger clown that he is,
so I was able to get
this great photo of her
face..when he said...

"Mom.. you're going to
Jail!!" ...ummm maybe
he's seen Toy Story too

All papers are from:
Cosmo Cricket's - Dutch Girl Collection

Earth to Kiara...

Kiara was playing Ninendo while I was finishing some work on a mini-album I had done ..I had asked her a question and after a moment realized she hadn't heard me.. I giggled to myself as I saw how absorbed she was and started taking pics of her.. it took a minute or two before she figured out what I was doing... hee hee..unfortunately the pics are kind of dark..but they tell the story so well, I made the layout anyway... all the papers and embellishments are from the Crate Paper's Mia Collection

It's a Good Life...

It was hard to get any "pretty pictures" at the construction site of a new house Jordan and Luca are building..however a few flowers, lots of free hand cut shapes,some fingernail distressing and Liam's crooked pants certainly lent to the charm of this Layout,hee hee

All papers are from Cosmo Cricket's L'il Man and Snorkel Collection...

A Book of Me...

I've been working on this little toilet roll album and box to store it in, for the past three weeks... whenever Liam ( my 3 year old grandson ) is napping..I am also preparing a picture/tutorial based on this album that I will make available, once I am back in Canada in October..

I was so fortunate that I had some digitals with me, that I had scanned from some of my ancestry photographs, which I was able to use for this album...

The papers, including cardstock and epoxy stickers are from the S.E.I.'s BEAUTIFUL Moravia Collection ..

I have so few supplies with me here in Italy..papers,some stamps and fortunately a sewing shop not too far away, where I was able to purchase ribbon and embroidery floss...just goes to show you, eh??

The slideshow tutorial on how to make this type of album is shown here:

Darling Girl...

I think I'm hooked on these toilet roll albums...it is such a neat idea...great brag books, like this one I made for the my grandaughter Kiara's "other" Nonna...it's big enuff for 2 3/4" x 3 1/2" photos and so easy to make...fits inside a plastic sandwich bag and just toss it in your purse so you can bore...errrrr I mean...delight all your friends!!
