Hello every one & thanks for stopping by my blog today, Mwaah x
If you are interested in entering my blog candy, you can do so HERE.
It is a glorious day here today, well it has been all week, yippee. I do love this weather.
I seem to have vanished off of blog land just lately !
As you all know, my Daughter had her baby & she still lives at home with us. She is brilliant with him, but I don't know why, there don't seem to be enough hours in the day. I work in a Nursery school Full Time & by the time I get home & shower, eat, cuddle Eddy etc, etc, it's time for bed!!!
I feel like it's me who's had a baby Lol.
Any way. My Daughter's friend's Nan died, & she asked if I could do a memory page for her. She only had a small photo of her Nan, but she went & got it enlarged & asked me to work on a colour scheme of the flowers in the photo.
I felt very nervous !!! coz if I made a mistake I could ruin it. It's not like when we make a card, it can be binned & start again.
Tiffany (my Daughter's friend) loved it, & was giving it to her Granddad to put above his fire place.
Here it is .........
