UFO NUMBER 1

Right as part of mine and Sonja's stash busting/UFO finishing challenge this is a mini book that I started at a workshop at Simply Create quite a few months ago....

I was going to use a series of photos from a day out we had a Haughton Park in Alford with cousins, aunties, uncle and friends til I realised I only had about 5 pictures(forgot I was going to get some from Pete but never did) so I decided to make it a book about April 2011 instead and since it was Morgan and Ellie's 12th and 11th birthdays on the 14th...


It's a very picture heavy post so I wont bore you with the 'how it was put together' waffle, I will just let you enjoy the photos...


I love these flowers and my niece was round one night and her pearly necklace snapped all over the conservatory floor and I said I would string it back together for her but never did so i pinched them and used some for the insides of these gorgeous flowers on the front cover...






The very front cover is perspex so the flowers and the lovely swirly stamp are on the outside and when you open it you can see the full LO...






Morgan on his birthday...not looking very happy....




The terrible twosome - Niamh and Blair - they are either fighting like cat and dog or best of buds....a very love/hate relationship but they are very close cousins....



Ellie's friends on her birthday sleep-over...


Trying to light the candles outside was hilarious as it was quite a breezy day...we would no sooner have some lit than they would all start going out...gave up in the end!!!


Niamh lost her first tooth so was very excited....


One of my cherry blossoms in full bloom...



Mother's Day...not exactly what look Allan was aiming for here...lol...



And I love the label for the back...even tho it's Jacqui's design I have made it my own unique book with the photos used and the different page arrangements ....I am funny like that when I go to a class I am always trying to change things so they are not carbon copies of the whole class...


Anyhoos - Thanks for looking...
