My boys

It has not been the best week for New Zealand and in particular for those in Christchurch.  My heart goes out to them all.  It has certainly been a time of reflection and a time where you appreciate everything that you have and hold dear like my boys. 

I saw this wonderful tiered card template in the Splitcoaststampers site that I used in this layout.

Origami Photo album

This would be my all time favourite album.  I used only Stampin up products.  The album is made by joining origami folder photo frames with a triangle insert.  The album box is made from scratch, with the flowers made using the scallop punch.

Friendship Album

The boys have a birthday this weekend and as a little extra gift I have create a little album for the boys to give her.  It have photos from the last three years, at home and at school disco's.  I made the album from leftover patterned paper and recycled cardboard, together with some scraps of ribbon, wool and leather.   Tomorrow I will make a box to store the album and a friendship layout.  Hopefully this will be something that they will reopen and share in years from now.

It's raining, it's pouring

Spent the morning cutting out circles and leaves.  And scrapped a photo of Tira from 4 years ago.


It's stopped raining now and looking good for the Teams Champs this evening.  Which means the house to myself.  What to do, what to do?????
