An Atc i made ages ago and made 2 because i wanted one to keep.
Its supposed to symbolise Marc Anthony in one of Cleopatras rooms of her palace waiting to see her reaction when she see's a large emerald he has left on her pillow as she sleeps.
The stories we weave when making ATCs haha

Another Challenge from Lori

My friend in Australia Lorri asked me if i would join in the challenge again on her blog

This time its a photo of her mom and dad in the 1950s heres the pic

So i thought id send them both off on a little trip to Italy and add a bit of colour to them.

I really enjoyed this challenge and hope Lorri likes what i have done.

Heres the pic after i altered it

Let me know what you think too.

My Gran

Heres a page from a memory book i am doing about my family history.

My Gran was an amazing woman and i didnt get the time i would have liked to have had with her.
She was the UKs top woman stilt walker and apparently had a pair of stilts she had to get out of the bedroom window to use (how amazing is that i just love it).
Her Mother and Father eloped, as my great grandma was a lady and my great grandpa was a shepherd and couldnt read or write.
And her uncle came and gave her a bag of sovereigns to keep her and her 7 children going.

I have used the new spellbinders wizard dies to make this page.The flower i have made using the nested Peony die and the pages that tell her story are made using the negetive parts of the grand 12" heirloom scroll border.I have done it so that each layer opens as a page and you can read my memories of my Gran.
