Two posts in one day!

I've been wanting to try scrapping a photo into a photo frame "box" for a while, since I saw a couple of pictures of them in the new catalogue. So Mothers Day is approaching, can't afford pearls, so a picture of the darling grandchildren it is!

I took the photo this morning while all the kids were actually there (doesn't seem to happen that often these days!) ... Charlotte (the youngest) wasn't happy because it was drizzling and she hadn't been awake long ... but she managed to sort of smile!

Anyway - I bought the frames from Farmers, there was only one of the one I really preferred (the bigger "box"), but anyone who knows my MIL knows that I won't be too worried that her one is in the smaller, not quite what I was looking for, frame! LOL

I've been dying to try the rub-ons, so I rubbed some onto the front glass of one, and the frame of the other - they're great!

Stamps: Stem Silhouettes
DP: Old Olive
Card Stock: Night of Navy, Old Olive
Other: Rub-ons, Brads, Dimensional Dots, Vanilla Wide Grosgrain Ribbon

(I'll come back and edit the proper names, I'm at work and forgot my catalogue!)

Oh - and the quote says "Family is like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts" - that was pretty appropriate for our lot!

Awwwww ... True Love

I have to start this with an apology ... there is no Stampin' Up product in these pictures! ... I obviously need to do something about that! LOL

Our 16 (nearly 17)yo has been going out with a lovely girl (Rebecca) for a whole year - yesterday was their one year anniversary! (that's a long time in 15/16yo land, I'm sure). Anyway, not only has Rebecca really settled our David down and made him a much nicer boy (well, he was always nice, but he was definitely "missing" something and she has filled that gap). So anyway, not only is she the best thing for him ... but she scrapbooks too! What more could a mother ask for? LOL

She surprised him with an album for their one year anniversary, and it is just lovely :) These are just a sampling, each page has a quote and a picture of them, so so sweet!

Isn't she clever? ... and yeah, no SU! in there - she has got some SU! stamps ... might need to have a wee chat to her ... LOLOL
