A Happy Page

This LO is one I made at the Exhall crop last month, with LOTS of cutting out (and RSI of the scissor hand!) The whole flourish is all cut from a patterned paper.. no idea of the make.

The photo is one I really love of my Mum and Dad on holiday with us back in August. It was my nephews birthday, and his treat was a trip to the best local fish and chip shop, so all of us who were there at the seaside (Our 5 plus an added boyfriend, my sisters two boys and herself, my brother and Mum and Dad) filled half of the restaurant for fabulous seafood dining!!!

The reason I love the page is twofold, a happy memory of a lovely meal out together, and the fact that Mum looks so well in the photo. She was very unwell at the beginning of the year, but seemed to be back to her old self once summer arrived. The page has lovely flocked acetate down the left hand side, and I hand stitched the title, and added extra journalling to the original design... I just can't leave a LO without the journalling :)

Hannah had a special lunch out with my Mum and Dad today before she heads off to Uni, she said the pub seemed to be full of young people with their Grandparents.. maybe they all had the same idea on the same day.



Cor Hannah off to uni - how is that going to be? Hope the new term is going well - The layout looks like a lot of love and work went into it :)

p.s. don't you look like your Mum? I'm pleased she's doing better.

Beautiful page and a lovely memory for you too. I expect you'll miss your daughter when she leaves. I know I miss my two, but that's life, they have to spread their wings.
