This is a page made at the November retreat, when I had a whole weekend to craft... so lots of these pages have a lot of time consuming detail. The photos are of Harry on his first day at secondary school (complete with cute new glasses.) I made the series of borders at the bottom using a Fiskars threading water punch over and over, and curled the edges slightly to give a 3D feel to it. The paper is hand stitched to the cardstock, and I added a small bead every other stitch. It did take a long time, but as I was friends i didn't mind so much as I just chatted as I sewed:) The title is cut using a Sizzix die and Glossy Accents were added on top. Journalling strips and a couple of threaded buttons finished the page. It's funny but even compared to this page, Harry has grown up so much in the last year.
