Domino family book

Gingersnap Creations Challenge GC141 is Granny's Photo Album & this is my entry - a domino book featuring photo's of my family on the maternal side. This is the front.

and the back of the closed book.

The open book

and a close up of my Great Grandmother & Great Grandmother & Great Grandpa

I'm very lucky to have some fantastic old family photos to draw on which I reduced in size & printed out to use:-) Some I used whole & some I cut out.

I'd started to make this domino book for my Mum just before flying out to Oz so just packed it up, including bits that I thought that I may want to use & finished it off .....

I'm having problems with blogger - not allowing me to upload all the pic's I wanted to but hopefully those that have uploaded will give you the idea of my domino book.

I loved doing it & it was much appreciated by my Mum :-)

Thank You cards

The reason for my lack of  posting, as some of you will already know, is that my father died unexpectedly & I've had to dash over to Oz to support Mum.

We had a lovely Celebration of Dad's life & Mum & I have been making Thank you cards for all the wonderful people that have been so kind.

Above are a few of the cards that I made after raiding Mum's crafting stash...... :-)

and I managed to photograph a few of Mum's - she had already sent a lot off before I realised :-)

Our styles are different but all the cards are made with love :-)
