When I originally started my crafty hobby some years back I made layouts of the boys to capture all my favourite moments of them and now have an album for each of them but stopped making 12 x 12 pages when I came across the crafting community on you Tube and turned my hand to making albums and memory books.
After sorting through all the photos on my laptop recently I found some I though I'd like to make into pages again and heres a couple of them tat featured on the Paper Crafters Library blog a couple of weeks ago.
.The first is of the boys (and me) when they were 9 and 4. Why do boys always feel the urge to pull a face just when the camera goes click!! the photo really captures their characters and I love it to bits.
I used Cor'dinations for the back ground and Bohemian Bazaar papers by G45 for the detail along with a few of the gorgeous Petaloo flowers that cam in our G45 DT boxes.

The second layout is a real favourite. its of my mum (left) and her two sisters taken in 1945 at Lower Spode Farm in shropshire where they spent 5 years during the war with my Grandma, Uncle and Aunt. Sadly mum and Auntie Sheila died in their 40's so this layout was a really special one ot make. i used the12 x 12 Ladies Diary papers by Graphic 45.

I had lots of fun putting these two layouts together, although it took ages to decide where to put each element lol. If you fancy putting one together yourself there s a sketch below to follow. I'd love to see your finished project and share your pictures on my followers gallery.
Happy crafting :-)
