Mum and me

Evening everyone, I thought I'd squeeze one last post in before heading off to Peterborough in the morning. This was the last of the layouts I've put together for the show set and also my own scrapbook album that I'm slowly building up for the boys.  This is their mum (me) and their grandma (my mum) who sadly they never got to meet. Its nearly 40 years since she died and this is one of the few photo's I have of us together. I thought I'd create us a layout for my book using the Once Upon a Springtime signature sheet, a backing paper and the large frame from the collection. If you're a G45er you'll know that Graphic 45 always give us great signature sheets in each collection and it's great fun to deconstruct them, and restructure them to make a fabulous picture.  

I hope you can join me for more g45 fun tomorrow at 1pm BST and again on Friday at 1pm and 6pm BST.  You can mail into the shows too at studio@createandcraft.tv and go into the cup to win one of our demo cards.  

It's bubbly bath time for me so I'm going to head off.  Have a good couple of days and hope to catch up again over the weekend. :-) 


  1. Какая чудесная страничка! Давно являюсь постоянным читателем вашего блога и всегда восхищаюсь вашими работами. Я совсем недавно стала увлекаться скрапбукингом и ваши работы для меня являются вдохновением. Приглашаю заглянуть ко мне в гости. С уважением, Ольга.

    What a wonderful site! Has long been a regular reader of your blog and always admire your work . I recently began to get involved in scrapbooking and your work for me are the inspiration. I invite you to look to visit me http://lelyamozgscrap.blogspot.ru/2014/08/45.html. Sincerely, Olga .

  2. Another lovely layout Clare. Like you I am building up a family album for my children (mainly my daughter I think and her family). Lucky enough to have a couple of pictures of my great grandparents (early 1900's) which is what started me off. That and not knowing who some of the people in photos were after mum passed away, which is sad. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. Oh wow, a beautiful page! Creative Blessings. Tracy x
