18th birthday scrapbook

some pages were made by me, others from my 7yr old, and some from family & friends all of different scrapbooking abilities. Truly unique.

For this we used Papermania Portobello Road 12x12 papers and accessories, with a few added touches of our own. I'll post a few pages at a time. I'd love to hear what you think.

Major celebration

A few weeks ago we celebrated two major events on one special day. My son's 18th birthday. On that same day 10 years ago he started chemotherapy for cancer on his 8th birthday. He has been 10 years cancer free. Now I think that's worth celebrating.

In light of this I decided to create a scrapbook for his birthday. It was a complete surprise to him. I sent scrapbook paper, accessories and a note to family and friends asking for their own interpretation using photos, memories, funny stories, advice etc and it was wonderful to see their creations.

I'll post the pictures separately.

My clever dad's painting

Look at this beautiful picture my clever dad painted for us for Christmas. It's his interpretation of a villa we stayed at in Majorca a few years ago. Here's the photo it's painted from.
I'm so proud of him. He had an exhibition with the rest of his art group in October. I'll try to find pics of his other paintings.

How strange

Ok now that's weird. My background has reappeared but my slideshow has gone. Strange things afoot in blogger land.
