Catching up....again


It's been a long time since I posted here. But I've been busy, so I have an excuse:)
I'll post a couple of pix of some cards I've made. Also of an album I finally finished for my son, Matt, with pix of his new son! Well relatively new anyway. Also made a couple of layouts about our friend Will, that recently passed away. I gave them to his mom after a memorial service we had for him. And I forgot to take pictures of them! Why do I never remember to take photo's?

Here are some cards that I made using patterns I got from my friend Valita. There are many patterns for sale at her blog. It's at http://valitasfreshfolds.blogspot.com

These are my first attempt at using these folds. So they're not too good...yet. This set of patterns has 8 different flower folds. I've only managed 3 of them so far. I'll do them again before I go on to more of them. Thank you so much Valita for these lovely patterns. Valita lives in Australia and makes copies of flowers indigenous to that region to. I had never seen them before. But they do look like the real thing! She is amazingly talented. Go check her out!

The album is made from the pattern I got from Kathy at Paper Phenomenon. It's a Toy Box with a mini inside. I made one for Matt's brother, Pete with pix of him and his granddaughter Hailey in it. You saw that in the Christmas post.









Mason is almost 4 months old now! And he looks like this. He's just started laughing out loud! Yes, I'm a proud Gramma.

Well, that's all today. It's a great day outside, so I'm going outside to read in the sunlight! I'll catch you all in the blogosphere!
