Grace's Memory Book - Mike before Grace

Oh I don't know where to start. I had the pleasure of seeing Sue's craft room. It is amazing. I came home and discussed using my other son's bedroom for a craft room. This room has a fantastic big window for natural light. An existing cupboard just ready for shelving to be added. On the Sunday Matt and I went to Tickerty Boo on Wilton Road and other than buying a rather large gazebo Matt also spotted a lovely bar chair, leather. So as Matt had said yes to the move - oh room in the lounge for the xmas tree with this idea. We bought the chair (of course I am trying it out now in the lounge as Matt says I have to wait till the Party is over before I start on the move :( ).

Well enough of my little bit of excitement. Here is Mike's page for Grace's memory book. Tracey at Running with Scissors had very kindly assisted me to locate the papers for the black, red and white theme I needed, and don't they look ace. So simply done for a masculine look. Red base layering the black spotty on top. Edging with little red triangles and a black pearl on each corner. Layering a little of the black stripy and then the photo and wording matted onto the red also. I think he will like it.

anyway off to clean up, thanks for looking

You'll love having your own craft room Kate, although mine is always a tip, it's always ready to use, if you know what I mean. You can just leave things mid stream and shut the door on it.

I love the colour scheme. In fact we worked with black and white today in my class. We made 2 out of the three cards I designed. I will be blogging them soon, time permitting.

Hi Kate,

Having your own crafty space will be a real pleasure I'm sure. I love mine it's my little oasis of crafty chaos and I can't imagine how I managed beforehand.
