Grace's page In Grace's Memory Book

I went to see how Lindz was holding up this morning and she is doing just fine. I got to feed Faith and watched a slug crawl in Grace's paddling pool. Grace was fascinated by it. Mother was not, and it soon left very quickly.

Whilst there I was able to gather a few more photo's for Grace's Memory Book. Here is Grace's page, this photo was used on the thank you cards that Lindz and Mike had done.

I recently saw the most amazing page and felt instantly I would like to try use the ideas at some point. The page was on Ruth's blog. Ruth creates some amazing stuff and I hope she does not mind me borrowing the main layout idea but it was so inspiring.

The background paper was from a pad of papers I had, think I got this from The Hobby House. The first circle was from paper I got from Running with Scissors - I had used it for a card and had enough left over. The inner circle which is gorgeous and was from a mixed pack of 12 x 12 papers from Running with Scissors. I used the outside of a cd rom stack base for the outside circle and then used some fancy scissors to cut the fluty bits. The inner circle I used a cd itself. I then used Ruth's technique of the tiny pearls on the join. I used word to create the sentiment and some flowers from Hobby Craft and The Hobby House to add some dimension. The It's a Girl embelishment I am not sure where I got this from. I used a corner punch to shape the photo and you can just see a little of my doily punch work.

Well must get back to some housework, so thanks for looking
