I just wanted to show you the album I have completed for my mum’s Best Friend Helen. I am going to visit her on Friday for a few days as I have not seen her since before mum and dad passed away in 2017. I am really looking forward to seeing her.
Above is a slide show with all the album pages for you……………….
This album took me a week to create in between my shift work and other commitments. It was a labour of love to create it for her. Aunty Helen and her kids, Rod and Wendy have been a big part of our lives growing up. Lots of great memories!!
I created a few single pages layouts and then some pocket pages as I didn’t think I would have time to do all singles. I just added some words and embellishments on the pockets. The covers are a cereal box cut down and embellished. I decided not to use binder rings, instead the seam binding to keep it all together.
The page on the left I created of my mum and stepdad (Les) who were married 9/6/72 in Warrnambool Mum and dad were married 44 years and we lived in Colac. Dad was a hard-working, loving, family man and he was 102 when he passed away.
On the last page, I put a photo of My biological dad (Arnold) and my gorgeous mum (Val) when they were first married in 1960. This has been good for me to scrap some old and new memories for her.
I miss mum and dad every day…….. I am very grateful for the precious time we had with them and for the great life and memories that we all had together………
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are able to be creative today……………. I am sure I will have some new memories to share with you when I come home !!!
Have a great week!
