A new LO

This Layout has pictures taken 30 years apart. The first picture is my sister Heather - I think shes about 10 months old and it was taken in 1974. My Dad was into photography and he shot this pic - as he died in 1993 his slide collection suddenly became quite precious and this was one of the pictures we found amongst his slides.

The colour photograph my SIL took of my gorgeous Nephew Matthew in 2004 I think hes a little younger than Heather was but the picture is remarkably similar even to the expression on their faces.
The papers are by Basic Grey. The letters are also a Basic Grey I think - I just drew around chipboard letters then inked the edges. Not sure about the arrow stamp i bought it from ebay earlier in the year. Of course the flower stamp is by Blonde Moments - I have stamped with black perfect medium, used clear embossing powder all onto navy card then painted the flower with blonde moments pearl pigments.
Ive also done 2 lots of stitching on the page - template from basil basics. I do love the texture that stitching gives to LO.

I did this at craft club last night. It started off based on a sketch but has ended up not like it at all. Really enjoyed doing a LO again but then at the end of the session went into a vertigo attack and my poor pals ended up looking after me as i became unsteady and very sick on the way home. Sorry Bee xx and huge thanks to Michelle and Debs for looking after me sooo well.
Thats 2 in 2 days - Not nice and I hope its not going to be a pattern. Im back at work tomorrow and do not need to complicate things with having a vertigo attack there.
Hope your day has been good and thanks for looking xx
