All my life's a circle...

Sunrise & sundown....

And so this LO began over at ScrapBoutique....I had 2 fabulous images to choose from, so really I incorporated them both.

Then Leann'es challenge to use a photo from Goog le Earth & scrap a page about our home...I really loved this challenge too.

then we have Amanda's Sunday Roast challenge & I scrapped two wonderful people, who are no longer of this world, but who meant the world to us.

A tribute to Pete's wonderful Aunt Heather, & the marvelous Uncle Jim.

Happy scrapping to you too.

We are Fans of Yours!

Well here is my wall hanging that I made for my wonderful grandson Harry. We recently went along to the local Botanical Gardens & my son took some great photos of Harry in the Japanese gardens.
So with Shazza's marvellous goodies  & wonderful challenge SSQ9 at Soul Scrappers I created this for him. 

I used a little chipboard album & inked all the edges, & lightly inked the surfaces.
1. Red pp - made into 2 small fans, & pleated near my Dragon2. Oriental paper - behind photos 3. Red Crepe paper - twisted & used to join & hang the sections4. 2 x metal charms. Larger one hanging on crepe paper, & little one hanging around the Geisha's neck.5. Sequins - various spots6. 2 x cocktail umbrellas. Shading our pretty Geisha, & near my dragon7. Geisha - hand coloured with ordinary colour pencils8. Apple Blossoms - coloured in & trimmed & added in 2 spots9. Gold lantern stickers - 2 spots on the photos10. Geisha sticker - near my hand cut dragon.  My wonderful Confucious quote is - Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.      A beautiful array of goodies, thank you Shazza - I loved working on this one.

Take care,
