Happy New Year


I thought I would wish you all a happy and healthy new year for 2008.


I just finished decorating this canvas frame with a picture of my Dad. This is a great photo, you can see he is sitting on something.... well it was a canon and he is smirking as he is holding a lighter in his hand as if to light it and blow it up! This is how my Dad was, a fun person to be with. :) 2007 has to be the saddest of my life for loosing my Dad and for seeing my Mum just so sad, its heartbreaking. With that said I know Dad would hate to see us all like this, so I am going to try with the new year, try to look ahead, enjoy what I have, what memories I have of my Dad and try and make the most of everything and everyday.

I used some embossing powder on chipboard letters for this. I havent done this technique for SO LONG but I really enjoyed it and I will be buying myself some ultra thick in the new year so it wont take me so long to build up the layers. Quiet simple but I like it, just thought it would be nice to do something different than just stick a photo in a frame. Mum likes it, I said I would make her something simular too.

So boys are in bed, we are eating tuna vol au vents, sausage rolls and other nibbles. This is our welcome to the new year.

Lots of love everyone
