Finished at last!!!

At long last it is finished and has gone to it's proper home. I've loaded a few piccies for viewing but I'm aware that this is a very personal treasure and so I'd like to protect the owners' privacy by not putting every detail on view to the world and it's auntie!!! The actual photos of the photos (if you know what I mean!)are a bit rubbish anyway due to my poor flash photography skills but I'm really pleased with how the book itself turned out. I hope my fellow crafters enjoy taking a peek! All the dangly bits on the bookrings were taken from some cheapo Primark jewellery. Honestly, I can't tell you how handy that shop is for this sort of thing!
Special thanks to Elaine, for letting me borrow some of your lovely gold embossing powder which I used for the heart on the cover. I love the way it's turned out - like beaten metal. Cool!

New additions chez Strachan...

Just adorable!



OMG! The cutest things, tho I say so myself. 11 weeks old and all the way from Carnoustie this Tuesday - drum roll... - it's Prince Kaspar Kandinsky (grey boy - Kaspar for short!) and Mog (ickle girl!) both names picked by our girls... you can probably guess who named which!!! A house is not a home without cats so we're all happy again being entertained by these furry little bundles of mischief. Crash - that was a tablelamp just hitting the floor!! Time to move all breakables to safety. Oh and how can such little paws make such a noise similar to a heard of buffalo rampaging through the house? Aww, happy days
