Thanks to Heidi Swapp

because I found some wonderful videos that she shares on My Craft Channel.  As I was browsing through the videos I came across the Stand Up Album that she had created and at that moment, I knew that I had found my inspiration for a Birthday Gift for my eldest daughter.
She definitely doesn't get it from me but Stacey has a passion for running, so my creative juices started flowing and I put together this inter-active album.

Stacey opened her present while we were talking on the phone and she totally loved it.  She was amazed when she realized it was inter-active with loads of space to document, add photos, make lists etc.  While flipping through the pages she said that there was so much more she wanted to include and asked if I would make some more pages.  With Heidi's great idea of using binder rings, that is going to be no problem at all.
I also must mention that I tried Heidi's method of making a book (mine is a mini) in her video Magnetic Book Part 2.  I need more practice as I did get a little confused but it all worked out in the end.

365 Day Later.....

and I am back.   The past year has been a roller coaster to say the least.  I wont bore you with all the details but I can say that Debbie has responded very well to treatment and at the moment is leukaemia free.  I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart who has been there to support our family through this tough journey.  Like Debbie, I am overwhelmed by the love and generosity of those who have come into our lives this past year.
With so much focus placed on disasters,  tragedy, financial turmoil and politics ( I do not dismiss the importance of these issues)  but we rarely here of the Earth Angles who walk among us.
WOW, I didn't mean to get so heavy in my first post in a year.  I am really happy to be back and hope to share a couple of projects that I have started working on.
