Better late than never!

After almost a year, I have finally finished my frame project of my husband with our then, new baby granddaughter. I love the photo....I can just imagine her little mind saying....'now who are you again in relation to me??' Yesterday we had a get together of friends at Ann Craig, our friend and Stampin' Up consultants home....very handy if you need to purchase anything to add to your project or start your project because she has everything!! We were to start at 10am and finish by 4pm....of course, I was running a bit late, but I was not alone!! I was on a mission to finish a project I had started quite some time ago, but it had ground to a standstill as I was unsure of how to put it together. So with that and a back up of some other old family photos I began.

I had asked everybody to bring along something to share for lunch. Ann disappeared to go get lunch organised and to our dismay when she said lunch was ready the formal dining room was all set up with champagne glasses, and silver cutlery. It looked beautiful! I had made Maggie Beer's Macaroni Cheese, other's had bought lovely chicken rolls, and spinach and feta rolls. Ann had made a pavlova and there was chocolate and bubbly as well. With a few drinks under our belts between us, we managed lots of laughter too.

Anyway, I managed to get my frame complete and start on 2 other pages as well, but will complete them here at home. Here are the photos of my project. I have used a Webster's page, Stampin' Up die cut for the flowers, the little leaf flourish comes from my friend Kim at PaperArtsy, (you can order them on line) The little bees are a new stamp from Layers of Color Australia and the butterfly is also a die cut from SU.

Some challenges I have entered into are:
