Final Pages

 Well, finally I have finished the pages, although I could still add quite a bit to the book with the addition of tags with journaling and maybe some photographs on them.  A bit of ribbon on the tags might also add some interest.  As you can see I have changed this page as I really didn't like the previous one that I did.  This is a technique I learnt from dina Wakeley and I love it.
 To the right is My "MUM" page and I was so pleased that the photo I chose when cut out fitted exactly on top of the mushrooms.  You will gather that it is mostly Dylusions sprays and stamps that I have chosen to use, with the odd Paper Artsy flower and free Craft Stamper butterfly.
 This is my "AUNT" page and it was noway big enough to put pictures of all my nephews and neices so its hands pointing to their names.  Maybe this is where tags would be handy to include their pictures inside the pockets.
This is supposed to be me as a monster to my dear daughter-in-law.  I am really a nice MOTHER-in-LAW.
 And finally the future and the continuation of our Family Tree.  This is a scan of my first great grandchild due around New Years Day.  Lots to look forward to and so many happy memories in the past.
As you can guess this picture should have been a bit further up.  It's my "NAN" page and I had this idea that I would do The Mad Hatters Tea Party.  As I have four grandchildren it fitted perfectly and I am really pleased with the result.  The background was a masking tape technique from this months Craft Stamper.  Brilliant and so easy.  Love how I had a photo of Jess with the "White Rabbit".I have really enjoyed making this book and I will be doing more of them as I have loads of Takeaway Bags yet to use.  I hope you have enjoyed looking and to those of you already making your own I know you are loving it too.
