Tarisota

I am finally allowed to share. The Tarisota gallery is up, so go check it out! To say I was thrilled to be asked to do this would be a bit of an understatement LOL. The biggest pizza box I have ever seen arrived the day before I had a crop for 10 of the Scrap Pile girls here. It was filled with so much amazing stuff, and boy was it hard to keep it hidden!

First up is the accordian book. I made this for my mum's birthday (hopefully she doesn't read this!) which is comming up. It's all about her four grandsons (except now she has a granddaughter too). The piccie on the front is mum and dad, with (L-R) Ethan, Liam, Aidan and Will. I took it last year, but I know she loves it, and she has it framed in her lounge.

The album inside the box. The magnetic buckle thingy and ribbon hold it closed.
The first page is a bit of a thankyou to her, for all the hard work she's put in to looking after the boys. They are great grandparents and it's no wonder the boys all adore them.



















Now the layouts. One of my fave pics of Liam at the beach with his little tractors. How unreal are those transparancy letters.




















I LOVE this photo, so I had to keep it big. Cheeky little thing on my bed, with his Giraffe (he can say "my giraffe" by the way! The hearts are a mix of paper, and fabric.




















Another fave pic. As soon as I opened the parcel I knew I had to scrap this photo.


















And finally, my big boy hunting for treasures at Mount Martha beach. The flowers were cut from one of the patterned papers, so I just included a detail photo of them. That was fun! Thanks Tamar :)

LOL, you know I was stalking Tarisota just to see your LOs. I thought they'd be up at the start of the month! If their hit counts have gone up, it'll be me.
I love every single one of these, but as you know the haircut one is my favourite. Just love it!
