Owl Always Love You

Phew how lucky am I, just spent 10 days at Rhyl in the North of Wales with a crafting buddy of mine who has a mobile home there.

We arranged the holiday months and months ago and it was supposed to be a crafting retreat for both of us. Well as you can imagine we have had wall to wall sunshine which was hot, hot and more hot. No I am not complaining about the weather but because it was so hot we spent more time going to different sea-sides than we did crafting. So very little to show but at least I got my son and DIL’s Wedding Anniversary album completed. They have been married 20 years on Wednesday, 17th July which makes me feel really ancient now.

Lucky enough for me the album fits in with the theme of the challenge over at Fashionable Stamping which is Flora & Fauna.
This means anything flowery or anything with animals.

How sweet does the front of the album look with that huge hand made flower and the two die cut owls. Papers used are Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante.

The inside has a beautiful stamped image from Inkylicious which I water coloured with DI inks. The following page also has a handmade flower on it.
When you turn to the next two pages I embossed some cardstock with a postcard embossing folder then stamped a gorgeous image from one of Flonz Crafts which you can find here. Next to it is some tissue paper and below is a stamped sentiment.

    Sounds like you had a good time even if you didn’t craft much!
    Great Album Shirley, lovely pages and images and I’m sure it will be a lovely keepsake for your Son and DIL -(you must have been a child bride if your son has been married for 20 years).

    The most important thing on a holiday is to have a good time, even if what you planned did not quite happen! Sound like you had a great time and that is good! Now this album is “Great” and I love that Owl. My youngest will turn 40 shortly and I am thinking I could be in that ancient grouping! Hugs!
