Bossy scrapper #5

Sunday brought another fun round of the Bossy Scrapper. This time Jenny was our boss, and gave us instructions on a heritage page. I had these photos on a disc, they were taken off old family slides, of my hubby when he was a tiny little baby! So sweet!! Also in the photos are Andrews gorgeous parents and nanny. Thanks so much Jenny for the inspiration to get these precious photos scrapped!

We had to place a row of five button on our page.Three of these buttons (I cheated, one is a brad!!) come from Andrews mums button tin, thought it would add a personal touch! The lace fabric also come from Murial's linen cupboard, many years ago.

The cotton lace flower, in the centre come from a doily that I believe 'Nanny' may have made. I has been sitting in our cupboard for many a year, I guess we have kept it for sentimental reasons, as you do!! Anyway I got brave, or maybe I was just thinking with my 'scrapping hat' on and decided to snip the flower doily into many flowers. Shhh...don't tell Andrew! My page so needed this flower!

Thank you Jenny, for your lovely clear instructions, and keeping us all working at such an incredible speed. If anyone out there wishes to join in the fun on a Sunday night, do let us know, either on the board at Scrapbook Studio HERE, or leave me a comment on this post and I will tell you how to find your way into the Live Chat room on Sunday evenings.

Maybe I´ll join you one day, but not right now............

I adore your work, Sonya!
And this precious flower makes contact to the past when Andrew was a little baby. It´s a lovely idea to use this old flower and these old buttons, that`s the perfect look!
And the lace and the doodles are beautiful, and so is the rest - a gorgeous page!

I wish you could help me a little bit, I have to make a page for a scrapbook for a friend´s birthday, and I don`t have an idea yet......

Hugs, Renate

That is such a lovely l/o Sonya! And I think it's a good idea to have used that doily. Better saved in the scrapbook than going mouldy in the cupboard

Here is my finished latest painting

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
