Morning Everyone.

Today I am feeling a bit down and dreading tomorrow. Tomorrow is the second anniversary of the death of my lovely Dad. Although he was suffering from several medical conditions, he died suddenly from the one of the conditions that no one was at all concerned about, and it took us all completely by surprise. I still miss him terribly, so tomorrow won't be great. I would normally visit Mum with some flowers, but she is going away for a few days at the weekend so won't be there to appreciate them. Instead I decided to make her a little something that she could take with her if she wants to.

I remembered a program I got ages ago to create photo pages laid out in such a way that the A4 sheet could be cut into from each end and scored to fold into the inside of the book. I have seen similar instructions to create photo books from 12X12 paper...but this allows you to print the photos straight onto the pages. The kit also included the chip board covers. I hadn't got around to using the kit before, you know how it is! I have to say I was pleased with the effect, the book looks professional and sturdy. I will take it up to Mum tomorrow to check she is ok.

  3. Thinking of you - no one is like your own Dad. Hope your mum likes the present - maybe you should do one for yourself too! Hoping you can celebrate the memories too tomorrow.
