WOYWW - Six Generations of Flutterby Women!

Phew! Finally finished the project for my Mum, for mothering Sunday this weekend.  I decided to make a mini album showing as many generations of us girls as I could find pic's for.  This is what I came up with -

The colours are a bit brighter than in the pics.  The BPs on the front and vintage photos are from a K & Co pack "Life's Journey" which I was given with some other kit.  The ribbon is an Anita "Everyday" one, and the rest of the bits are from my stash.

The first pic is my Great-great-grandmother, with her daughter, my Great Grandma, opposite.

Then comes my Grandmother, followed by my Mum (with Dad on his 21st birthday).

Then there's me on my (2nd) wedding day (15 yrs today!) with my two gorgeous girls,
Jenny and Kate, who are now beautiful women of 31 and 29.

The back cover opens out into three, with a lovely computer-generated quote from the Psalms,
which is very apt for mothering Sunday.

Last but not least, I made a card for my brother Mike's birthday on Friday (but he's no April Fool!)

As you can see, it's an easel card using a recycled pic that is just him
(or how he'd like to be, life and work permitting!!)
Sorry, I just couldn't get rid of the flash spot, despite 3 or 4 attempts from different angles.
The sentiment was computer-generated.
I can't wait to invest in more dies next pay day - I'm in danger of OD'ing on this one!!

Night night All! xx
