For Mum

This year I was broke. No surprise there.

I had a large leather bound photo album which I'd been meaning to do something with but never really got round to it.

I decided to use the photo album and make a few digital scrapbook layouts to put into it as a present for my mum on Mother's Day.

She actually cried when I gave it to her.

And then my dad teared a little when he saw it later that day.

I'm to tell you that he teared up in a very manly "I've just been kicked between the legs" kind of way.

There you go dad, masculinity remains firmly intact....

And, of course, the layout which inspired them all. It was created for me by Janmary and its my mum's favourite. You should take a dander over there and see some more of her work. Her layouts really are beautiful.


  1. Those are some really nice layouts. What do you use for an application? Photoshop? Elements? Illustrator? Something NOT made by Adobe?

  3. Awww you see a gift from the heart, that's what us mums like best! Your Toots is gorgeous - but you don't need me to tell you that! xx

  4. You have started down the slippery slope to digi-scrapping! There will be no stopping you now :)

    I may have already mentioned this before, but Ikea Goddess is the BEST blog for seeking out the best digi freebies daily.

    Thanks for the link too.

  5. Those really are beautiful.
    Where do you get the actual "paper" and layouts?


Your comments make me smile. I love that you stopped by.
