Hello friends
I have a scrapbook page to share with you today.
This has just appeared on the Spellbinders Idea Gallery
I clustered together Jewel Flowers and Flourishes,
cutting Exquisite Circles in half and popping them behind the photo frame and more.
Details of all the dies, papers etc can be found here.
I really enjoyed putting this page together, it features me and Mitchell on his 18th Birthday. 
He is going to be 19 soon...oh my where does the time go!?
Did any of you catch Kirstie's Vintage Home on Channel 4 on Thursday?
It featured Lisa Comfort, the lady that wrote the book I reviewed recently.
I enjoyed the programme - I'm looking at some old furniture in a new light now!

Please stop by tomorrow...I'm doing something that I haven't done for ages!
Take care friends - enjoy your Saturday.

Yes Christine, where does time go. As you get older it seems to whizz by. Your scrapbook page is adorable and you look so proud of your son.

What a lovely photo of you both. I cant believe how time is passing especially this year. Was talking to hubby about his jumper last night and he got in January, I honestly thought it was only a couple of months ago that he got it!!!! Hope you have a great weekend. xxxx

Hi Christine,
such a super scrapbook page something to treasure always. This makes me feel my age as my youngest is 42 now.
It's only my body that tells me so, in my mind I still feel so young.
Have a wonderful crafty afternoon.
Have you got a class this afternoon?
If so what yummy cake is on offer.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Christine, sorry I didnt pick up Friday Die day yesterday, thank you for sharing, some lovely ideas, will look out for the dies in your Amazon shop.
Love the scrapbook page today, I can understand why your title is 'Proud', and I also ask the same question. Must agee with Jenny, I'm young at heart but my body tells me different.Thats when scapbooking comes to the rescue,just keep looking back to remind ones self that we were all young once - in appearance at least! Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x
