Just like buses eh?



Ok so I don't make a post for ages and now I have added two. I have been busy as Sue launched a weekend challenge last weekend...although we have had all week to finish...so today I finished my Matchbook Album. Sue has given step by step instructions on how to make it on the forum, and I had never made something like this. It took me ages to decide on some photos - but anyway here is the end result, I hope you like it. Sadly, I am not as skilled on this 'scrapbooking' stuff, but these little albums are more my style.


















I have also made some cards for some of the challenges - but I think we have enough pics on this posts before you all drift off!

On a completely different subject - as some of you know I have started constructing a family tree. Following the census records is easy these days as it is all on the net. Well yet another coincidence has occurred we are staying on a farm for our summer holidays that used to be owned by a relative - a little distant I must admit - but still a relative. I couldn't believe the coincidence! The family name in this instance is 'Heard', working along my grandmother's tree, through all of the ladies...so a name change each generations...Dayman, Hobbs, then Heard.

On the card making front - I am enjoying the videos on the Hero Arts blog - have you seen them?
