Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge

Evening everybody.  Gosh, am I a happy bunny tonight or WHAT!!  I am typing this post out on my own newly fixed laptop, returned only today....YAAYYYY!  Also an engineer from British Gas spent the whole day here sorting out the boiler.......we now have BOTH central heating and hot water after about a month of waiting for this to be fixed.......DOUBLE YAAYYYY!!!  Big thankyou to my SIL and blogging buddy Jo for the use of her bath over this period!  I can't tell you how sick I was of boiling the kettle for a wash LOL!!

I have a scrapbook page to show you which will be entered into the MCFC, their theme this week being...VINTAGE.  This page is for my husband's family heritage album.  I have already completed an album for his mum some time ago but Pete wants an identical one for himself, though some changes will be made to his - I just won't tell him lol!

The card and papers were from my stash.  In my eagerness to complete this page (one of many needed to complete the album), I cut of the title strip and binned it so don't know which make it is, sorry!  The stamped flower was a stamped image I had in my stash from a friend.  The title tags were completed on my laptop using angelots script.  The ribbons and lace were purchased from local haberdashery store.

Thankyou for stopping by.  Take care and wrap up warm.

Wonderful page Mel, how long has this taken you to get sorted?? It will be just as fabulous as Doreen's album when finished. Though I can talk it's been 2 years since I finished my two brothers scrapbooks of my dad, and I've hardly made a start on mine or my mum's. Hard to get motivated when your not a scrapper.

Thanks for joining us at MCFC.
