Happy Day Scrapping!

What a lovely day I have had! A real me day and no visitors, though I am a 'me' person today I wanted to scrap, do believe my mojo may be back from the pool at Bali with another teamie LOL!!
Here are the lace flowers I made last night with one altered button I did try!!
The buttons need glueing and sewing ! The other three I am using on my Jan minibook.
Here is the 'raw' front cover with thew title which I think I will highlight with glossy accents
I am using all old stash which I am finding difficult as I don't want to stroke this anymore...why did I buy it? :( It is a Scrap to go pad from Brenda Walton with papers, stickers and alphas and tags which I bought when I first started scrapping in 2006!)
Now I am ready to cover the envelopes and look for the photos for each page on my dear friend Carol who was widowed on 3rd April 2010 and her brave journey with New Beginnings last year
I feel so privileged to do this and so admire her guts and determination to live her life again
My quote for this album from Karen is "Every New Beginning comes from some other beginnings end"
Oops have realised my front cover spelling of beginnings is incorrect....well I do have a problem with spelling :(... Off to alter my title now!!
