The Gifts are delivered

This was the secret project I had been working on for my mum and mother-in-law.

The beauty of the Creative Memories digital scrapbooking and calendar making is the calendar's can be custom designed so I started mine from the beginning of this month.

I love this photo of this cheeky girl. The digital scrap booking package is so easy to use and the best part about it is its portable. Perfect for a busy lifestyle where it takes me a long time to set up my scrapbooking gear - not to mention having to wait till the littlie's are in bed. I purchased my package from here. Its no trouble to jump on the computer and start scrapping.

I still do traditional scrapping with my 7yr old once a month. Its fun to do something lovely together however this is perfect as a relatively easy and quick gift.

My almost-78-year old mum has been so ill for weeks with shingles in the eye and side of her head that it was lovely to see a smile on her face when she received this belated Mother's Day present. My mother-in-law also appreciated hers and spent a long time considering where it would go - I suggested the laundry but she wouldn't have a bar of that!!

Happy Stitching, (and scrapping)
