Blog Candy Winner and 21st Scrapbook

I don't know where the week has gone, and I haven't blogged at all. But I have been busy creating! My DD Aimee, had a 21st birthday on Sunday (where have the years gone-only seems like yesterday when she was born!), and to celebrate I made her an 8 x 8 scrapbook of her life so far. I had a blast making it, and there was paper and glue and stickers all over the place! I won't show you it all as some is just photos of her friends through the years, and grandparents etc. But here are a couple of pages I particularly liked. The Paris connection is her birthday present from me, when she and I can arrange a date that suit us both! I used stamps that I was given from Absolument Scrap when we visited them in Paris last November., and I also used some of Tim's gorgeous idea-ology bits and pieces. I am not sure that the pictures do the pages justice.
I now have to make one for my son, who has intimated that he would like one!
On another note, I have chosen the winner of the blig candy, and the number on the random generator is:
Number 11 . I added the followers and the comments and the winner is....
Shaz. Congratulations, and don't forget to email me your address.
This post seems to have taken me forever as I kept getting sidetracked...the wonders of the net!

Clare, the "stuff" in the pocket are the ears to her pink rabbit which is in the picture! She still has him minus the ears, hence the poem which I also made into a stamp for her too :)

Great pages Jennie! Does Aimee still have her bunny? My 16 year old son still has a little teddy who is looking a bit threadbare these days!

Well done Shaz! xx
