The Green Umbrella Mini Book

A Happy Weekend to You!!
I hope you are having a good one.

Following on from the SCRAP365 Bloghop this week I thought it would be fun to share something that I made for the magazine quite some time ago. This was back in 2011 infact.
I made a special mini book for my sweet sister, Sarah-Jane.
I love that girl to bits!
I managed to get my hands on an old copy of her favourite childhood book 'The Green Umbrella'.
I gesso'd the pages, misted and added bits and pieces, some photos, some notes and quotes and then I had a very special little book to give to her.






Here are just a few pages.
Us, then and now. (I'm the older one by 5yrs).















I'm so glad we are so close. She really is my best friend.
I love this little book.

Have you got the latest issue of SCRAP365 yet?
It's the new bi monthly larger version. I hope you like it : )
There's some beautiful features in there.

My hubby is running me a bubblebath, so I'm off now.
It's Louis' 11th birthday and it's been a busy one. I'm going for a soak whilst her plays on the ps3 for 30mins.

Thanks for stopping by xxx
