IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS

I've been playing with our fabulous "CHIPPIES"



creating with IMAGINARIUM DESIGNS is so much fun!!

chipboard shapes I have used....
2 different size "HEARTS"
one covered with paper & one stitched on with black cotton.
"the decorative FRAME"
I cut this in half to create more interest & dimension around the photo....
the word "LOVE" which I repeated twice on the LO.

My page is primarily black & white with a dash of pink to highlight the buttons on Ella's dress..

7 BOYS & 6 GIRLS ... dad was the 4th born ...

Dad's mother gave birth to 7 children but died when DAD was 8 ..
her sister ( dad's auntie) came to live in and look after the children... later grandpa married her and they had 6 children..
but sadly she died having the last child JOHN ... who now is the only one living .... he is aged 92...

THERE IS MUCH MORE BUT I WONT BORE YOU WITH THE DETAILS.
