Mum's Birthday Present

Hi all.
Here are the pics of the Expansion Album that I made for my Mum for her birthday.
I have used 'Elegant Soiree' DSP, this is very beautiful DSP.
I blogged the matching card HERE.
This is the outside, I have used Beautiful Wings Embosslits through my Big Shot.
It Embosses and cuts at the same time is that fab or what? I also added Dazzling Diamonds and I very pleased with outcome.
I found some old photos of a weekend we had in Arrowtown, Central Otago, New Zealand.
It was October 1994 pre children days. My Mum and Dad had travelled down to Dunedin (we lived there at the time) then we headed to Arrowtown. We had a great weekend exploring the area.
We camped in the camping ground, in the photos we are playing on a  4 way seesaw come merry go round, we had a great time playing on it lots of laughter. I'm not in the photos I must have been the photographer.
Supplies List
Ink: Soft Suede and Baja Breeze.
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Elegant Soiree DSP.
Extras: Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds and Basic Pearls.
My thoughts and Prayers are with all the families involved in the Pike River Mine Accident, My cousin's husband is one of the men trapped. We are praying for the very best outcome.
Have a great Sunday.


  1. What a gorgeous gift for your Mum, Helen. Our thoughts and prayers are also with all those involved with the mining accident; may it be resolved quickly and successfully.

  2. what a fabulous gift & great piccies - looks like you were all having fun

  3. You've done a lovely job Helen. Love the colours you chose.

  4. Helen I love those colours too. I read once "Part of being a good adult is to be half a child", I've always loved reading that because I like to have fun too. Your photo's indicate some healthy adults!!! Remembering the miners and families in prayer.

  5. Not being a s'booker of any kind, I doff my cap to those who put together amazing creations such as these. It looks fantastic and a wonderful gift. I see all the cutting out and layering!!!! Love the Elegant Sioree paper.
