Shhh, Its a Secret!!

Firstly I will apologise for being 'blog-absent' for weeks. I've been busy with easter, visitors, and sewing kids clothes. I made ponchos!!. But I have enjoyed visiting all my favourite blogs today, I have missed so much.

Well I have been able to catch up on some scrapping. My brother-in-law is turning 50 and, using the Kaisercraft 50 album, I have made him one. Now this is a secret, so dont tell him. I have photos attached. Hopefully they'll appear in page order. I only had 2 small old photos and after scanning them and blowing them up, the quality was terrible, so using Photoshop Elements I converted the photos using a 'stamp' effect. I am quite impressed with this and hope to use it again. As for the information and other 1959 images, they were downloaded from the internet. I also added an extra page of acetate and masked the number 50 on it using the remaining paper after cutting the front cover 50 out. It was actually quite difficult to make a masculine album as I tend to do 'girlie' because I only have girls. When I wanted to add a flower, I had to rethink. Great challenge.

Hope you like.
