Palette #99.....The last of the Maja Design Palettes.  And its another goodie!

Lovely and boyish.....
I actually did this one in advance....then forgot I did it, and never posted it!
How silly was that?

Here is the sketch

and the card for this week.

and the layout I found on my computer which I forgot I did~  So not used to being organised and doing something in advance......LOL....I am usually a fly by the seat of my pants kinda gal!!!!

This was my dear Dads profession before he retired a few years ago.  He worked doing this from when he lost his dad to drowning while fishing, when Dad was 16.  He took over and fished professionally until he was 60 and retired.

 So there you go.
Thanks so much Maja Design for your sponsorship For the month of February!  It was great to have your designers Guest Design for the month too!

Look out for Details of our next Sponsor for March !

TCR Palette #98

We release Palette #98 today.   Getting closer and closer to that 100 mark!!!!!

Go visit THE COLOR ROOM to see what the Designers did with this palette.

We used the MAJA DESIGN range "Ska vi ta en Fika?" for this palette.  My goodness how lovely it was to play with this massively diverse range form our sponsors this month.

The sketch

and the card sketch

So here is my project using these gorgeous papers from Maja Design.
An album that I created especially for my Grandma, who was 90 last month!

Each page was folded in such a way as to create pockets.

I wrote a memory I had of spending time with my Grandma in Darwin 
each year as a kid on the fronts and backs of tags.

Other tags just had quotes I found about the importance of Grandma's.....

Right in the very back, I tied a little mini book inside.  I found the speech I wrote and read out at her 80th Birthday celebrations 10 years ago and wrote a little section at the end saying how much had changed over the past 10 years.  Most noticably that she got so many more Great Grandchildren over that time span!  I am so glad I kept what I wrote for her all those years ago!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a wonderful weekend all!
