Scrapbook Gift for Heather & Nicholas

Another scrapbook gift I gave this year was this one for Heather and Nicholas with 20 layout's of their children, Simon and the triplets - Oliver, Hannah and Lucy. I have been meaning to post this since Christmas, it took some time to put together, but here it is:

1. A page I made in 2011 of Simon - photo taken in 1999 by Grandma (Marion)
A challenge from the Online Scrapbooking Weekend. - 'A Colour Story Challenge'.
The challenge was to create a project in red, white and aqua!

2. This was an early Scrapaholix Retreat Class page -lots of hand stitching and Sweetwater papers.
Simon in Grandma's laundry bin!

3. I think this was a Page Map, created before my blog started, using Basic Grey - Oh Baby Boy papers and some Doodlebug Design Stickers.

4. Another Page Map
Baby Lucy Georgina also taken on our first visit to see the triplets in UCLH Special Care Baby Unit.
Papers are a mix of Making Memories and Basic Grey

5. ... and last of the three Baby Hannah Elizabeth on our first visit to see the triplets in UCLH Special Care Baby Unit. She was also the smallest of the three.
These papers are Scenic Route.

6. My daughter Catherine with her cousin baby Oliver, visit visit to the babies at home.
Another page Map, Scrapaholix kit with Daisy Bucket papers.

7. This one is me with Oliver on the same visit. Not sure why there are none of the girls, although to this day four years later they still prove camera shy, very difficult to get them to pose for a photo, so you have to catch them out! Lucy and I have a bit of an ongoing game!
Papers are Basic Grey and Urban Lily
