Grandmotherly Glamour

I thought I would do some scrapping, and actually get a LO done.. I have had these pics of my Gorgeous Grandmother Margaret Nesbit (we call her "Mardi") for a while, and wanted to scrap them. These are shots when she was modelling in her 20's, and she was just so beautiful. Amazingly enough, she doesn't like the pictures, and gets very embarrased when I asked to see them, but I hope she will like what I have done with them.
They are very like her, and to me, she hasn't changed a bit since then. She is beautiful inside and out, and I adore and look up to her.

What do you think?

Update from me

Well, it has been far too long since my last post, almost 3 months! Time does fly..
I guess things have been a little hectic of late. We have enrolled Emily for next year into Kindergartern at Central Coast Grammar School (so yes, we will be poor for the next 13 years.. then Uni after that.. sigh..)

I went to the Craft Show at Newcastle on the weekend with the lovely Lisa (aka Scrapwitch) we spent too much money, but had a ball. Here's a pic from the day, courtesy of Lisa's blog :)

I have been working on my resume, as with the Westpac / ST George merger (we are now the 4th biggest bank in the world!), everyone in my State has to reapply for their jobs, YUK! SO wish me luck, it's very nerve racking.

I have been a bit slack taking pics of my scrapping of late, most of it has been CJ's.. I have just been so busy!

But I did win the January sketch challenge for a card I made over at the SM forum, which was a nice surprise..

So take care, and my thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the bushfires. Stay safe xoxoxo
