leaving school memory book

just finished my latest project it's a book for amie who leaves comp this year to go to study drama and the arts
she wanted the book for all her friends and teachers to sign when she leaves school in may
she is a very talented young lady and is playing the lead roll in the school musical production based on the queen songs called we will rock you. she is a real rock chic so chose a design to suit her personality
used the DCWV rockstar hope you like it

had a play with my embossing pastes the other day and framed it used the gold embossing paste and a dream weaver stencil of the bare trees (love this stencil)
just used a cheap photo frame which cost 30p then used gold rubbon to colour it makes quite a nice picture for a total cost of about 50p

mom has settled after the rush into hospital last week with her heart acting up. they said it was probably the strain of going to hospital every other day for the iron infusion it was just too much for her they said she really needs the transfusion. so after the doc contacting the hospital for us she has just had appointment for Monday to get her blood transfusion thank goodness lets hope this will pick her up a bit as we so want to take her away in march for a holiday as it's probably gonna be her last so want her to be able to enjoy it so fingers crossed for a good result she has been through such a lot it's seems never ending
anyway will catch you all again soon
take care
