Meet George.....also tags and bookmarks...

This is George, he is a baby Tawny Owl....he is one of two and his brother is called Fred....(children are big fans of Harry Potter hence Fred and George)...unfortunately they were found in a barn and their mother was dead...so we were called and went to pick them up....they are living in the kitchen at the moment but will move outside when they are bigger....Tawny owls are nocturnal so when I am off to bed,they are up , wanting to be fed....needless to say not a lot of sleep is happening for me at the moment...but they are so gorgeous!!!



These are my entries for the bookmark swap...the theme was fashion so this is what I came up with...the winter design is my new Sugar Nellie stamp, its probably best used for christmas but I couldn't resist giving it an airing..





These are my tags for the tag swap over on the cb forum....I have used basic grey papers and sugar nellie stamps, the one on the left is a new stamp for me....it is gorgeous I think...

I have been busy today, my parents have been married 40 years this year and I have finally started a wedding scrapbook for them...its all done in black and white with an occasional splash of ruby because thats 40 years apparently.....These are my parents 40 years ago,they haven't changed much at all, just older obviously and greyer....



This is my hubby, cute isn't he ....its his birthday this month and I decided to make him a scrapbook as well as my parents, I really hope I can finish them both by the 16th...lol...heres hoping...the other page is Kim with his father, these are rare pictures as his father died when he was four years old......I also have pictures of his sister to add, she sadly passed away last year..
