What a Busy Month July Has Been (Part One)

What a busy month it has been at Boz Towers.  My grandchildren and DIL came over from Canada and visitied all the rellies.  We had the pleasure of their company for nearly a week so I planned lots of crafting for the girls, Ellie and Lucy and something diiferent for Joe.

The girls wanted to make a little memory book for their mum and dad and a card for their other nan and grandad.  They each had their own ideas about what to make and we had great fun selecting all the embellishments too.  Lucy and Ellie also decorated a box each to keep the memory books safe.

Here's two of their memory books and even their daddy's was decorated with plenty of pearls.

On Lucy's card for her grandad she chose a paper from Tim Holtz Vintage paper pack and an image from Doolicraft from my stash as are the buttons and ribbons.  She inked up the edges with some Antique Linen distress ink.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and Lucy used an SU scallop oval punch with it.

On Ellie's card she was quite specific in having  her grandad's age so we cut the numbers on the Cricut. The sentiment is computer generated and we cut this with a Spellbinders Grommet Tags die.

The girls found a couple of LOTV images and made their cards for their nan and used papers from stash and decorated them both with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and ribbon from stash too. Lucy added a Marianne die cut too.  Ellie chose to make a paper flower using the Spellbinders Rose Creations.

Their grandparents were delighted and want to frame them.  Clever girls!!!

I would like to enter Lucy's card in the following:
