Happy Birthday Shirley!

I have very short wee post for you today, bit like me really lol :) short and wee!

I have a lovely friend who I met back in the day, when I worked at The Stamping Ground and Scrapbook Station.  We discovered while chatting one day, that her sister lived across the street from me when I was growing up in Christchurch, before we moved to Timaru - Mum remembers her too!

Yesterday was Shirleys birthday, and in honour of her love of all bright colours I altered this wooden box using some Prima Paisley Road papers, the last of my stash, with matching mini album and gift tag.  The mini album I thought could be put to use as a brag book about her grandchildren, and yes Ive used more Prima packaging to make the album and base of my tag, and some more of the notecards.

Hope everyone had a lovely long weekend, thanks for popping by!


  1. Megan, this is just beautiful. I love all the bright colours with the green packaging. Just beautiful.

    Just incase you haven't seen it, I posted in Scrappin Patch blog that I received the goodies you sent me and can't wait to use the flowers.
    I'm going to save them for something special.

  2. Oh that's lovely, I'm sure Shirley loves it! A brag book for her grandchildren is a great idea :)
