A final page

This is the third and final page I made at the Bloggers Crafting Weekend [though I did make some other things as well].....still using the SJ Crafts 'extended' kit.
I love this family portrait taken on Boxing Day......it's extremely rare we ever take family photos like this......so I'm so grateful we decided to take this one......the last ever one of all 4 generations of our family......the photo is going into a lovely frame I was given for Christmas.....but I wanted to make a page for my 2012 album as well.
The little metal sentiment embellishments are Making Memories ones I've had forever.....so I loved being able to finally find the perfect place for them.
Thankfully.....no more snow today.....the roads are clear......so DD2 will not have a 2 hour,5 mile trudge through freezing snow to get to work!!!

What a gorgeous family portrait Jackie. A treasured memory for years to come, I really must find a moment to do the same.
Thanks for your comment on my blog, it was a fab release right? How funny you are the other way around! I think it's the whole 2 needle thing for me that I struggle to get my head around. It felt like I didn't have enough hands and fingers. I can see how knitting provides a lot more opportunities with patterns though, so I hope to keep at it :)
Have a lovely week.

A wonderful portrait, and that kit certainly did well for the weekend of scrapping. I think I finally ditched those metal embellishments from MM. You did find the perfect use for them.

So "final page" has a double resonance, then with that lovely family portrait. It's a special one.

The monochrome photo is so beautifully set off by your band of grey and those pretty papers - and four generations! How special is that ...
