My Ekka Entry - Page One

Page One 
Page One is a fold out  mini album and devoted to my Dad and Mum.
As you can see the album folds out into many layers .
I have embellished the front page with a Graphic 45 tag onto a chipboard  frame and added a charm chain.
I have also added a photo taken at the Ekka. I loved the way they displayed  my entry with a mirror behind it so all of the case could be seen. Sorry the quality of the photo is not better.

Brown Bear

To finish the week I thought I would show you my little Brown Bear.
We had the misfortune to be held up with a landslide across the highway on one of our trips interstate so Brown Bear was hand stitched in the car while we waited for the road  to be cleared.
He is only a small bear, about 6" tall.


Thank you for visiting my blog this week
I hope you have enjoyed it.
