Saturday Stampers - Treasures

The challenge this week was Treasure. What do we treasure. I decided to make a weekend project out of the challenge & put together this minibook all about my BIL, Nigel. I treasure the memories I have of him & the things that we shared when he was alive. There was more & I might add extra pages. I almost ran out of paper as I had made this from the remains of a paper kit that I made my last two scrap layouts from. The pages are cardboard dividers from an index box. The sort you can pick up from any stationery shop.

All the pages are stamped with clocks to inidicate time as most of these pictures are very old & none were taken with a digital camera. I had to print them small to keep a reasonable quality to them.

I have made a slideshow of the book before it was put together & it is in my gallery. I was hoping the pictures were quite close up but they seem not to be!!!
Nigel was a bundle of fun & never missed an opportunity to do party tricks such as balloon dancing & have a laugh.
