Another Box of Roses in the Romance and Roses Colourway

Last weekend was the engagement party and birthday of my friend's sons and today it is their sister Eilidh's turn to celebrate her birthday.  This is another busy weekend for the Campbell family as some of them are in Glasgow because Granny and Grandad Campbell from Stornoway are across to celebrate Grandad's special birthday.  If all went according to plan then Eilidh should be celebrating her birthday in Glasgow today.  Here are a few photos from last weekend which include Eilidh.

 The Campbell family including Eilidh's dog Rhylee

This is Eilidh's box of roses.

It has the same layout and colourway as the one I made for our Elaine although, along with a couple of minor changes, the patterned papers have been swapped around.  If you'd like to know more about how the cards were made and what was used then click on this link Birthday Girl.  Here are a few more photos of Eilidh's card.

We had a glorious day here yesterday and I finally started clearing weeds.  Hopefully I'll get around to planting some real flowers in their place however, as I'm not green fingered, I think I'd still prefer to be making paper ones as at least they don't need any maintenance.

Thanks for reading today
