Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi, and a big warm welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.
Also a big warm welcome to anyone who just pops in to have a look at my work.

Made this 4"x4" Valentine's Album this morning for my DH ready for tomorrow.
Sorry it's rather picture heavy.

 Front cover.

Inside front part.

 Back cover.

The cover of this is 4.25" in size.
Made with a Snippets of  grey board from the back cover of a water colour pad.
The paper was Snippets left over from a valentine's card I made for the mawtt challenge. 
The ribbon is also a Snippet.
The inside pages are 4" made out of a folded piece of 12"x12" red card. 
The lovely images in the pockets and on the covers were given to me as a part of a lovely prize from Janice of 
If you have the time it's well worth a visit to her blog as she makes such wonderful creations. 
I matted the images inside on more Snippets of white card.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
It means such a lot to me that you like what I have created.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

What a gorgeous album Jenny!! I love the vibrant palette, it's so cheery! The covers are wonderful, that ribbon is brilliant, love that! Such great shapes, the circle panels with the scallops and all the hearts really creates an interesting and lovely design for the inside pockets!

I had to giggle when you said this was a 'photo heavy post' and then there were only 5 photographs. After all, I have about 15 photos on every one of my posts, lol. hugs to you :)
