she says... he said:

I saw this questionnaire on Facebook the other day and it gave me an idea for scrapbooking.  And with a little editing a questionnaire about Dad too. This has given us all a lot of laughs.  And lots of warm heart glow too.

This is inspired by the very lovely Wilna Furtensberg's class on Craftsy.

The templates I made were from lighter weight watercolour paper than hers, and they weren't thick enough to use as embossing plates with a cuttlebug. So I took a different slant to the project by using the templates directly onto my LO. I've brushed them them with gold ink, downsized the LO to A4 and not used any watercolours at all. Dripping the Indian Ink was nerve racking.

I've dreamt of this LO and I was nervous that it wouldn't measure up irl to what I had pre-visualised. I think its pretty close. :)
