2nd August forgery

Here is my latest LO from Saturdays crop using the August Counterfeit Kit.

The story of the LO is a good one... and it's what Scrapbooking is all about.. recording everyday events!

Back in May you may remember we held a pre-wedding garden party in honour of my DS and now DILs wedding in June. We invited many family and friends and the day was glorious..the first decent day of summer shone down on us..but... in typical English fashion... the evenings turned cold in the spring air and my dear Mum (who's 83) was getting decidedly colder and colder. So, my DS went and got his coat for her to wear but as the evening wore on she got colder still and we went and got a blanket for her so we could watch the sun set from the end of our garden.. as you can see by the shadows on the photos. She was determined to sit it out until the sun went down. then my DS2 and she got the giggles and I managed to take this lovely series of photos of them both..it was such a special day!

I made this LO on Saturday but on Sunday I noticed that the latest challenge on the CKCB blog was to incorporate something hidden so I have managed to slip some journalling in about the story of the day and this event behind the middle photograph with a concealed tag... I love these photos and couldn't wait to scrap them.
