Mixed Media Monday - Something New





This week Barbara is guest hosting on Mixed Media Monday, and chose "something new" to challenge us with. This could not have been more opportune for me, with the arrival of my first grandchild, Lucy, last Tuesday! (See the post below this one). So, of course, Lucy and being a grandmother is new for me. But the real "something new" is scrapbooking - that is something I always said I'd NEVER do, but I really wanted to do something to commemorate the arrival of Lucy - I hope her parents like it! It's made in a wooden book cut into the shape of wings.
