I had a little time to scrapbook last weekend, my mum and I are putting together a family album of pictures from her childhood and I’m loving working with these old photos.The first page uses a sketch from Pagemaps for an Imaginisce sketch contest. (my mum’s the little one in the middle!)
The second page, which has photos of more cousins is for the challenge at Sketch N Scrap using their sketch
After starting to scrapbook about fifteen years ago, I've had a long period when my crafting has focused on card making and inky, stamping messiness, leaving the scrapbook papers gathering in a corner, so I really am still finding my feet and style again. I have tons of paper, much of which is now very dated so I can see a session with the inks and paints happening soon!
I’ve used a combination of new and old stash on these pages – the copyright date on the striped paper was 2004 ! I’m happier with the first page than the second, but it’s a learning process and I’m having fun !Just had to show a close up of this photo as I love it - we’re not sure though what the dark shadow is ! Thanks so much for stopping over – if you have any suggestions for my layouts I’d love to hear them ! Esther xx
