NOT a card ~ A Scrapbook Page~~
Well, as an avid Scrapbooker at heart I have thought really hard about this~~ Should I put a page on my Blog?
So I started to go through the ones I have (and thats alot!) Which one to choose, it took ages, I just did not know which one to pick.
I saw a challenge asking for "quotes". It said you could choose any crafting project, so I thought this was ideal.
I chose this page in the end because it brought back lovely memories of my Son's Christening day. I made his cake that day and was pleased with the comments I recieved.
I have to confess that was a while ago now~~Matthew is 18 in four months time~
How time flies!!
I loved making his cake, and I loved designing this Scrapbook page for it to go onto, it made a change from using people and places on a LO, (lay out).
As the photo was Bears having a picnic, I decided to go on line and find the song The Teddy Bears Picnic, "If you go down to the woods today, your sure of a big surprise"etc...Music by John W Bratton in the 1900s,and Lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy in the 1930s. I printed the song off, and then cut it out in strips before adding to the LO.
Hope you like it and hopefully it will give you ideas on what to do with your lovely photo's.
Scrapbooking your photo's is such a wonderful thing to do, before I did it, mine were in the loft in an old cardboard box, being looked at every five years or so. Does that ring a bell?
Not anymore, all my favorites are pride of place in my albums, and they get looked at on a regular basis. People love to look through them, unlike when you give them a handful of photo's to look at.!!
I Love this hobby, I am currently working on book number 48!! (not all mine I might add, some have been other people's memories~~)
Below is the challenge I have entered this page into:
