A big Thank You for all the lovely comments you leave for me, I appreciate every single one.
Straight after Christmas I made the decision to start a Scrapbook about "Me"!
Eh... I was not sure I actually wanted to do this (I hate photo's of myself), but the very talented Mel Heaton made one for her Son, after hearing her story I just thought, Yes! that's what I want to do for my Children too. So a few days ago I started collecting photographs and making notes of the Journaling I wanted to put with each picture.
I am lucky that my Mum took a few photo's of me as a baby and toddler, (I was born in 1960, so don't think everyone had a camera!). Although I don't have loads of pictures, I still have several throughout my childhood. Some of the earlier photo's are Black and white (which I love).
The photo on this Layout was taken about 9-10 years ago, the location is very near where we live, we often took the Children there on a weekend to play ball and run off some energy. It also gave Chris and I a chance to have a sit and a cuddle!!
I have followed the Sketch from Creative Scrappers, It was nice to make the Bunting with this Die-Namics bunting die, I used up load of scraps of paper for this.
Unfortunately the papers I have used have the name on the reverse and I did not look at it before I stuck it down!!
The doily is a brand new die I bought Wednesday made by X Cut called "Vintage Notes Doily", this will be useful in both layouts and cards. The other embellishments are from Basic Grey's Marlane collection.
You cannot tell from picture one, but on picture two you will see I have added some hidden journaling.
