Eve and Matthew Playing~

Hello Girls

Hope I find you all well.
With all my jobs done and out the way, I have had time today for a play.
I was desperate to do a bit of Scrapbooking, not done any for ages and I was beginning to get withdrawal symptoms.LOL

I have entered the sketch over at Scrap365 with my Layout. Did you know Scrap 365 is a fantastic New Scrapbook magazine and is just perfect if you want to have a go at making some beautiful pages for all your memories.

This is a really old photo of my two children, the date on the back said 6.8.1993. My Daughter Eve is about two and a half on the photo, and last weekend she celebrated her 21st Birthday, so quite a while ago when this photo was taken. I love the way they were always playing together, she was just so fantastic with him, don't think she ever resented him for one minute, she was like a little mother hen (nothing has changed!) and Matthew has always loved her to bits, even now at 19 he asks her opinion on such alot of subjects, I am so proud of both of them, they are lovely children.

I have followed the sketch at 365 and have used a sheet of MME paper called Hip Hooray (spotty paper) and also a sheet of Dream street paper called Fresh.
This is the first time I have made one of these pleated flowers and I am quite pleased at how it has turned out and was much easier to make than i thought.
The chipboard "Laugh" is by K&co and I have used Inks and a number mask in a couple of the corners. The small circles are created with a wine cork!
