... since my last post. There have not been enough hours in the day for the past month. I have been scrapping though - helping out with finishing a couple of albums - one for a friend's son's 21st and then a " This is Your Life' Album for a teacher retiring after 41 years at the same school. Both were well received by the recipients and that makes everything so worthwhile. As they were both for males it also gave me a chance to do a different style of scrapbooking for a change - not a flower in sight.
Today I have been at the Embellish It Christmas Crop and enjoyed catching up on scrapping friends and being inspired by the projects and cards everyone was working on. Thank you Tania for a great day and I was lucky enough to win the lucky draw for attending - a Kaisercraft Flourish Tree. On the way home I bought some paint so will show you the finished product when it is done.
I decided to use some 'Karen Foster' Christmas papers purchased last year and scrap a photo from almost 46 years ago when we got a new baby sister for Christmas. Between catching up on everyone and perusing/purchasing the Embellish It goodies this page took 5 hours to complete and it has only got three things on it due to the lovely paper which I didn't want to cover up as it was pretty self explanatory.
Next I was on to the Prima BAP for November - unfortunately too late for the monthly competition. These photos of a friend's grand daughter were too cute not to scrap and worked perfectly with the lovely Prima Papers. And no... it is not twins - just a double take as I didn't have a landscape photo so used two of the same photo to make a landscape orientation to fit the sketch. I used a Martha Stewart Punch and cut out the flower flourishes from Prima Paper. This one went together in half the time of the first page lol.
