First Page for AGES!!!

Hi everyone,

You may have noticed a distinct lack of scrapbooking around here just lately - well, in fact no scrap pages at all since I stopped playing for the design teams I was on. It's strange and I can't quite explain it ... ok, so I've been really really busy, but I LOVE to scrap. Weird ... anyway, when I saw this sketch over at Scrap 365 ...


... I felt inspired to jump back in :o)

Here's what I came up with ...


The picture shows my son Tom back in 1984 on a day out in Cornwall with his Granny. Isn't he sweet?!

Here's what I used -
  • G45 Mother Goose collection patterned papers
  • Wood veneer chevrons and happy face from Happy Scatter
  • Dove Craft "Curiosity Corner" wooden frame
  • Doily and twine from Papermania
  • Woodgrain enamel dots
  • Assorted diecuts and chippies from my stash
  • Vintage buttons
  • Circles cut from denim and corrugated cardboard
  • Blue and green mists
  • Black Precision Pen from Studio Calico

Not my best ever page, but I had fun and it got me scrapping again - see what you can do with this cool sketch and link up at the Scrap 365 blog - there's a brilliant prize to be won from Mixed Media Place! 

Cheerio for now, thanks for popping in and see you again soon :o)

Well, I think you should start doing more pages again...this is GORGEOUS.... Loves those 'frames' behind...I really like your scrappy style. It's clean, but got lots to look at! Hopefully the drought has now broken:):)
