Family and something different.

Good morning once again everyone! Thank you once again for your comments and time! I'd also like to welcome my new follower FLORA , thank you kindly for following my blog. Someone once told me blogging could become addictive and boy were they right lol.

Well since being on here I've not told you much about myself so though I'd show some photos of my family today via a scrapbook page I made this morning.

I started to make a scrapbook book a few months ago and I'm halfway through the album. The photos today will show you the front cover and the page I made today. It mostly features my two boys as children.

I used scraps of paper from 12 by 12 which I had hoarded away in my stash which I  teared and placed on different directions on the 12 by 12 blank card. I matted and layered both photos of my boys with more papers scraps I had left in my stash. I also used gold mirror card to make the photos pop a bit. Photo corners were used on both photos on two corners each. The lettering on the right were letters that were die cut and the butterfly transparent "live your dreams" sticker was from my mother. I finished of the scrap page with a ribbon border on the right edge of the page with a scalloped piece of paper placed in the centre. I finished with words of "togetherness" , "son" , "be anything and everything" mount board embellishments. The ribbon was something I've had for quite some time in my stash but have not got round to using it so glad I used it today.

I love the colours on this scrap page I think they go well together.

The photo on the top right is Jason who was about two at the time of the photo but is now 20 , oh my how quickly they grow lol. The photo on the bottom left is Liam who was just under a year old at the time of that photo and is now 16, he was one messy eater lol. They've been hard work but I'm proud of them and they mean the world to me no matter what!

This is going to be a fabulous keepsake Sharon. I have just one fro my sister for her son's wedding. Before that I did a baby one too - the first year of my great nephew's life, for my nephew and his wife. Your boys might not appreciate their baby photos at the moment but I'm sure later on they will certainly appreciate it. Good luck with the rest of it. Perhaps you will show us a few more pages at some stage. love from Christine x

Morning Sharon, Beautiful scrapbook layouts today, they are stunning, I keep telling myself I must start to scrapbook, I have all the scrapbooks to start, but time eludes me at present. I must make time, I made one for my Mother-in-Law before she died and she absolutely loved all the memories, beautifully displayed.
Have a lovely Sunday.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
