Scrapbook page


Hi everyone, me no blog long time.

I think I was overwhelmed with all the comments I felt had to do, so did VERY few!!! My apologies to you all, the cards and projects I have seen are absolutley wonderful and all needed praise, so I will say it here, I am seeing so many fabulous creations that I could never keep up with in creativity or the standard of work you all do.  Fantasic work. I think I will have to sit back for a while on my commenting, so ongoing apologies, I will be trying to do some, perhaps a few a day.

I have also had quite a few hard months, which has made me feel not in the slightest creative or even caring if I blog or not.  Sorry to be so negative.

Anyhow, someone in work and I were talking and she was telling me that she was making an album for her mother's 70th birthday.  She was telling me she was using an ordinary album and I really don't know why but I said "why don't you scrapbook them", now you know I don't scrapbook, I thought it a waste of time to "spoil" a photo as the other things on the page took over from the main picture, as I thought.  She asked me to show her, so I showed her, online, at a couple of examples, she loved it so I said I would do one of her photos to show her what it would look like. 

This is what I did for her, the trouble is I LOVED doing it and have now spent a lot of time looking for photos of my own that I can believe it or not "enhance" oh! no another addiction and something I can do digitally, my first love LOL.  I have even done a page for a "challenge" below this one.  I know I couldn't win, but it really did give me a buzz to try and find a photo to match the colours and then go through my digi papers to match the colours.  The paper used etc are below each page.

The digi papers I used are Mysteria by Digital Diva Delights and the leaf branch are by C Stephens at Shabby Princess, I have blurred the faces as I haven't asked if I can use the picture on my blog.




The floral papers I have used are by Pink Petticoat the elements and pink zigzag paper is by Gina Cabrera at Digichick, the bunting is recoloured to match everything and is by Gypsy Bella also at Digichick. This is of my No.2 brother and his gorgeous granddaughter.

The challenge I am entering is

  1. Hi Faith, welcome back!

    Two beautiful pages! I can see you'll definitely be hooked on digital scrapbooking now - right up your street! I LOVE the papers, colours and elements on the second one.

    Please don't worry about commenting; I don't mind and I'm sure no one else does either. Sometimes life takes over and sometimes we just don't feel like blogging, but it's okay.

    Now I'm putting on my best teacher voice to give you a good telling off!! YOUR WORK IS AMAZING; UNIQUE, ORIGINAL, AND CREATIVE!! I also love the way you show your sense of humour in your work. We all have different styles and strengths and there's stuff you do that I and others could never do!!!
