Scrapbook Page


Today I'm sharing with you a 12" x 12" scrapbook page that I put together using one of the "Simply Scrappin" kits from Stampin' Up.  The kit I used is called "Country Club" and is one of the kits that I used to make one of the cards I shared yesterday.

It's the first 12" x 12" physical scrapbook page I've done.  Up to now my scrapbooking has been confined to much smaller memory books or digital pages so a blank 12" x 12" page seemed quite daunting at first, but I knew the photo's I wanted to use and the story I wanted to tell, so actually I found that I filled up the page quite quickly.

(sorry about the terrible photo ~ working on it!)

The photo's are ones of my DS, Ben, when he was about 5 and they were taken when we were on holiday in Portugal.

I like the basic layout but I'm not that please with it overall so I stopped working on it as I decided that it would be easier to add things later than try and take things off if I add too much at this stage.
I am glad I got the memory down and I've been able to use these photos to perfectly illustrate a family story for the future, which is, after all, what scrapbooking is all about and I intend to do a companion page using up to date photo's to further illustrate my story so I'll see what I feel it needs when I see the two together.
