6" x 6" Scrapbook page - Anniversary photo

Hi there,

Hope you are having a good day and are looking forward to the weekend.

A couple of weeks ago I attended a Stampin' Up regional training event and amongst my team we decided to do a special Swop for each other.  The lovely and talented Laura Meek, (click on her name to go to her blog), gave us all a gorgeous 6" x 6" scrapbook page.

It wasn't quite right for the photo I wanted to use so I recreated it and just changed it just enough to fit the image I wanted to scrap.

It's a picture of my Mum & Dad taken on their wedding anniversary, 26 years ago today, (yes, today is their wedding anniversary).  My family weren't very big photo takers so that now that both of them are gone, every photo I have of my Mum & Dad is precious and this one is especially precious as it is the only one I have of them kissing. 

I'm a big fan of journalling and actually capturing the memories but, as you can see, there is not a lot of room on this page for any, so I solved that by hiding the journalling under the photo.

I've attached the photo unto a piece of patterned DSP that I attached to a piece of cardstock that I had folded in half and sized to fit the spot left for the photo, so whilst the page is in the album you see the lovely photo, but when you take it out of the page protector you can lift the photo up and read the journalling.

The above is Laura's original page, which is just lovely and I will keep in my scrapbook of a wonderful day at regional training and of the perfect inspiration for scrapping one of my favourite photo's of my beloved and much missed parents.

take care .... xx
