Scrapbook Page - From regional training


Hope everyone had a fabulous bank holiday weekend. I'm trying to sort out one of my rooms and it seems like I am making more mess than less!  Defiantly a couple of trips to the recycling bank for me this week.

My project  today is a scrapbook page that was part of our 'Make n Takes' at Stampin' Up's regional training recently.  I actually bought my kit home to make as, for me, scrapbooking is all about the journalling and that is something that cannot be rushed.

The photo is really rubbish.  There has been no sunny days lately so I had to take the photo inside and no matter how I tried I kept getting loads of glare on the photo, so I had to take it at this very weird angle.

I even tried putting it into my scanner, but it only scans at A4, so not that helpful, but at least this image shows the detail of the page nicely, especially if you open the image in a new tab or window.

The photo is of my son when he was little intensely investigating some flowers, I think there may have been a bug of some kind on them which was holding his attention.  Even though we lived in the center of London, he was always happiest when we were surrounded by nature, luckily we lived near Kensington Gardens so we spent many many happy hours in there.  Even though he is grown he is still happy to wonder round the park with his Mum, though our park now has wild deer, rabbits and parrots, so it's a bit different that a central London park.
