A Layout for my daughter

I am sure you scrapbookers will understand this feeling, but on searching through my recently collected photographs, I came across this picture of my daughter (aged 3) that I realised just had to be scrapped. I thought and tried fitting it, with the second matching picture onto a 12 x 12 layout but just couldn't get it right, so I chopped that up and produced a 2 page 8 x 8 layout for her.

As I have previously done albums celebrating the boy's coming of age (13) my daughter who is only 9 was feeling left out. So this layout was something she wanted me to do.

I have decided to produce an album of my family so that I can legitimately scrap the wonderful pictures I have of my kids (and not so wonderful ones too!!)




This is the second page of the layout and although the picture isn't as good as the first it is taken at the same time.

I have put comments on the tags behind the pictures for her later in life and labelled them Dreamy and Cute which I think gives a good description of the photos.

This is really the first scrap because I want to layout that I have done and is not an album based on one subject, which gave me free reign to do anything, which was difficult for a first time even though I really enjoyed it.



The only problem was that I then found other pictures that I needed to scrap only to find that the one piece of card I wanted to use has miraculously disappeared so it will be off to the craft shop tomorrow to pick up another piece - lets just hope they have it!!!!!

So instead, here I am blogging - but that's fine.
