A little while ago, I probably wouldn't have been able to do this page. I used to stick religiously to using papers on a layout all from one collection/manufacturer. Don't get me wrong, I still love paper collections, but now I can mix and match a little bit more than I used to! And here is some proof of that!
Cute picture too of Hayden and Oscar, just love it :)
It feels really funny to scrap a photo of my Mum taken before I was even born, before Mum was even married in fact! But that is exactly what I have done with this layout!
Very, very simple layout (not that that means that no shuffling and umming and ahhing went on of course!) where I tried to give it a 1960's feel. Not sure if I succeeded with that, but the papers go pretty well with the photo, so I am happy!
I find it amazing that one family could consist of four boys! What are the odds of that happening?!
I had been wanting to use that little boy sticker for ages, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to pop it on! These papers are so old, one of the first collections I bought in fact, and although I still like them, maybe the fact that they have been kicking around in my stash for so long has made me a little bit bored of them ... :( However, they worked well with the colours the boys are wearing in the photo, so all's good!
Hi friends and family! I'm Carole, married to Phil since 1991 with two children, two dogs and two cats. We live in a lovely part of the world, on the south coast of England. I love most things crafty, especially papercrafting, sewing and cooking! I am very lucky to be able to do most of these things on a regular basis.
