Thru the Years

I have fallen into the 'Scrapbooking Trap!' LOL! Only a trap because once you get into it, you can't get out!!!

The night before last I was sitting at the computer, going through the gallery when I almost fell asleep....until I had a thought about a Scrapbook page - now, if you know anything about me at all, you will know that I am not really a scrapbooker, infact I have only done two pages up until now, both of them at a monthly class...so this was most unusual...I started pottering with photos and embellishments...keeping to the same colours that were in the first page I did (which you may or may not remember...was NOT in my colours - you can have a look at it here) I was a lot happier with the tones in this one as it blended it all together for me.

Feeling pretty happy with myself, I showed DH who informed me that it looked like POT POURRI....not a good thing I am thinking - there were too many flowers for his liking...seeing as he has a great eye for detail, I went back to the table and got out the clock image, removed some flowers and changed a couple of colours...and this is the final result - the clock works well as it is symbolic of time passing!!

Ready for a shock - I have completed 1 other page and nearly finished the one alongside it - I can't believe it - it must have been going through the photos and all of those memories...I am loving getting them into some kind of order...I feel like I am working on family history for our children....I know from experience that even the best of photos can sit in a box tucked away, forgotten, but put them into an album and they come out for all to see...I am hoping our kids will keep them for years and sit and share the memories of their childhood with them....it is part of the legacy we leave our children...
