A new direction............
For me that is, as I've never tried Scrapbooking before. My crafty pal Kathy recently talked me into joining a scrapbooking challenge forum on Craftbubble and prompted me to do my very first layout.
There was a recipe to follow, which I managed - almost! The photographs I used are copies of very old ones and all but the one of my Mom and me on the right were included in a book written about the small town I grew up in - Bridgtown, Staffordshire. I was so surprised to see the picture of my Great Grandma, Grandma, Great Aunt and my Mom as a child when I read the book and also the other two in which I put a small appearance.
Being predominently a card maker and paper crafter, facing a blank 12 x 12 sheet of paper and deciding how to fill it was really quite scary ! However, I just had to take a deep breath and dive right in. I think it's too fussy and I can already see how to improve it, but hey I've made a start at least and will learn from my mistakes.
I hope you like it and who knows, this could be the start of something big for me !!
