Childhood


Brilliant day.  Warm'ish, sunshine, and family.  My sister is here visiting for the holiday, so we decided to get cracking on the scrapbook I'm making for our mum.  Here is what almost 5 hours turned into on Thanksgiving before we ventured over to my hubby's parents for the feast.

Yes, 5 hours.  Not having scrapbook exercised for a bit, it took awhile to adjust my brain to an 11x8.5 layout.  But I really love how it turned out in the end!

All the stamps are Unity, from several different sets:

Grandma's Needlepoint
Explore today & every day
Chicken wire
Le Chic

Everything else is Stampin Up.

Off to get a walk in (while it's still fabulous) and work on some more pages, and explore some other blogging friends to see what they are up to!

It turned out so cute. I am always slow on layouts so five hours seems pretty quick:-)

NIce LO. Love old photos because they tell a story and remember with photos is like living again.

PS: Did you use the original photos for this one? I will share what I do as advice to you with respect. When talking about old photos I usually scan them and reprint for scrapbooking and save the originals as treasure. :)

This is beautiful and reminds me of the STACKS of old photos I have of family long gone.... Saw you on Friends with Flair (Unity)
I just found the comment you left last week on my blog. Eek, sorry I was not more prompt. I will try and shoot you an email after this holiday weekend, if it is not too late.

Your scrap page is wonderful!

Your layout is wonderful! I'm a slow scrapbooker, too. It took me all afternoon to do a page today.

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.
