Today I am showing you my first foray into the world of scrapbooking. My friend over at Scrappin' Creations by Gill M has started a group which there are 10 of us and we pick a theme and link to her blog out attempts. There are newbies like myself and others who have been scrapbooking a while.
I plan to do the first 5 years of a page for each and then a page for every 5 years. I became a grandmother for the first time on the 1st January this year to a beautiful little girl named Alice and I wanted to do this for her so that when she is older we can sit together and I can take her through the book.
I will see how I progress with this my first attempt and then start one for Alice which I would love to give her on her 21st Birthday.
The first photograph is the Album itself.
Below is the front of the album which I have covered using My Craft Studio Papercraft Library Volume 2 Paper Word textured background and using text written the title of my scrapbook which is "A journey through my life". I have added the map of Malta as this was where it all began in 1960.
Finally onto my first page. I have used backing paper from My Craft Studio My Stencil Studio CD 2 background for the mat for my little introduction from my parents on the birth of their daughter and to frame the photograph of myself at 3 weeks old. The alphabet was taken from Artist Collection Volume 1 Smudge Alphabets 1. I have cut them out and placed them at the top of the page. The teddy, nappy pins and stars are from my crafty stash.
I would really appreciate any comments, hints or tips on my first foray into the world of scrapbooking.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today.
