so in August I went away to my first ever scrapbook crop!! it was amazing!! I've always wanted to give it a go, but it was just getting started... you know one of those things you keep saying, mmmm yes I fancy doing that.... but never actually doing it ! My Friend Sandra who is a long standing talented scrapbooker, introduced me to MTS- Mind The Scrap a brilliant group run by the very very lovely and talented Emma Clark, if you are a scrapbooker and you haven't ( im sure you will have!!) seen Emma's fab Facebook group check it out just here... Mind the Scrap
it was such a great day, the crop ran from 10am to 10pm , Emma and every single lady that attended were just the loveliest group of crafters you could wish to meet!, so.... I now declare myself a Scrapbooker lol, I actually only made one page that day, although I did start page number 2!
I spent quite a while just staring at my stash thinking what shall I do! but once I got on a roll, it was all good!
so here it is, my first page, and of course I used a photo of my most precious Granddaughter Scarlett my angel ( Rory will be coming up on my next page!)
so where to start lol..... I really had no idea, it really took me a while to decide on which photo, I could see all these lovely ladies pull kits out their craft bags they had made up ready to put together!.... so I made a note of that! make up kits hahah brilliant idea!, but I knew it had to be PINK, that was a must so whilst deciding what I was going to do I knew I could at least start my base! I chose a gorgeous patterned paper from one of my Heartfelt Creations pads, and I HAD to do a bit of tearing and curling, I just cant stop myself... you'll see a lot of this if you keep popping by to check my posts! bit of Spectrum Noir Harmony ink in plum Jam on my edges and that's it I'd officially started!!
I probably stared at this page a good while until my ideas came together,
so what have I used.....
some gorgeous flower stamp and dies from Heartfelt Creations,
all the foliage and swirls etc are from Crafters Companion, the word Beautiful too!
then the perfect phrase " You are my Sunshine" for my title, this is a fab little die from a Creative expressions set I have that comes with a cute rainbow.
and here's my first ever finished page! I love it! now.... it definitely will not fit into a scrapbook lol, so this one will go into a box frame and will proudly hand on my craft room wall!
I have already started page number 2! with my gorgeous little Rory, so I'll share that one as soon as its finished,
thanks for stopping by my lovelies!!!
