The 2nd

The picture is of cute little old me at about age 3.

I used Core’dinations cardstock which I sanded.

I recycled a few items, such as the ribbon (from an inside a top) which is attached to the chipboard piece at the top of the layout.

The black cord attached to the ribbon is from a tag attached to a present.

The flower is from a hair tie that was coming apart.

Crafting and recycling go hand in hand and I now have a box filled with all sorts of bits and bobs that I am going to find a space for on my layouts.

Hope you like.

My 1st ever Scrapbook Layout

I have dabbled and enjoyed other crafts for many year, since I was a little girl really.  My nana brought 4 kids up during the war and had to be very thrifty and taught me to knit.

I had made cards in the past but really got into it about 2 1/2 years ago.  I started a new job and one of the girls I was working with kept saying ‘ you should give scrapbooking a go, I bet you will like it’.  I wasn’t so sure but everntually sacumbed ‘so to speak’ and had a bash.

I had limited supplies when I put this page together and used a free kit that came with Scrapbook Magazine.  I thought it was ‘canny ‘ as we say in the North East of England.

Anyway hope you like it, let me know what you think.
