Octobers Paper Paradise Competition Page

This is my entry for Octobers competition at Paper Paradise. I had to follow a template and have stuck to it quite rigidly as it works really well with all of the elements attached.
I always scrap with one large photo so using small ones is new to me and I have never had the subjects looking away from the camera, you almost feel as if you are spying on them, but I am sure the girls didn't even notice Helena had her camera pointed at them.
It was a bit scary using my own handwriting but I had been inspired by some embellishments in the previous Scrapbook Inspirations Magazine and I love doing a stitched effect with my Sakura Pens. It's certainly more reliable than my sewing machine!

Hi Ruth,

Well done on getting your blog up and running!!!

It's fun cause you can post what you want, whatever size you want, etc!!

Once you have done it a few times it gets much easier!!!!

You comment on using your own handwriting. Well, mine's awful but someone pointed out to me that she really treasured one wee bit of writing of her grandma's and because of this, she now hand writes all her journalling to pass on to the next generation.

I thought that was nice and as handwriting is so personal, a nice heritage.

I don't feel so bad about my writing now. Strange how people can give you a different view on things.

Lovely page.
