Camera Shy!!!

Taken at Pleasure Island last September this is the only decent photo I have of my 2 boys (and I call myself a scrapbooker!!! ) The problem is DH refuses to pose or come within a 30 mile radius of me when I have camera in hand...I shall leave it to him to explain to Ben when he's older why there aren't any photos.....then again I think I have deleted thousands of myself in this last year!! Maybe I should learn to scrap the good, the bad and the ugly.

Cosmo Cricket paper, Bo-Bunny Press sticker, 7 Gypsies parenthesis, Prima flowers, Ranger Distress inks and paint. The large LOVE lettering is from The Range.

The tag reads "I love you twice as much as yesterday but only half as much as tomorrow."I refuse to give up on these Distress paints and gave them another go, I still don't like the clumsiness of them but I really like how they have turned out on the edge of the photo. The flowers I'm not so sure about, what do you think?

Love and rare photos

WOW what a great layout, I love the colors and details, fantastic

Micayla said...

Oh my oh my Ruth. That is such a gorgeous layout. I am thinking that between us we keep Prima in business, I would love to see your stash of them!!!
I have almost the same thing about photo's, I have hardly any of Steve and I. The ones I have are really bad or just silly! I really must get some and I have no family ones either.....maybe I need to get the tripod out and have a photo sesh!!
So glad you are feeling better and blogging again.
Speak soon xx

Well it's great to see you finally get both your guys in a shot and the lo is fab, loving the look of the crackle paint and the flowers look mighty fine to me (but I would say that being an addict myself lol)
