Finally a New Layout!

Hello! So sorry if you've been dropping in and there was nothing new to see. I don't really know why, but it looks like a took a long break from scrapping! I finally went back in my scraproom this weekend and finished a layout that had been on my desk since November...

It's based on the November sketch at My Creative Sketches.



I used one of my old pictures that I've scanned from slides. That's me on my first birthday. The title means "Reader". The journaling talks about how my mom used to read us books every night. When I was five, I asked how she could read just with letters. She then showed me how to read with the magnetic letters on the fridge. I always loved to read, and I still do!



I used a mish-mash of old papers (some Crate, Making Memories and My Mind's Eye). I also used a vintage doily (from the 40's or 50's) that was in my grand-mother's stash. I love all its details. It's hard to see from the picture, but I love how the crochet flowers match the little crocheted dress I'm wearing!

So I'm planning on going back to the scraproom regularly. Hopefully, I'll be more productive! I've got a bunch of Disney pictures to scrap now from our trip to Disney World during the Christmas break!

Hope you have a scrappy week!

Martine
