going offline for a little while...

This was the first scrapbook page I did. I saw the paper and the layout just fell into place. I knew what I wanted it to look like before I had even chosen the photograph. Unlike the other two pages where I was constantly moving things around and changing things until I was happy. I will eventually put some journaling on these pages. I want to put one word (in chipboard letters) on the page somewhere, but I'm not sure which word to have... any ideas?

My mum took this photograph of me when we were in the car on the way to the church. I was so excited I thought I would burst.

I played about with this page (below) quite a lot before sticking anything down. In the end I was so fed up with my indecisiveness that I stuck it all down anyway, even though I didn't think it was 'perfect'. I'm thinking that the word for this page will be 'spin'. What do you think?

I couldn't decide what kind of embellishments I wanted on this page, so I made these little paper flower thingys. A great way to use up your scraps. I'll show you how I made them in my next post.

Well  folks, I am going to have a little break from blogging. Just a week or so (I don't think I'll be able to resist for much longer than that). I hope you like my scrapbook pages. I'd love to know what you think. I am so loving scrapbooking right now! I shall return soon with more crafty adventures.
Cheerio for now! Pippa x
