I'm so sorry for the lack of action on my blog everyone! It's been so long since I blogged that I became one of those people that you check their blogs and the same picture comes up....again..... and again..... I swore I would never do that but sometimes life just gets in the way. I've had 2 kids doing exams (one did her first VCE 3/4 subject in year 11) and a sick hubby as well as a few social outings and heaps of work to do. Oh yeah - and I managed to squeeze a bit of scrapping in!
Here's one layout I made.
I love this photo! This is my Aunty Shirley at my 50th, which had a 50s theme. She came as a frazzled 50s mum, complete with an apron, curlers and a scarf over her curlers. Doesn't she look fabulous!
I used October Afternoon papers. What else would I use for a 50s theme? The papers matched her apron perfectly. I have a bit of a thing about using A4 and rounding the corners on retro pages. I kept this layout nice and simple in keeping with the theme. Those borders are fussy cut from the papers.
Here's a close-up:
That quote is so perfect for this photo!
Thanks for looking everyone - and a big hello to Aunty Shirley who will be looking at this blog for the first time! She will be feeling a bit special this week as she also appears in a layout I did for this month's Australian Scrapbook Ideas mag.
I promise I'll be back in less than a week with another update.
