The other day whilst I was searching for something I came across an envelope containing a few photographs that I had had reprinted (you know how it is) some time ago. As I had been wanting to do a scrapbook layout, I decided to use these photos, even though I have a couple of cards that I need to make far more urgently, but sometimes you just have to go with what you are inspired to make!
I needed to refer back to my old diaries to find the exact date - and I was surprised that it was nearly nine years ago! Obviously my babies have grown up A LOT but that's not really surprising since Alex was 8 and Hayden wasn't even 5 when these photos were taken, and now they are both 6' feet tall. Sigh. I remember the day quite clearly although I had forgotten that we did those other things all on that same day, I had remembered the London Eye flight as a separate occasion! Thank goodness I have kept all those old diaries.
I used my TK Maxx bargain We R Memory Keepers papers "Blue Vintage" (£3 for about 8 papers, the pink flock ribbon and a little pack of glitter brads - on the flock ribbon). Maybe the page is a little girly since it features Hayden, but I just had to pick out the pink of Alex's jumper.
I enjoyed doing this page, even if it did take ages of shuffling bits of paper around, and since I found a few other photos along with these, I might just have to do another scrapbook page soon ...
