My First Scrapbook Layout

Hi there and hope you've had a good start to the week. The weather here in Ireland has been absolutely gorgeous these last few days, cold but clear blue skies all day. Well I've finally got round to creating my first every scrapbook layout and I must admit I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out. I would love to know what you all think of it, good and bad comments please (don't be shy).

I've gone for the shabby chick look and I must admit I love the torn edge effect. I've used plain white cardstock and then used my MME Bloom & Grow stamps with distress inks. The DP is Making Memories and I've torn the edges and inked them up again using distress inks. The 'SWEET' sentiment I created with my slice machine and the 'Daughters' sentiment is a digital download.

The little cutie pie in the photo is my youngest child Caitlin and she was 2 years old when I took this photo. The flowers I made myself using various dies.

Thanks for stopping by today.

  12. Just gorgeous Michele and I love how you've used the little charm! One day I will get around to doing some scrapbooking but, having said that, a 12 x 12 blank piece of card is a bit daunting!!
