I'm not a "Scrapbooker". I have so many piles of photo's here and at Mum's - and don't make me count the ones on the computer- that it isn't a case of not knowing where to start, it's knowing that it would never end!!!
Then Josephine, a friend since we were both 8, told me that her daughter, Hazel, needed something special for some special photo's.
Hazel is 10 now and had had her favourite toy, MooCoo, since birth. MooCoo went everywhere with her. Unfortunately this is how MooCoo came to be lost, last summer. Well, Hazel dug out any photo with MooCoo on it, and asked if I could put them into a special book together.
I had a proper 8 x 8 album spare, from a £5 kit I found last year in TK Maxx. So......
Some of them are quite garish, but we're talking about a girl who loves colour and glitter!
I love this spread-
lots of silver embossed swirls, and the paper matches the watery theme in the photo's.
The paper in this one doesn't show well in the photo, but it's a sort of blue marl with a yellow smudge, so it goes with the yellow top that Hazel's cousin James is wearing.
Here's a close up of my lacé!-
Where the image of Hazel's toy is small, I've used a transparent sticky frame to highlight it- like on this one.
Like I said, garish! LOL! But bright colour and glitter is very Hazel.
I really enjoyed doing it. Once I'd grouped the photo's and trimmed the ones that needed it, it took just a couple of evenings to do. It was excellent therapy!
