As seen - Mittens & Me

I should have gone to church this morning, I was dressed and ready to go but I was trying to sort out something financial and forgot the time. I could have rushed up there and arrived after the service had started, but I didn't.
As I was dressed smartly I decided to have a photo shoot, I thought I might do a new book of me, a book about what it is like being in my 70s or maybe not?
They are the only photos I have taken today so I chosen one of them

I have been scrapping today, it is so nice to have the room to do it, and to know where to find what I want to use.
Walking in the Rain
Not sure I am completely happy with it but unlike digital scrapping I can't now alter it.

today I am grateful to having space to scrap
A nice meal (cooked by myself)

I love the photo - you and mittens both smiling, how nice! You looked very posh too.

The scrap page is wonderfully colourful, but I see what you mean. I think it is a little bit dis-jointed. I wonder whether you could trim round the edges and mount the whole thing on a sheet of deep blue or bright coloured cardstock, to tone with the photos? That would frame it and might visually bring everything together. Just a thought. Or maybe you could re-print the photos, just a little bit larger, then mount them over the top of the existing ones, to draw the attention a bit more?
Love the ric-rac and the little ribbon strips - they look great. And the photo of Rufus with his starry raincoat is gorgeous!

Hi Mary, I wanted to thank you for your good wishes. Much appreciated! I really like your layout - it has all the little bits I love and it has great energy about it

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
