When sorting out my stash to take away this weekend, this little photo
dropped out of somewhere and I just knew I had to use it straight away, so no more sorting, scrapping instead
This photo was taken in December 2010, I had planned a special holiday for my 70th birthday, taking all my family to Edinburgh. The holiday was not a great success but there were moments, little snippets that add a sparkle when I think of them and this photo of Danny in a Lion's head hat is one of them. He looks so cute.
(the papers used here are all from freebies collected over the years I have purchased magazines, I am on a quest to use up some of them before plucking up the courage to throw the rest away)
I love scrapbook challenges, and this week's challenge on UKScrappers was right up my street.
Use this sketch
stamps, buttons, ribbon and/or trim
I loved the papers that were a freebie in Scrapbook Magazine this time and they seemed perfect for the photo I had chosen.
The photo I found on Facebook. one of Helen's friends had taken it and put it on there, the lighting is way off but I just loved the smile on my daughter's face so I used it in two ways the first I enhanced it slightly and then for the second one I turned it to black & white then sepia and softened it. (isn't it amazing what you can do with a little photo manipulation)
I was stuck for a title until I found the 'precious' rub on and I think it fits the bill beautifully
now to get on with sorting stash for the w/e
Today I am grateful that I didn't have to be out for too long.
for lots of layers of clothes to help warm me up again once I got back inside.
