Scrapbook layouts

I don't think it's possible for me to ever get 'up to date' with my scrapbook pages, but that's ok.  My goal is not to get up to date, despite a whole week of scrapbooking and 52 completed pages.  My goal is to enjoy scrapbooking, to play with the supplies and photos and embellishments, to be inspired by the Scrap Addicts and share ideas, to have a record of the ordinary and special days of my life. 
I really get a good feeling when I think about my baby nieces looking at their scrapbook albums in 20 or 30 years' time, and seeing photos of themselves as little people growing up. 
Here are some of the layouts that I completed on the scrapbooking retreat last week....

This was one of my favourite pages from the weekend.  I made this paper doll a very long time ago (when paper dolls were still fashionable in scrapbooking!), and it fitted perfectly with the swimming page for Elizabeth

I so appreciate the Scrap Addicts group!  I learn so much from them, and it's not all about scrapbooking.  I have been instructed to use eye cream to reduce my wrinkles, and much advice was shared about the aches, pains and occasional itches (don't ask!) associated with ageing

Leonie created this awesome layout of her trip to Dubai.  She is the queen of embellishments, and finishes off her pages perfectly

  1. I love all your pages and yes the Splash page is super special ... I should go and look through my albums and check where I used a paper doll (or probably 2).

    I loved spending the weekend with the girls and then the rest of the week with you. Can't wait for our next get-together.
