Sunday Morning snaps

At last I've been shopping and got some batteries for my camera, and here are the last two offerings to my scrapbook. I tried to do some fluting on the edges of some of the papers as tutored by my friend Debbie at CountryHeartandHome to give it an 'old' feel. I wanted to make a page with Lace on it (as it's Lacey's scrapbook), but wanted to go down the more vintage look, using old creams, browns and soft pinks. I went onto a baby naming website to get the name definitions for Lacey and typed them out dictionary style. I think a lovely sepia photo would go well in this page.

This next page was just a bit of fun really as it is going to be her 2nd Birthday and I thought it would be fitting to have a picture of little Lacey at her party. Again I've tried a little more fluting on some of the papers. I drew and cut the number 2 from a piece of card and covered it in papermania paper, mounting it on to a few more layers from the same papermania pad. I left enough room for the photo to be inserted in the pink area and so that it could just slide under the no.2 embelishment. I snipped lots of pink and light green ribbon and taped it to the back of the paper just to liven it up a bit. All I need to do now is stick them all into the album ready for her mummy to fill with photo's. This was my first ever scrap project (6x6) and although I have enjoyed it I will say I think I would prefer to do the next one on a bigger scale, as it's hard to get going when you haven't got much room to work with!!
