As you may have guessed it is Emilys birthday today, she has reached the grand old age of 15! I took a photo of Emily like this last year after seeing a LO in Scrapbook Trends and hopefully I will remember to do it every year.
I started this page yesterday and have actually finished it today which is pretty quick for me! I bought these gorgeous October Afternoon Fly A Kite papers from Sarahs Cards a week or so ago and I just love them. I wanted to try and create a page that was a little bit different, sometimes it is so hard to not end up with a page that looks similar to lots of other pages that you have done.
The photo is of Rebecca and her German student Sarah, she came to stay with us last week for the second time. Although they hadn't seen eachother for nearly a year when they got back together it was as if they had never been apart. Rebecca is going over there in July and hopefully we will arrange our own exchange next year. Sarah is two years older than Rebecca and isn't allowed to come on the exchange next year due to exams. I really loved this photo of the two of them together, it was taken on the chain link ferry from Sandbanks to Studland.
Scrapping definitley isn't a tidy hobby! This is what my craft table looked like when I had finished, I must admit I was getting a bit frustrated with the mess as I kept knocking bits onto the floor, especially when I tried to fit the sewing machine on there as well.
