I really wish I had discovered scrapping years ago when the girls were small, I always took quite a few photos but I am sure if I was a keen scrapper I would have a lot more photos of their early childhood to draw on.
I found this gorgeous photo of Rebecca when I was looking through an old photo album, after much searching through my rather large drawer of old photos I managed to find the negatives and had a copy taken off. Looking at her now you would never believe she had been so blonde when she was little.
I bought this overlay from Sarahs Cards and it is just like a sheet of embroidery, I started by laying it over the patterned paper but it just didn't show it off enough. Cutting the patterned paper into a frame and laying the overlay on top meant that a large section of the overlay was clearly visible. The overlay is held in place with a line of stitching around the inside of the frame.
I am off for a weekend of scrapping on Friday and I can't wait! It is relatively local as well which is even better, only about an hours drive away so hopefully I will have lots of layouts and photos to share with you next week.
