NSD 2011

Yesterday was a busy day, filled up with little jobs that seemed to take up all day to do the simplest of things. So wasn't much me time for scrapping, which was annoying really as it was National Scrapbooking Day. After a bath and a hot cup of tea, I felt revived and started a page. So using a sketch from Sketchy Thursday and some more Echo Park " for the record", this is what I created. This photograph of my son is very rare at this time in his life, he never will have his photo taking so I have to use every opportunity I get.......I wanted to document how quickly he is growing up.

At moment I'm finding that my male scrapbook pages are getting quite samey (not sure that's a word but you know what I mean) You can use stars and buttons in so many ways. Anyone got any ideas? or could point me in the direction of male get more inspiration

Starting tomorrow I'm going to post a week in cards, I'll share a new card each day.

Love this page , those spirals of jute are great. Yep male pages are tricky... I tend to go with bright and bold but depends on the photo really. Look forward to your card-a-day next week, are you still making them for your friends cake shop?

I have the same problem Angie, with three boys! I don't think yours are samey though, loving the colour squares and jute cirlces x

Alison said...

Really like the twine spirals under the buttons...male pages are definately harder to do
