Scrapped but forgotten (to blog)

Whilst it looks like I have been absent and not scrapping, I have actually been scrapping every now and then, I just haven't blogged so I now have quite a few pages to share.

The first is a very simple LO of my Dad holding a lovely owl at Cardiff Castle many years ago. I have used mainly scraps of paper and some very simple embellishments.

Next is a LO that explains how David proposed to me with a photo of the collection of photos he had created a story on and the box that they were in along with my proposal ring.

The next is a rather bright and busy LO of a lovely statue in Glasgow bus station of a couple hugging. This photo was sent to me whilst David was living in Glasgow with the caption that he can't wait until he can give me a hug.

One for the wedding album, this is a page to document me heading out of the room and on my way, a step closer to getting married. I used butterflies on the page as I had major butterflies in my stomach at this moment - more because I was terrified I would fall down the stairs! I was holding onto that banister so very tight :)

I really like the relaxed feel of this photo of myself and my bridesmaids on the way to the car (we were all fed up with posing for photos already so it was nice to be actually doing something and capture a nice photo)

This is my Dad's Steiff bear "Big Ted" (no points for choosing an original name)! It is such a beautiful bear, even half a century after it was given to him.

I love the finished product of this LO. The photo is 21 years old now of Christmas day. My Dad had received a new camera (in the days before digital existed) and a range of accessories for Christmas so my Nan and I had to sit whilst he played around with it. Fair to say that I was fed up but my Nan seemed to be more than happy to play model for hours on end!

My final page to share this time around is of the same Christmas day. This photo has always made me laugh as you can see my Dad's hand with camera remote trying to take a family portrait. My Nan didn't quite get the idea and looked directly at the remote and not the camera :)
