I spent some time going through a box of photos that I had extracted from the old style photo albums.  You know the ones, you opened the plastic cover and the photos stuck onto the sticky page and you closed the plastic cover to keep them in place.  I removed them from the albums quite some time ago and I haven’t really done anything with the photos.  These photos of my two girls at my Mum and Dad’s house in Sydney were taken over a period of three years.  I used a layout for a challenge on a Facebook page – Scrapbooking Global – I belong to as inspiration.  I cut all the photos down to 3″ x 3″, except the one of the girls in the bath it is 3″ x 2-3/4″.  All of the photos are mounted onto Basic Black card.  To create the panel in the centre at the top, I cut down the 3″ x 4″ Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card to 3″ x 3″. I cut the “Love This” from another 3″ x 4″ Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card and trimmed it to fit across the panel.  I wrapped the panel with the White 3/8″ Linen Ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo and attached it to Basic Black card.  I tied a bow in another length of the Magnolia Lane White 3/8″ Linen Ribbon and attached it using a Glue Dot.  The photo of the girls in the bath is attached to a 3″ x 4″ Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card and then Basic Black card.  To create the panel in the bottom right hand corner I cut down a 3″ x 4″ Magnolia Lane Memories and More card and attached it to Basic Black card.  I stamped the greeting from the retired Sale-A-Bration stamp set – Part of My Story – using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut out the greeting using one of the squares from the Stitched Shapes Dies. The journalling panel is a 6″ x 4″ Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card.  The card is attached to a piece of Basic Black card to fit into the space between all of the other panels and it left a blank section on the right hand side.  The 3″ x 4″ Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card that I cut the “love this” from also had two flowers on the corners.   So I fussy cut them and attached them to the corners on the right hand side of the panel.  The title is cut from Basic Black card using the retired Little Letters Dies.  I also stamped “sweet moments” which comes from the retired Remember This Project Life stamp set.  I hand wrote my journalling, not something I love doing, but hopefully my grandchildren will be able to read it ok.

I love these photos, they are not pretty or expertly styled but each one brings a smile to my face as I remember the fun we had when visiting Mum and Dad.   To me that’s what “everyday life” is all about.

Bye for now,
