A New Project – Scrapbooking Me

Project number 6 trillion and 22 – Scrapbooking Me.

So I’ve started a new project, this one is a retrospective. I’m hunting out old pictures of myself to scrapbook, journal or memory file, kind of watching how I’ve changed over the years. So here is my first make in the project, an 8″x8″ scrapbook page with a picture from way back in 2007.

Oh so much younger, a full 5 years ago! Ok so probably not that much younger, luckily it wasn’t taken with a hi def camera! The photo was taken in March with a mobile phone camera coming back from a lovely day trip to Winchester. I’ve done some Photoshop jiggery pokery to the photo and added a vintage frame.

And one of my Washi Tape suns, the ZIG Photo signature pens are totally perfect for writing on the slightly non-absorbent Washi Tape by the way. Have I mentioned how much I love these pens? They are definitely in my top five, they are so useful. Anyway I digress The Zig Zag pattern is a Hero Arts stamp. 

I’ve used Heidi Swapp No Limit papers ‘coz they perfectly matched the photo and their style kind of matches me as well. I love the blue prints and technical drawings – very me. The number stickers are the Heidi Swapp Color Magic Letterbox Resist Alphabet Stickers and I’ve treated them to an acrylic paint make-over. 

So have you started any new projects recently? I would love to see them! Feel free to do a Scrapbooking Me project just remember to drop back and leave me a link to your project if you do.

Enjoy your Olympic Friday!
