The first layout is Kevin's first Christmas. These photos were scanned and printed. I asked his mum to write a story of his first Christmas. I am lucky because she is one of the original scrapbookers. She kept records of everything. I may curse her in her grave when I have to clean out their house but right now it is fantastic. She dug out an old diary and was able to tell me all the details of the day and days surrounding Kevin's first Christmas. I love the stories of people's lives so I am so grateful I have a mother-in-law who recorded so much.
Have a look at the photo in the double page layout with the pink wall behind us. My Dad’s house was painted pink. The walls were pink, the furniture was pink, the outside was pink. Now you might be thinking my Dad was a little strange for a having a pink house but it was like that when he bought it. Under the layer of pink was green, then blue, then yellow (I think that is the order it went) and it was that old thick lead paint. Probably so unhealthy to live in. It was a nice house though and the furniture that came with the house was beautiful, under the pink.
I apologise for not taking a photo of the double page as a double page. I'm going to blame the kids for distracting me or possibly my Mummy brain.
I cut small designs out of the paper then put them through my Cuttlebug with a sizzix die.
