I decided to ink a frame around my edge and do lots of doodling....Emma has found a tree out in our front yard that she has been climbing, so these are some pics i took with my new camera(NB they could look better if they were printed nicely!!My bloody printer needs cleaning or something!)

and here is my layout based on this great sketch:

Your journalling criteria for this challenge is to write the reason you chose to scrap this photo
(e.g. to remember this moment, to remember someone, to send a message to someone, because this photo makes you smile, the photo shows a personal achievement, your child's milestone etc. etc. )

Your journalling can be any type i.e. handwritten, printed etc.. and as long as you wish it to be.

Here is the sketch we had to use designed by the lovely Nadia:

Workout #42 - Back In The Day

We often seem to concentrate on scrapbooking our current photos but for this workout we are going to dig out an old photo! Pull out the box under your bed and find a picture of you as a kid (any age)! Its important to scrapbook the past as well as the present! Lets see what look you give this page, will it be a vintage look or how about a retro 80’s look???

Sweet Peach Crop Shop has generously donated 2 of their specialty Anniversary Kits to us this month!

Here is my layout....a bit different for me, so it was certainly a challenge!!!

Yes....they are pics of me when i was how we change...wish i was that small now these days....LOL

You have until April 30th to link up your 'Back In The Day' layout here
