Challenge Two – What do you value

So the next challenge today was to scrap something that has value to you. Well, it was a no brainer really – the most important, valuable thing in my life is my came… no wait, my husband, it’s my husband 😉

And my home town. The two are intrinsically linked and between them they ground me and keep me sane. And I love them both more than words can say.

Challenge One – Return to Scrapbooking

I was once an avid scrapbooker. I took photos purely for scrapbooking purposes. I spent vast amounts of time and money on paper and glue and ribbon. A couple of house moves left me without a permanent crafting space – my desk was always covered with hairdryers, make up, clothes etc. I just moved house again and once more I have a dedicated crafting space. And fortuitously this weekend one of my scrapbook heroes is having an online weekend of scrapping loveliness.  So here I am. Ready to join in with Shimelle and her army of scrapbook fans. First up – monochrome – not just black and white but scrapping with one colour. So predictably I picked green. A colour I love more than any other. And it has a very special meaning to me. Here’s my first layout for over a year.

My first layout - monochrome colour.
