BTYD #23 and SSC - Scrappy New year


Charli set this fabby sketch challenge over on the Crop til you drop blog on Saturday and the challenge on Scrummy Stash Cafe blog was to use your scraps.


I have been meaning to scrap this picture for ages, but not got around to it until now. I just love this picture of my Dad (on the left) and Garry (future FIL) taken in Florida when we all went on holiday together. They both look so happy, and it reminds me of how well we all get on as a family, and how lucky I am to now have 2 wonderful sets of parents!


I used a scrap of paper by Chatterbox (OK so it's rather a LARGE scrap - but a still a scrap!! LOL) and the ribbons are from my latest Little Silver Hat kit. The clip is by HOTP and the buckle was lurking in my stash! The title was cut with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge on the expression, and the scalloped squares using the mini monograms cartridge.

I really like the idea of leaving a space so can enjoy the paper colour, great idea the buckle on the ribbon and that picture is GREAT ! They both look so serene...
