Another scrap page

Well my daughter finally got round to sending me some photos of her room in Halls at Uni so I got to make the second page of your album;) The photos aren't that great, a bit on the dark side but she is a whiz on photo shop so I will replace them with better ones when she gets home in May. I followed the layout from Creative Craft World February Challenge. I used my sewing machine a lot and did a bit of ripping and tearing. Made a little note book page with some raffia threaded through. The album I bought for Searlait is an 11''x8'' one so not as much space to fill though for this particular sketch it might have worked better with a 12x12. But hey I am on a learning curve with this scrap booking.

papers - Brenda Walton
Embellishments - sewing machine, fancy cut scissors, ripping and tearing
Sentiments - cricut letters, sentiments from Brenda Walton pad

I am entering this into
Creative Craft World - scrap map February
Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with my Christmas Club card, just had to try and get it made:(
Thanks for dropping by and leaving me your lovely comments and welcome to my new follower Sandy. I will be dropping over to see you tomorrow;)

Hi, I have never done a scrapbook page but I can see how wonderful this will be to look back on, a real memory builder, and I can see you had so much fun putting it together with all the stitching and all the other elements. Fab.
