Two are early pictures of Ben and Jake that I had forgotten to scrap. I took them on my first visit after they were home. This was two weeks after they came out of hospital, when they were 7 weeks but less than 5lbs in weight.
The third one is on 'Glimpsing the Past' as it is of my mothers paternal grand parents.
I sometimes feel that my style is too simple but it takes me ages to choose paper and decide where my photos will go, let alone what decoration or embellishments I will use. I have tried to do more complex ones inspired by other peoples work and just occasionally from my own brain but I am actually happier with my simple ones. They do often have quite a lot of work to them though, so maybe I shouldn’t feel I am less inspired than the rest of you out there.
My favourite one of these is ‘2 little boys’ as it happened by accident. I found my background paper and then looked through my scrap box, pulling out two pieces that I thought would work. They were cast onto the main sheet, along with the photo, while I put the box away and when I turned to start work they just looked right just where they sat. All I have done is straighten them up and added embellishments. Wish it worked like that every time!
