Schools out...

...and finally some time for some scrapping!

I don't know why but I'm always so shocked when I see a photo of my daughter and can see the family resemblance staring back at me so strong. Emma is definitely a 'mini me' in looks and personality. Perhaps I should be worried: given what her tantrums are like now, what have I got in store for myself when she's a teenager?!?

Anyway, I love the way this LO of Emma, mum and I (all around the same age) turned out and wish the photo would do it justice. This was created with a UKS challenge in mind. The theme was based around weddings and the 'old, new, borrowed, blue' saying.

For an 'old' technique, I chose lots of machine stitching. My 'new' was my 'new to me' Circa 1934 papers from Cosmo Cricket. I'd been meaning to cut into them ever since I bought them!
The borrowed meant the LO should be scraplifted or sketch based so I chose this LO from Crate Paper (if you scroll down it's the LO by Jaime Warren) Fianlly 'blue' was the colour I chose for my cardstock. Job done! :)
