Something Scrappy

One of my loveliest friends had a birthday in January and I decided to make her a framed scrapbook page. She and her husband are fantabulous with our kids so I put photos of "Aunty P" playing with the kids. I've never done the collage/paper tearing thing but have always loved the kids' books that have illustrations done this way, especially "Hattie and the Fox" by Mem Fox. Goodness Gracious Me!!!

So here are some pics of what I came up with. I decided that the journalling would emphasise the ripped paper, when I probably could have done something with ink? But I just wasn't brave enough! Next time.

The journalling has lots of words starting with P - P for Aunty P. I was quite proud of how it turned out. And considering Aunty P is a very talented Art teacher I am, in hind sight, quite impressed with my bravery at giving her something "arty"!

And Aunty P loved it! So that's the main thing.
Thanks for looking :-)
