Hurrah for Scrapbooking

Back in 2003 I discovered Scrapbooking and it literally changed my life and helped lead me to the career I have now, sadly when I started my business in 2007 there just wasn't enough hours in the day and my scrapbooking fell by the wayside.

Well hurray, hurrah, hurrooh! (as Hugh Laurie once said in Blackadder) this week I have completed 7 layouts, the first pages in 4 years and as we've just bought a welsh dresser for the kitchen I have been able to reorganise things so that if I do have a few moments spare I can devote them to my favourite hobby.

and so with a wink and a smile at the end of the loveliest week off in ages I'd like to share just a few of those pages.





and so there you have it, if you've never heard of scrapbooking this is pretty much a good introduction and if you already have then this is my style, it's sort of like my photography style really, quirky, ecclectic and above all fun!

I have to say that I find it incredibly relaxing and I'm passionate that our ancestors will know about what we got up to while we had our time on this planet, you see I love photography and the legacy of leaving boxes of photos for the future Charltons to look through but I want them to know more, I want them to actually feel like they have a link to the past, I just hope the world doesn't end before that happens, haha!
