My First Scrapbook Layout

A few years ago when struggling for Christmas gift ideas for my nan Kelly suggested making her a scrapbook
This is the first page I completed with Kelly’s assistance

It was the perfect gift for my nan and now she is no longer with us the scrapbooks that I made her (I created one each year following the initial one) are truly treasured

Once my craft room is up and running I can't wait to start scrapbooking booking more memories

  8. A lovely idea. I did a similarish thing for my Nan, making up a book of all the info I discovered when researching her family history. I can definitely see a resemblance between you. x

  17. Such a lovely thing to do! Scrapbooks tell us so much more than just a simple photo album. I always imagine people looking at them in 100s of years time and being able to understand the history of a photo. So often we have old photos but no information to go with them. x
