“Scrapping In My Journal”

Hi Friends,

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. I have been unwell for a few days and I am feeling a bit better now. I wanted to start playing in my new journal so nothing is stopping me lol 🙂

I am lucky to have a new Canon Selphy Printer which my boys bought me for Xmas as I wore my old one out 😉 I transfer my photos from my computer, on to a USB stick and print them out to the size I want them. It is so handy as we don’t have anywhere local to print them out at a reasonable price.

By printing my photos smaller and using a folded card I was able to get 7 photos on this double page in my journal. This was about my cousins and I. We have only been catching up lately at our parent’s funerals which is so sad. I grew up with my cousins and since mum passed away I have really missed our connection 😦 It is very important to document the sad and hard times of our lives as well as all the happy ones.

This page is probably more of a ‘junk journal page as I used the ticket and piece of Prima packaging on this one. My sister and I went to Paperific in Melbourne last year and it was heaps of fun, but very tiring for me as the driver 🙂 Everything is from my JJ or scrap stash and the flowers were from a little prize I won at Home and Scrapped on FB. I used a bit of Distress Oxide spray in the background and some trim, washi tape, die cuts, staples, etc. I also die cut a polaroid frame for the photo on the left

I have enjoyed my bit of a Junk Journal this afternoon and I hope you have had some “me time” also!

Happy Crafting
