JCBC # 31

Good morning girlies! Hope you're all having a lovely Monday and had a fabby weekend :o) This week's sketch is by Rheannon and I loved working with it ~ lovely and simple with lots of scope for making it more complicated if you want!

For this week's sketch I decided to make a scrapbook page. (I hope that Karin will forgive it not being a card?!) One of the children I used to look after was in foster care and he has gone to live with his grandparents. I am making him a scrapbook so he has lots of lovely photos to look at and remember his time with us. This is the first page I have made, I just LOVE this picture of him, he has such a cheesy grin...heehee.

I haven't done much in the way of scrapbooking before so it is just a 6x6 album to ease me in gently lol Watch out girlies ~ I can feel a new addiction coming on ;o)

Image: photo

Paper: from stash

Ribbon: from stash

Also used: scalloped circle nesties and ribbon slider die with cuttlebug

Gems: from stash

I hope you'll hop on over to Just Christmas and Birthday Cards and join in with this week's fun :o)
