Well, that's Christmas done and dusted. I hope you had an enjoyable time and are not feeling too full. I didn't "do" Christmas this year which was a bit strange and I'm glad its over. Just New Year to get through now and then I shall be very pleased indeed to see the back of 2013.
I've not felt much like doing any family history scrapping for a while but over Christmas I started again. I had a couple of sepia photos of my late mother which were taken in 1925 when she was three years old and decided that the lovely Vintage Valentine digikit from Kreative Designs by Karen would work really well with them.
I cropped the shuttered window embellishment to make it work as a frame so that I could put the two photos side by side. Then I changed the colour of the tag embellishment and used that for my journalling. I layered various background papers and materials and gave them a digital torn edge, then copied and pasted the heart shaped doily embellishments to make the fan shape at the back. After that it was just a case of adding the gorgeous flowers, some digital lace, a couple of butterflies and the cute teddy!
I love working with Karen's digikits and Vintage Valentine is definitely one of my new favourites.
