At the beginning of this year I decided I wanted to document all the lovely things I have planned in a scrapbook. Partly influenced by Lily Pebbles I took it upon myself to make a book to hold physical evidence of any exciting events I was involved in during 2015. I'm forever taking photos but they never seem to make it off my phone or Facebook into a real life album, so this year I'm making the effort and trying to resort back to the old ways of documenting your life.
So far I haven't had much to write about, however I will be printing some photos from Portpatrick as soon as I get chance. I've mainly been focusing on making the pages look pretty and playing around with ribbon and stickers. I'm a true child at heart and still find something really therapeutic about doing 'arty' things.
My actual scrapbook was an absolute steal from Paperchase, just after Christmas. I paid a tiny £2.50 for it and it's just the best quality and has the cutest owl print. I picked up most my bits and bobs from Wilkinsons in the Christmas sale and they have THE best selection of stickers in the kids stationary section. I certainly will be popping back to invest in some princess stickers. I've also been playing around with buttons and ribbons from my Kirstie Allsop Button Kit* from Hobbycraft which has so many pretty buttons and fastenings to choose from. I must invest in a glue gun to keep them all in place though. The kit also comes with metal work to create your own jewellery, which I really need to have a good play around with.
I can't wait to continue my scrapbook and look back at the final result at the end of the year. I hope it's something I can keep forever and show my family as I get older.
