Why oh why is it that when I try something new - it turns into a favourite! ! Went to my first ever scrapbooking class on Saturday at Running With Scissors taught by Tracie and this is what I made there. This is my lovely daughter Viki!

So off I toddled home with my little pack from Running With Scissors, raided my paper stash (which I must add is the height of my current ironing pile - which reminds me, I must have a word with the hubby - he really must get to grips with it)! I found some snaps from our cruise last year - and created this. You have to realise I NEVER EVER wear dresses so a piccie of me in this dress is nothing short of a miracle!!!

And if that wasn't enough I had to have another go - this time with a photie from our wedding day taken nearly 7 years ago. Oh doesn't time fly by!!! And we've hardly changed a bit lol!! OK well maybe a couple of ounces here and there! This one is my fave (well out of the 3 anyway) and all I did with this one was cut out the flowers from a duplicate sheet, curled the edges over a very thin dowel and then stuck under them some 3d pads to add depth (yet another tip from Tracey).

This is a close-up of the 3d effect flowers.

And this is how looks as a page.


  1. Polly, you don't need classes, you need to get published in a magazine, the pages are absolutely beautiful and you've inspired me. I'm going to have a go myself too! (well maybe,lol).

  2. Great pages Polly, keep going with them, they are fab xxxx

  3. WOW your first page, wow, I cringe when I look back on my first page, lol!!!

    Your daughter is soo pretty and looks so like you!!!

    I love your glam page, but I have to say your wedding page is my favourite. Really love the vintage feel of it.


  4. Absolutely fabulous pages, love them, every little bit is just right, FANTASTIC!!!
