Get Knitted

So, I finally scrapped - hurray. I'd been wanting to scrap this photo for a while and I thought it would look good with my texture tuesday photo from last week. The colour scheme of pink and orange is a bit unusual and not something I would probably have chosen. The papers came in a bargain kit I picked up from.........yes you've guessed it, TK Maxx for £2.00. It also gave me a good opportunity to use some orange glittery alphas that at some point I obviously thought it was a good idea to buy. Why? I can't decide whether my layout looks bright and summery or just plain gaudy but at least it sees a return to scrapping and that can't be bad.

If you're wondering about the photo it's me aged 17, knitting while sitting under a hairdryer getting ready for a night out - like you do! And yes my hair was red and blonde I was obviously struggling against it's natural state of straight and brown to make it blonde and curly.

And please don't say I didn't warn you but my new addiction is making napkin flowers.
Now perched on my kitchen window sill.....

.............And through the round window.

The male of the household is hoping that I move on to a new addiction some time soon.

I almost bought that paper today in TKMaxx! I definitely don't see your page as gaudy, great photo too.
