Our Photo

 
 
When I saw that the theme at 'Scrap the Boys' was to "scrap a photo showing 'love' between you and your son" this photo of myself and my 18-year old son Adam came to mind. For the last 9 years in the summer vacations we have spent a week at a beautiful seaside village called Omapere. Very early on Adam and I started this little tradition of having a photo taken together on the same pool -side chair. The tradition has lasted and each yer we update our photo. The larger photo on my page is from 2013, a few weeks ago. The smaller photo is from 2008 just to show how much Adam has changed. I really treasure this series of photos (one day I will scrap them all on the same LO!). The paper that I used is from my new Teresa Collins collection 'Memories'. I am seriously in love with the new TC lines and I just had to get the complete collections of 'Memories' and 'Ststionary Noted' to complement my 'He said/She said and 'Far and Away' - so I guess you will be seeing a lot of TC pages in the near future :)
 
I have been doing Project Life for over a year now and I am loving it. My kids love to flip through the albums and see all the little things that make up our daily life over a 12 month period. As my Project Life spreads are a big part of my scrapbooking I have decided to share a spread a week with you on my blog. Here is my latest page. It is really hard to take a good photo of these pages because of the plastic pockets which reflect everything, but this is my best effort :)
 


Hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine - if you are in Auckland :)
