This is a unique challenge. I had to ask myself how much of my personal childhood self am I willing to share with the world? Most scrappers are very happy to scrap their children's photos - that part is easy! But when it comes to scrapping your own childhood/ baby photos, it becomes a little more self-revealing.

The photo frame was painted with acrylics and then covered with the Prima paper. I paper-punched a border and added some lovely white lace to give a soft edge around the photo. I detail cut the bunny family and fairies from Graphic 45 paper.
This was a challenge just tailor-made for me - since I have given myself the task this year of sorting through the family photo box. My progress is somewhat slow, but I don't mind that. It's a process. Somehow, the photos and the scrapbooking go together to tell a story. While it's partly a trip down memory lane, I find that there's also a new story emerging as I deal with the photos in the box. That was really was what got me started on this blog in the first place.
Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful day!
