4 Ever



Well I promised I was going to do more scrapbooking this year so hope you will enjoy my layouts. I know how very lucky I am to have found such a wonderful husband and to still be together and so very happy. We met  a few weeks before my 16th Birthday and the first photo which isn't great quality as it is a print from an old slide, was taken when I was about 17. The second photo is one of my favourites, I rarely like my photos, and was taken 2-3 years ago. Graham says he has changed much more than me. Well he did have rather a lot of hair then and a moustache. He loved that car and would love one like it now to mess around with. Not so sure about the fashions though, wouldn't wear that billowy top nowadays. I've used postcard, watch and paper from the new Papermania Chronology range, Tim Holtz clock die, baker's twine, clock charm from Wild Orchid (I think). The journalling comes from the beautiful song Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce. It was this song and challenge at Crafty Cardmakers which inspired my layout. In fact I am thinking what a great idea to use song titles or lyrics for layouts.
