Secret Garden || Scrapbook Layout

Hi all,

I have a little story to tell you today.
It all started one weekend when I was experiencing Anxiety.
I am so much better than I used to be but sometimes life makes you overthink and then diminishes any creativity. So I was in my craft room at a loss...
Then my parents walked in and said they wanted to craft with me.
I nearly cried!

Mum was sat on the floor next to me cutting out bits of wallpaper like she did when she was young (in the 50s and 60s there were no scrapbook supplies, so they had to cut bits out of magazines and newspapers) , and dad was laid on the floor reading. We had coffee and biscuits and it was lovely.

Here's what I started making that evening and finished off the next day. It's using mostly Maggie Holmes' 'Shine' & 'Bloom' collections. The picture is of me (wow!) a few weeks ago when I had a photography morning with my dad at the local garden centre. They have show gardens there and I was sitting looking at all the tadpoles in the pond, and dad took my picture.

Here's Ma & Pa keeping me company <3

Thanks for stopping by!
Emily xx
