Seriously

When I first started scrapbooking after my first grandchild was born, I was lucky enough to find an amazingly talented group of ladies at the local scrapbooking shop in Ballarat. These ladies were more than happy to share their talents and ideas with the newbies. Some of these little bits of knowledge still live with me today. A wonderful bit of knowledge that was passed onto me by the very talented Celeste was that if you didn't have embellishments in the right colour for the page, you just paint it, ink it or cover it with paper or change the colour any way to match what was needed. I know every one does this all the time now. But thirteen years ago it was a bit cutting edge.
For the White with One challenge  for February it is White with Chocolate. Chocolate is something that I looooove to eat but don't very often use in my scrapbooking. So armed with a Stampin Up Early Espresso ink pad I now have a  nice chocolate embellishment for the page and some stamping for the background all nicely co-ordinated.
This is quite a simple page but I thought the photo was so beautiful that I didn't want to lose it on the page with too much fuss around it.


Happy Scrapping
