New year/ New start/ Something new


With the start of the New Year I  promised myself to start Digital Scrapping  and have at last managed to have a go.  I decided to use this photograph of my gorgeous Grandaughter who I love to bits.
I must admit it took me longer to put together than I thought it would. On this particular page nearly every Flower was singularly re-sized and brought onto the page. My layers were re-sized and organised to make the layout. I changed some of the colours of the elementes and  angled some of them  to fit into the page. I added the fringed edge, the clip, the hearts, butterflies and even the little tiny pink  pin. I  am amazed at all the different embellishments available in some of the scrap kits. I have found it to be very theraputic and hope as I learn more I shall get a page done in less than the 4 hours it took me to fiddle with this one.
I have entered this page into a few challenges for the fun of it which are listed below.

This is stunning!! I love all the little embellishments, like the clip and pin. Those flowers around the bottom and corners really tie the page together!! Nice job.
