Something Different...

Hi everyone, it's Anna back with you today. I hope you all enjoyed a sunny bank holiday weekend and have some special memories to scrap.
Talking of special memories, I have something a little different for my post today.
For quite some time now I've been wanting to create a page with a picture of me at each age, up to 30.
Although a simple layout, the most challenging part of it was organising all of the photos, making sure I had one for each age.

To create this layout, first I spent lots of time organising my photos and printing them out at different sizes.
Papers with frames on them have been on my shopping list for the last year, as I knew that I wanted to use them to mount each picture. I've had this layout in my head for the last year or so, so I knew exactly how I wanted it to be and finally its completed!

I used these frames:

Pink Paislee Page Evans Whimsical

I cut out a selection of frames from each of the patterned papers and matched up my photographs to fit with the frames. Where I couldn't get them to fit into frames (as I had to print lots of pictures very small to fit them all on a piece of 12x12 cardstock) I mounted them on different coloured cardstock.

I then used small alpha stickers to title each picture with the appropriate age and finished the layout by adding a selection of enamel dots and a title.

Now I'd like to create a similar page for my son, up to 10 years or possibly for each year of school?
Hope this has inspired you to create your own version.
Thanks for looking!

Very original layout and you're so lucky to have a photo from every year. x x
