I recently took a look at my old scrapbook albums. I have not scrapbooked for many years, so it was nice to see and reflect on my early layouts.
The photos of the layouts below are my first two layouts ever. I clearly remember the trepidation when I made them.
I used the same photograph (our Son, Philip) in both layouts. I obviously thought that a ripped paper edge was the way to go at that time, although that was more likely down to minimal papercrafting stash, so my choice was limited.
I by far prefer the second layout.
