My first Scrap Pages

Hi everyone I hope your all having a lovely weekend out in the sun how we are having such beautiful weather in the south of England its beautiful.
Well as promised here are my very first scrapbook pages a tricky project for me but I still gave it a go.I have entered these two pages into a Brag Book Challenge where each monday they will be giving us two sketches to complete over 5 weeks and there is an awesome prize too its the new Zutter paper distressing tool plus 2 random prizes of $25 to spend in their store for the second and third winners all of this is happening at Posh Scrapbook Designs and for every page you enter its an entry for one of the fab prizes giving us a maximum of 10 entries.I think you can join in at any time so don't worry if you miss a sketch or two just come along and have fun.The pages are only 5"X 7" so its a great size for a beginner like me.I hope you like my first attempt and hopefully the pages will get better as the weeks go on.I have decided that I am going to do my book filled with photos of my partner Rob and our gourgeous Staffy Blade.
Thankyou for coming over to take a look at my pages and I hope to post again soon.I am also entering into the ooh la la challenge which is for a bright and cheerful creation and Quirky crafts which is chocolate and cream..
Take care everyone

Well done on your scrapbook pages Lorraine. You`ve done well.
I too struggle with scrap booking but have promised myself a class or two soon as someone is taking a Thursday morning at the craft Hoose for anyone interested. Bought albums ages ago to do for both my grand daughters and there still in the cupboard!!

Well done - it's so different to cardmaking isn't it? All the best in the competitions.
