Scrapbook pages with a difference...

...they have no embellishments at all!
These are three of my favourite photographs I have taken on Granddaughter Sian over the years, and I didn't want to take the eye away from the subject with irrelevant bits and pieces so I decided on a totally white background and title only. In these photographs Sian is 10, 14 and 16.
I started the scrapbook about 6 years ago and finally finished it with these three pages just in time for her to take it back to Uni with her on Sunday LOL.


I am so sorry folks, after reading something about what unscrupulous people can do with photographs grabbed from blogs I decided to withdraw these pics of my Granddaughter. Thank you for your lovely comments which I have left on :o)

Of course, blogger has put them in the wrong order but never mind, I think it's fairly obvious which age she is on each LOL.
I feathered the photographs in Paint Shop Pro and added the titles then printed them in Word. Isn't it amazing how much they change over the years! These pics show Sian in her hippy age, her goth age and her (I think) elegant young lady age.

I hope that 2013 brings every one lots to make you smile :o)

These pages are simply gorgeous! Sian is a lovely young lady - I do like the way her hair changes colour from blond, through black to red! Just wonderful!

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

The photos are lovely Jackie and you are quite right about them being on their own. I expect they look smashing in the scrapbook and that Sian loved it. Happy New Year to you Tracey x

Hi Jackie, Happy New Year a bit late, but well meant. Xmas was a mess at my place... Sorry I missed the pics of your grand daughter, but I completely understand why you took them down. It's a shame we have to be so careful, but better safe than sorry! Hope all is well, hugs, J:)

Viv said...

Gorgeous photo's Jackie ( saw them on Dc), I bet Sian loved the scrapbook too, definately a labour of love. Happy New Year also :) Viv xx

Hi Jackie, I was just looking forward to seeing your scrapping and then there was your message! What a world we live in and it's best to think safety. Thanks for dropping by the cupboard and I really do appreciate your comments and support. Hope to be about more in 2013 and hopefully we will be in touch more often. I have even considered going back to DC where we first met, but as yet have done nothing about it. Sounds about right for me!

Hi Jackie

I've noticed you've been missing in blogland for a while... I see your message about blog photos etc... I must admit I'm always worried about that too.. But anyhow... I just wanted to check you are OK and tell you you're being missed!!

Big hugs

Sorry I missed your photos too - I am sure your scrapbooking page was beautiful. People think everything on the Internet is theirs for the taking - sometimes it makes me want to not blog anymore. So sad that some people don't care about anyone except themselves.
