Scrapbook Christmas Gift for Sylvie

Over the course of several years I have made various scrapbook pages of my sister, from her Christening in 1962 to her 50th birthday this year. I put the first 20 of these in an album for her for Christmas.

This was made at Gloucester2 Scrappers Unlimited Retreat in 2006.

This double page layout was an early Scrapaholix kit.

This is a LO created using the Mojo Holder for inspiration.
