Jan and Mia

Another Facebook challenge for National Scrapbooking Day was to use your newest stash and three or more photos.  I haven't bought any patterned paper for ages as I am trying to use up my existing stash especially lots of half finished kits and collection packs.  But when a friend sent me a link to a new paper range from Kaisercraft (Shine Bright) knowing that my favourite colour combo at the moment is yellow and grey - well I just couldn't resist LOL!!

These photos were taken back in 2012 on a long weekend spent in The Netherlands when we took my parents over to visit our family friends The Jansens.  Mum and Dad hadn't seen Jan and Mia for over 30 years so it was a lovely reunion.  I was a little sad whilst scrapping these photos as both Jan and Mia have both passed away since then, but I was also glad that we persuaded my parents to take the trip.  We spent a lovely day with them and other members of the family.

The butterflies were diecut with Cheery Lynn dies and embellished with gemstones from Majorcrafts.


  1. It's a lovely story to have recorded. The power of scrapbooking, eh?

  2. It's a lovely memory to scrap, even though it must have been a little sad x

  3. Fabulous layout, what great photos.

  4. I wonder who convinced you to buy that paper... hmm. .... ;) she hasn't commented yet!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
