Scrapbooking: My Favourite Doctor

Hello you.

Do you remember the dressing-up photo-booth from my sister's birthday party last year?

You remember. The one with all the costumes and moustaches?

Moustaches which people on Facebook told me actually suited me. As if, in some way, that's what my face's been missing all these years?

Yes. That's the one!

Well, even though I was convinced I'd forgotten how to scrapbook ... and even though this page saw me chasing tiny scraps of paper around a page for what felt like an inordinately long time ... I've now begun scrapbooking some of those photo-booth photos. Starting with this one:
This was also my 3DJean Design Team project for the month and you can visit my full post, complete with product details here.

As a little New Year's gift this year I gave each member of my immediate family a photograph I'd printed off of each of them in an iconic moment of their 2013 and this was the one I chose for James.
I 'm really not a general Dr.Who fan ... I'm more of a 'very select few Doctors' fan as the journaling reveals ...
As for those little bits of paper I found myself pushing around until I just about got into my scrapping stride ...
... they were all from the Carta Bella 'Wildflower' collection which was my favourite range of 2013. So much so that I bought the whole set. And that never normally happens as I'm much more of a pick 'n mix girl!

Anyway, as for all those sections of blue diamant√© mesh [from 3DJean] I dotted around the page:
... well, how could I not use those?

Not when they were just the perfect shade of sonic-screwdriver-blue!

I hope the sight of a scrapbooking page here didn't shock you too much today ... I know it's been a while! ;-)

Have a great weekend.

  1. Ohh just let me get over the shock of scrapbooking on your blog...............there you go all sorted. Love it and now I'm jealous, I want a Doctor with a sonic screwdriver,

  2. Glad to see a scrapbook page from you! So vibrant and clever and eclectic.

  3. Oh, THERE you are - I was getting worried, Julie! Lovely to see a scrapbooking page :). Such elegant colours against the white and all those intriguing bits - I especially like your writing on the palm of the hand (neat touch!). Isn't that bow tie fetching?

  4. Yep, it's so good to see a scrapbook page from you :) It's a stunner, too.

    I know what you mean. I'm a very select Dr Who fan too. Little E made a good one

  5. You really do have such great style; love this page!
    The Boy Child received a sonic screwdriver from Santa; I think he loved it more than the Star Wars lego, and that's saying something!

  6. its so good to see a layout and a fab one too x

  7. its so good to see a layout and a fab one too x

  8. So good to see you scrapping & a cracking page too x

  9. Yay for scrapbooking Julie! I was just thinking about getting back to some "traditional" scrapping myself! It's been sooooo long! Don't even know why - just been faffing with other stuff! Oh and Christmas! Lovely LO and I love all the little bitty bits you strategically place! More please! x
