A cardmaker who scraps or vice versa?

So I did a LO yesterday of the boys at Whipsnade a few years ago. I was stuck for inspiration so I have to admit I did use someone else's design with a few of my own touches.
The papers (which are old ones!) are very bright but amazingly match the boys shirts and I have used a flower on a boy LO!!!

I am loving scrapbooking at the mo. I think the whole idea of making something for me for a change is doing me some good and I am using up some of the stash I have had hanging around for years.
I have hundreds of photos which are either in an album or on my computer and I want to use them. I want to make something which shows off my family and all of our special memories. Life is so short but memories last a lifetime and I want my boys to look back at the LOs and remember all of those special times we had.
I will always make my own cards but I am thinking that scrapping is going to be my first love in the future.

I am loving your LO's Clare!
I find that once I do one LO have to do more too. Keep up the good work.

Clare, Another fab LO. I love scrapping as it uses up all my odds and ends of stash. It is a great way to keep your memories.
