Making Your Own Background Paper ...

Scrapbookers - Ever tried using your scanner and printer to make your own background paper??


Head on over to Aussie Scrapbooking for a read of my piece on a quirky way to add to your background paper stash.  OK - possibly to the daggy pile of paper but haven't we all got room for a bit of that in our collection.  (Yes and in my wardrobe - hee hee.)


Hard to believe that funny little image is Hannah.  How fast the time flies ....


Which reminds me - Anita had a quote on a blog post recently that really struck a cord with me.   It is here if you'd like a gentle reminder to appreciate the things that matter most in our lives.  

Some days I get it, some days I need to read some words of wisdom to get my perspective back, ....... some days I need them stapled to my forehead! 

I like this one too ....

Only when the clamour of the outside world is silenced will you be able to hear the deeper vibration.  Listen carefully.    Sarah Ban Breathnach


Take care,

Thanks girls. Love your mini album idea Anita and definitely plan to give that one a go.

Fantastic idea Sue. Those ultrasound pics are hard to deal with. I hadn't really thought of printing my own background paper. Very clever! Gorgeous pics of Hannah too!
Thanks for the link to my blog. I'm all about appreciating the little things at the moment. Check out my new mini album for a great way to stay focussed on the things that matter all year. I reckon you'd love a project like this.
Thanks again for your inspiration and creative ideas; Anita. xxx


WOW Sue thanks for the fabulous idea! I have my daughter's baby ultrasound photos here and she asked if I can scrapbook them! Now I know how I can spiff them up! TFS
