All About Me Sketch - Page 2 - New Shoes!

This is a scrapbook page I put together for the 'All about me' group I belong to and it features yours truly aged three. The sketch idea came from Gill at 'Scrappin' Creations' and I have tried to be as faithful to the layout as possible with just a few deviations.

The black and white photo was taken at a photographer's studio (which was all the rage back then) and I'm sure as I unearth more images of myself,  we will see those floor tiles and maybe that table turn up in later presentations. And get a load of those shoes! They don't make them like that any more and 'Thank Crunchie for that', I hear you say! I don't think 'FASHION' had been invented yet, and if it was, the news hadn't reach us at the time. LOL

The photo, which is a print of an emailed photo, is a bit grainy and dictated the colour scheme. Brighter colours seems too harsh up against the black and white.  All of the elements came from my stash. Blue background, ribbon, diamante and heart are from various kits and I used my Cricut to cut out the letters and the frame for the photo. The 30x30 page is from a paper-pack from my local craft shop in Germany.

She's such a cutie, don't you think?
