Introducing our April 2022 guest scrapbooker Ali Bown

Posted by Linda Gransby on

Ok, here goes !

I live in rural Nottinghamshire with my husband. All three of our children are grown up and married now and we are blessed with 5 adorable grandchildren, aged from 3 weeks to 7 years old, plus 3 older step grandchildren. They all live close by so I always have an abundance of photos to scrap !

We love to travel and I have photos from three major trips that are slowly getting scrapped and into albums. It was on a stay in the USA in the late 1990’s that I discovered Creative Memories and scrapbooking and that was it I was hooked.

I would consider my scrapping style to be relatively clean and simple and I like the photos to be the focus of my pages. I take a LOT of photos so using a sketch for a multi photo double page like Linda shares each week is great to use as a starting point for my pages.

Journalling is important, and after going through several of my aunt's old family albums I feel dates, and names of people and places are absolutely vital for future reference. 

Hopefully my children and grandchildren will appreciate my scrapping efforts in years to come!
