Scrapping farewells

We constantly seem to be saying hello and goodbye to our children as they experience life to the full. Our eldest DS, was home after 8 months in Paris, for a celebration of his birthday and then off on another adventure this time to Argentina. He's studying languages at university and has to spend this year abroad speaking French and Spanish. I am so envious and yet so glad we have encouraged him to be adventurous. This page tells the story of his usual chaotic packing and whilst I was sad he was going I did have a laugh as his 15  year old sister organised his packing and bossed him around. It worked and he got it all into his rucksacks.
I used a number of different digital kits from Owl Tree Studios - JLD Fresh Memories for the title and green paper, SKD Month brush and WBI Muse for the papers and elements. I doubled two frame ups around the photos and like the effect. The photos were snaps on my phone and tell a story rather than act as strong photographs.


  1. I am impressed she managed to get all those clothes into his rucksack. Great page - I didn't realise it was digi until you said :)
