It’s time for a little Saturday Inspiration today on Tell Your Story Every Day!
Each Saturday we invite friends from all over our community to scrap a beautiful and meaningful layout for your viewing pleasure.
Our guest today is the talented Cynthia (a/k/a MrsPeel). Let’s get to know a little bit more about Cynthia today!
My name is Cynthia, Mrs. Peel out there in digi land (from The Avengers, an old 60′s British TV show in black & white I grew up with). I’m a Brazilian living in London, UK, now for over 20 years.
I had many professions… I was in the musical theatre/music industry and as in my time we didn’t have net or home recording studios like Macs have now. I had to do different things when I had no music jobs, but can say proudly that spent 30 years on stage, was also a beautician, a tour guide in Rio, a health advocate, & worked for the Metropolitan Police, Immigrations and Customs & Excise here in the UK, amongst other jobs.
I am now retired, had to retire early because of some gone wrong operations in 2003, have a LOT of health conditions which I am battling every day and Scrapbooking is my main pain relief therapy.
I’m a scrapaholic, totally addicted, and my main subject is my (gorgeous!!!!!even if I’m biased!LOL) 16 years old daughter Sarita. Our books are a kind of mixture of Project 52 weeks, 365, no rules, just scrapping events and daily life for her to have in the future. I know I am so thankful my mum kept so many photos…but at times she doesn’t know who the people in the photos are/were, or what was going on…and there is where I see the difference from albums to scrapbooking. My pages almost 99% of the time have journaling (or so many photos you get what is going on LOL). I love almost any style of digi scrapping, but prefer the imitating paper style. If I look at my page and feel I can touch the elements, then that makes my heart sing!
Here is the layout that Cynthia created for us using Roots and Wings. Cynthia created a 2-page Layout, because that’s what she’s most comfortable creating. Feel free to lift either side, or if you’re feeling especially adventurous, go ahead and do the 2-pager!
I love how Cynthia scraps everyday life and fits so many photos beautifully on the page. The two pages match up so amazingly, too!
Today’s challenge is simple:
Take this layout, find something you love about it and scraplift it!
Use whatever kit or collection you like. There are no other requirements for this challenge.
And when you’re done, come back here, link us up and show us your story. You could be featured in next week’s post!
I hope you will join us this week! I look forward to seeing what you create.
