I've been scrapbooking for a couple of years now and I have noticed that there are definitely trends and fashions that come and go. When I started there were buttons everywhere. All colours and shapes and sizes, but now they don't seem to be quite so evident. Butterflies have been popular for a little while now and also birds. But the thing I am loving that is appearing everywhere is bunting. It sparks off the imagination to happy times and celebrations, street parties, fetes and summer. While I am loving seeing what other people are doing with their bunting, I haven't actually put it onto any of my own pages. Well, clearly this was something that needed addressing! Before it went out of fashion and something else took its place.
As it was my daughter's birthday yesterday and she is the most fashionable person I know, it seemed appropriate to use a photo of her in a layout including bunting, a bird and a butterfly.
Update on the knitting - the presence of husband at the weekend meant that I wasn't able to give up hours to the project and then pretend I had been busy on other things for the rest of the day. But I have now finished the back and both fronts and am almost finished on the first sleeve. Baby Sophie, who is the person I am making it for, goes on her first holiday in 3 weeks time and I would like to have it finished for then (it gets chilly in the Algarve in the evenings!).
