In 2003 I went to Japan for a student exchange and when I came home made a scrapbook about the trip. At the time I was so impressed with myself and although I still LOVE looking through my work, i've realised that my pages weren't quite as great as I thought. At least I can say I was young - although i'm not sure that i've improved at all  Wink

Anyway here they are:

This was the first scrapbook page I ever made. I spent days agonising over the colour schemes, the papers, everything! ANd then I ended up spelling the title incorrectly!! Tongue




This one looks fairly simple, but the kettle actually opens up to be a 10page book which took a REALLY long time to make!




I really like the little apron in this one:






Vegemite anyone?


I made the abacus while doing a course for my boat license:


My favourite page is probably the one on the right - it's pretty Smiley


Thanks for looking!! And please excuse my mum's feet which made their way into almost every picture!

What a well-designed, beautiful, and interesting scrapbook.  I really like the multicolored picture frames and the personal touches like the tea kettle book.
