Travelling back in time

In February my friend Vicky had a special birthday (I made the Phoebe bag for her) and to celebrate that birthday she decided to have a 1940's themed party. It was a great night with everybody really getting into the spirit of it. My Mum found me a tea dress on sale in Cath Kidston and I bought a 1940's style wig off eBay.

I found the perfect papers to scrap the photos, Cosmo Cricket, the colours are perfect. I also used a idea that was on the Trip Down Memory Lane blog. Mel had designed a layout that reminded me of a patchwork quilt. I love the idea, so I have borrowed it. I am really pleased with end result and I can't wait to show Vicky.

Easter holidays are proving to be very busy and the sunshine is proving a great distraction from crafting. My scrapbooking output has dropped a lot. I am hoping that my 100 pages is still doable. I do have other projects on the go that I will hopefully have completed for next time I blog.

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine x


  1. What a fantastic lo Becca - love your 1940's look.

  2. Oh I love this Becca!
    Love the idea of a 1940's party, you all looked so convincing in your costumes I thought the photos were originals! Love the layout too. As you say, the colours are just perfect. Cosmo Cricket are one of my papers.
