A friend once told me she hadn't ever seen me wear pink until I had a little girl. I think she was probably right. Now, some years later, I can occasionally be spotted in a little pink something. And there's more - I scrapbook pink too. Last year I made a pastel pink Christmas page for Get It Scrapped. This year? Scrap365 asked me to write about scrapbooking with pastels at Christmas.
My article was published in the Scrap365 supplement inside December's Craft Stamper magazine.
I'm a bit sad as I look at it now because, as many of you will already know, there is to be no more Scrap365.
Writing for 365 has been a huge pleasure for me and I have to thank everyone involved for inviting me to be a part of it. It's been good.
And so maybe it's fitting that my last page is a little blue? Though the point of that October Afternoon turquoise is to show one way of going pastel at Christmas.
Here's my pink page from last year, too:
How about you? if you are making a Christmas album this year, or choosing new colours for your tree, are you going traditional? or are you pleased by pastels?
"At Christmas we..."
and I'm offering it as a starting point to anyone who'd like to give it a go too. See you there?
