Creating a summer scrapbook| Giveaway

With the summer well and truly behind us it’s the perfect time to look back over the memories we have made. How do you like to store yours? Maybe a blog like me or maybe your a real crafty type who like scrapbooking. I have to say I love the idea of a scrapbook – I love looking back through old photo albums but in recent years I find myself printing of less and less photos. Scrapbooking is a way to let your creativity shine through and make yourself something really beautiful to keep forever.

Stampin’ Up! have shared with me a great ‘how to’ for creating a summer scrapbook which makes it look so simple, I wanted to share it with you guys and give you the chance to win some goodies from them as well!
