January 2015 Scrapbook Page

18 February 2015

After seeing an instagram post by Lily Pebbles featuring her 2014 scrapbook, it quickly became a New Years Resolution to start one for 2015. I've got so many exciting events this year (immediate family members turning 50, 21 and 18 within the first three months, my DLP holiday and my Florida holiday to name a few), that I really wanted to keep a visual record of everything. So, armed with copious rolls of wash tape and my Project Life folder, here's the January page that I've put together.
On January 1st 2015, my Mum turned the grand old age of 50. It was a lovely way to kick off the New Year, we went out for a meal in the day and then had a party with family and friends - and those amazing Westie cakes! - in the evening. I saved a little bit of the silver ribbon which I wrapped Mum's presents up with, and stuck it in my scrapbook using double sided sticky tape, along with photographs.
After the excitement of Christmas and New Year, January calmed down a little until the middle of the month, when I went down to London for the day with my Dad to a Sherlock Holmes exhibition at the Museum of London. We're both huge Sherlock fans, so I bought the tickets for my Dad as a birthday present at the end of last year. The exhibition was really brilliant, and the day was perfect, with a delicious lunch at Palm Court Brasserie in Covent Garden, and then a stroll down Carnaby Street in the evening before our train home.  It was a great day out and one of the highlights of my month, so I've included my exhibition and train tickets, as well as a card from the restaurant and a couple of photographs as a memento. The rest of January was a fairly quiet affair, although I couldn't resist snapping a few Polaroids of the snow at the end of the month.

I'm really pleased with my first attempt at scrapbooking, and I think that the different sizes of photographs and tickets together, along with the washi tape, look really pretty. I'm already excited to put together my February page as so many exciting things have happened so far this month, and I love how therapeutic it feels to work on a page. After spending most of the day staring at a screen, it's lovely to have a creative outlet once a month, and I can't wait to see the finished book at the end of the year.
