Scrapping as rehab!

This week I have been back to work after a few months off with a blip with my mental health. Having said that I am on a phased return to ensure I ease myself back to work and don’t rush in a crash again! So today was a day off work, and I have to say after two days I was shattered so it was such a good idea.

After a coffee and toast at Sainsburys I headed home and started scrapping … Such great therapy!

I am working on my Disneyland album at the moment, amongst other things, and this brings such pleasure to remember all the fun of what we got upto!

I think the best part of today’s creativity was when I found a surprise in the pile of stuff we kept after the holiday which I will share in a minute!

So here is the page I made of the most important moment of meeting Mickey Mouse!

I kept most of the layout simple, but added some bits and pieces of scrap I couldn’t put in the bin from the crop I was at at the weekend like the chevron punch leftover! The papers and sticker embellishments are from a Simple Stories kit called Say cheese which I got especially for the Disney album as this is what they are themed towards. As I had quite a bit of journaling (I was making an effort to do better journaling as I watched the Mel Keaton Sunday scrappers I had recorded at the weekend on C&C which inspired me!)’ I hid this on a tag in a pocket behind the picture. I then hunted through the ephemera we had left from the holiday to find the autograph from Mickey.

But the real find was in the same notebook and it was a letter Maya had written to Mickey which I had no idea about!!

Now this is perfect for scrapbooking! What a perfect thing to find and to keep. I just adore this! So both this and the autograph are tucked into the pocket behind the photo for safe keeping.

I did do some other pages too today but will share those at another time!

Happy crafting!
