Hello all and welcome once more to my blog!

A few days ago, the very talented Shimelle posted a layout about her first job. I loved reading her story and it totally inspired me to create a layout about my first job too.

The story behind my first job is very long, as it wasn’t just a job, it was the family business. So I go on for quite a bit with the journalling on this layout! I had to even write at the back and even then I don’t think I told all the story! I have a feeling I may have to find another photo and create another layout to compliment this one.

For this page I used mainly papers and embellishments from My Mind’s Eye “Palm Beach” collection. I bought these with the idea of scrapbooking a few photos of my honeymoon in Hawaii, however the palm trees and colours suited perfectly with the theme of this layout so I didn’t hesitate to use them. I can always buy more if I find I need them for my honeymoon layouts.

As you would have imagined, this layout will be going to the Book of Me, which is coming along quite nicely! Just the other day I was going through all my childhood photos and I have so many to scrap! 🙂

A couple more closeups. Those gold palm trees are so gorgeous! I love them!!
