Well, I wanted to start with the last week I had, with my scrap-book friends, at Mon Repos, a nature resort between Nylstroom(Modimole) and Warmbaths(Bele Bela) in 2008.

I started looking for my photos to use on my blog but ….

I don’t have them anymore! It seems that I have lost them. I looked through all my files of photos and none are to be found.

I did some pages using lots of photos. I am going to use my pages to show what I have done with them and also to show what a wonderful place it was to do my last scrap-book session.

The first is an album we made while we were there. Karen our organizer always had some extra tips and classes up her sleeves.

We had to make some rusty letters and small objects for the album

The front page shows the letters.

I enjoyed the week very much!

  1. wOW! You are sooooo talented! i couldn’t even dream of creating anything like this…and I’m the creative one of the family. Were you perhaps a visual arts teacher by chance?! This is so beautiful. I am going to reblog this, when I make a post about things I like soon.

    • Oh, thank you for compliment! I have tutored many scrap book classes in South Africa. I started in 2005 tutoring up to 2009 when I moved to New Zealand. You are welcome to reblog. I am just sad that I had to take photos of the photos! 🙂

  2. Great stuff Ineke. It would be more effective I think if you don’t put so many photos on at one time, because you switch off when there’s such a lot. The viewer misses the impact.
