Pretty Paper Party 1- Scrapping with strips


Shimelle's 'Pretty Paper Party' class has started......and has already inspired me to scrap a photo of little A that's been sitting there just waiting......the first prompt was to use strips......and I have plenty of those in my scrap box!! Apart from the larger pink piece that backs the photo......and was a very old piece that needed using up......and had the perfect sentiments on it........all the other pieces were already in strips!

  
I must admit I didn't use any of the sketches in the prompt.......but instead based the layout on Shimelle's Starting Point challenge.......which I loved this week.
And I just couldn't resist some lyrics from an old Beatles song as the title.....they just seemed perfect.....I can hear Ringo singing this in my head.
DD1 drives a very old [but very reliable] Vauxhall Astra.......and the journaling was her comment on first seeing this photo!!

What a fancy car she has :) I love this idea for using up strips - I never throw away even the smallest sliver I trim from a page so I have quite a collection I need to use
