Happy Bank Holiday Monday. Do you have that where you live – or is it a UK only thing? I took Puddle Duck to church yesterday for the Crowning of Our Lady. She took a spray of white chrysanthemums to lay by Mary’s statue at the front of the church. Then we went to The Grandma’s for a very late family dinner. I think today will be a lazy day.
But on with the scrapbooking. Here’s the second layout I have to show you from the crop on Saturday, using my Counterfeit kit for May:
I mixed the two kits up a bit – using the spots from my Cruise Line kit with my Star gazer kit. I really struggled with a title. I couldn’t remember where we were in the Natural History Museum when I took these photos. The background paper is of the night sky, which is what is on the walls of this room and I had star buttons and metal brad so i finally hit on Star Gazer. I added the journalling after I had found Puddle Duck’s guidebook and discovered that it was the Earth Hall. I also doodled some lines around the journal and title blocks. Something I find myself doing more and more right now – wonder where that came from all of a sudden?
I’m linking this up to Shimelle’s second NSD challenge to use 4 X 6 photos (I nearly always do because it’s the smallest size that is easy to order!). I have some more to share during the week and I am currently struggling with the divide your page challenge. I’m using a mix of full 12 X 12s and divided pages in my London album. With what I have done so far, my Shrek photos fall on a divided page. I have got this far and I am not feeling the love:
Me thinks it may be time to put it to one side and try something else. And I do have lots to go at, having bought even more pp yesterday. If there is a TKMaxx or Home Sense near you, it is well worth a visit right now – lots of Crate Paper and AC paper pads, pens, ribbon, date stamps and loads more.
I’m off to get out my mists – do you think I should get dressed and eat breakfast first?
