days out layout

 (And why can't the photos rotate automatically...)

I decided to use a compass mask that I just re-found so create some layers and depth, and used some mist droplets too for this layout.
 Scrunched some washi tape and Tim Holtz ruler ribbon.  And added simple journalling - where we were, with who, and why....
The photographs are from our day out in Manchester after our trip to the Lake District

I love using my Instax camera.

Traditonal Layout - Journey 2014

I printed out this photograph of my Mom at the Lake District a couple weeks ago and then forgot what layout I had planned.  So I decided to use this as my entry for the Scrap365 Sketch Challenge.

I used some circle stamps to create the two semi circles in the sketch. Added my photograph at the edge and then glued on some wood travel themed embellishments.  A few strips of washi tape acts as a base for the title.  I might move the '2014' - it looks a little out of place...

Playing Around

 I was playing around with a camera or two during the week.
 I blipped the non-edited (lightened and cropped) shot of this Trellis photograph.
Just a few minutes wondering around in the garden.

Lake District Layouts

 I've finished these layouts from the Lake District.  I still have a mini album to finish and I have some more layouts I want to create.
 The top photograph in "Waterfalls" is the current winner of the crocked  angle.  But I was planning on using this photograph like this - so it didn't matter to my scrapbooker mind.
 I seem to have grown an affection for sheep photographs. Thin washi tape as my journalling lines, some enamal dots and a light doodled border.
 I LOVE this paper! After climbing a 500 foot mountain, we had lunch and took some photographs and got lost coming back down... (Mom just said it was 550 metres...)
The last day and these two beautiful lake shots. Washi tape, awesome patterned paper and transparent letters.

I so love this creative work.  My favourite place is my craft room.
