I hope you all had a wonderful and peaceful Christmas time!
I am keen to get my 2015 scrapping off to a great start so in preparation I've been having a bit of a sort out of my craft space recently and earlier today I found myself putting away some of my recent layouts. But before I put them in my albums I took a few photos as there was a fair few I've not yet shown you.
First up is this "River Photos" layout, made at the recent scrapbook weekend!
I'm lucky enough to live near both the beach and the River Stour and so tend to have a never ending supply of both beach and river photos to scrap.
This particular day was just another weekend stroll by the river ... with my daughter in the mood for posing for a few photos!! She only took a little bit of persuasion!
I took inspiration from this "Explore" layout which I had pinned onto my Pinterest board quite a while ago.
I changed the original layout to include my 3 photos rather than 2 photos + a journal card and also moved the embellishment cluster to the bottom left corner.
I used some Echo Park papers from their "This & That" Collection which I received in my "Secret Santa" gift on the retreat. Thanks to Paula for the loan of the gorgeous border punch and to Lisa-Jane for the pink Cosmo Cricket "Tiny Text" stickers. The camera stamp is by Stampin Up and is coloured with pro marker pens.
Here's some close ups of the details ...
Thanks so much for stopping by today .... I'll be back soon with another layout to show you!
Are you ready to kick start your 2015 crafting?
