I said I wouldn't but....

I did say I was going to clear up my scrap room before I did any more crafting but I forgot that I needed to get this month's 4x6 photo love done.  Luckily I had 7 portrait photos in my pile from Wales last year so that's a few more completed.  What was that?  7 photos you say?  Why yes indeed!  On ONE page!

The photo on the right is attached to the page but the photo on the left is a little concertina book of several more.

One of the panels is used as a journalling block so in theory, you could add 8 photos to this page but I love it just like this.

This is the other side of the book opened out.  Its a great little idea for those situations where you can't choose which photo to use but they are all similar or part of the same aspect of the story.

The papers are My Minds Eye Good Day Sunshine Boy and I love the way they have worked out for this project.  I cut into one of the bigger designs to get the cute little beach hut and surfboard.  I'm so happy with this layout - coordinated packs are great for me.

Sadly I didn't win any of the prizes from Shimelle's cycber crop but all the challenges are still available for you to participate in at your own leisure.  I got 10 layouts completed, plus adding the journalling to one and it encouraged L to do another layout too to I think WE are the real winners.

Now I really MUST clear up as I want to crack on with Explore before LSNED starts - can you believe its only a few days away!

Bye for now.



  1. Great LO...haven't done mine yet-must get on with that! Perfect papers for the pics!

  2. That is a lovely LO - I have to do 6 and 7 but just had a delivery of photos today so should be able to complete. Love your beach hut!

  3. You couldn't have picked better papers for this project. It's just fabulous

  4. Hi Lisa Jane - the letters on my Pimms page were American Crafts Thickers called Meadow in a squash colour x

  5. Great LO - I have lots of those photos to scrap to, so love the way yours opens out and the papers are perfect - beautiful :)

  6. Great layout Lisa, love the pull out section with extra photos on.

    I have decided to do a 6x4 Teresa Collins bracket album for LSNED in the end, but like you I am still finishing up my last course (the Big Idea Festival over at Big Picture Scrapbooking, if you haven't tried them take a look - I have to admit I just sign on to the free ones!)

  7. What a great way to scrap those fab photos of your boy :o)
    I noticed you're doing LSNED, so see you in class xx

  8. Darn, I lost my comment. :-(

    Just wanted to say- love your page! Looks like your boy had lots of fun!! Also, I agree with you about the coordinated packs- makes it quite easy to get everything matching!


Hi there! Thanks for leaving me a message! It always makes me smile when someone stops by and says hello :-)
