Productive week (so far)

After feeling in a scrappy slump a couple of weeks ago when none of my photos were appealing to me, I've pulled myself together and had a productive week so far. I found two sketches I liked before going through my photos and pulling out ones I've had for ages but have always bypassed and not considered worthy of scrapping. The first sketch I chose was this one
I chose two photos taken on the lead up to Christmas 2013 when we went on our traditional visit to a local garden centre to look at the Christmas decs. 
I decided to have lots of colour on this layout to match the ones in the photos, as well as a pop of gold for the masks. Papers are Dear Lizzy, Maggie Holmes and MME. I admit the stickers below the doily don't really show but never mind. 

The next sketch I chose was this one 
I chose two photos taken during a lunch break last summer. Starting a new job in a couple of weeks I won't be seeing this view on my break and I will journal about this in the top corner. 
I used papers from Simple Stories, I thought the everyday moments sentiment was very apt. The "Bright sunshiny day" sentiment is also Simple Stories but a different collection. 


  1. Two really lovely layouts, love the pop of gold in the first one provided by the doiley. The quote for the second layout is just perfect

  2. Yep, love these two as well! I think the views from your lunch break are fab - so glad you've scrapped them for posterity xx
