Tuesday Talk

Well I'm back from my little sortie down to Hampshire - so good to revisit the places where I grew up. And I've a scrapbook page, prepared before I went away, but sharing today.

I'm entering it into two challenges - The Memory Nest Make It Monday and Challenge YOUrself.

http://thememorynest.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/make-it-monday-no-91.html   http://scrap-challenge-yourself.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/challenge-yourself-43-handwritten.html

Here's my page:

I used the sketch from The Memory Nest, but changed up the circles to the Uniko Explosion stamps. The photo is not the best, but the memory is! One of those special moments when we really connected in the fun of what we were doing.

This is the first time I've played at Challenge YOUrself and they require a photo of you in the layout. Their extra ask this month is for handwritten journalling and since this is something I love to do on my pages it seemed a bit of a bonus rather than a challenge.

I finished off my page with a frame of hand drawn lines and a trio of hearts. I used to do this a lot on layouts, but not so much recently, so it was good to give it another go.

Paper: Bazzil Basics cardstock 
Stamps: Uniko, Explorion & Explosion Additions
Inks: SU, wisteria wonder, elegant eggplant
Die: Lawn Fawn, Louie's ABCs
Embellishments: Freckled Fawn, Hello; Mei Flower & Blng Bling black gems

I'm so pleased you found my blog today, loved having your company for a short while. And keep crafting!
