Under the sea!

This layout is loosely based on a Shimelle sketch, from quite a while ago, but one that she uses in a variety of ways and I have used it several times too. It is a really good fall back if you have three portrait photos to use.
The stars were chipboard and I covered them with seed beads which I had. They ended up a little lumpy, but I am happy with the effect.The title was made up with Thickers cut up to make the ones I didn't have! The first E is an F with a bit added, the d is an upside down p and the second E was made from an H! I've nearly used the whole of this sheet up now! I really don't think I can make any more words up from it. What would you do with the rest of the sheet? Keep it and mix it with other Thickers or throw it away?
A close up of the journalling. 
 This weekend we are back down to Folkestone to pick Penny up on Saturday morning, along with a load of boxes of her belongings. She has to move out of her flat by 30th June, so although we are going to hire a van to bring her furniture back we thought that we would move all the smaller items this weekend using my car. On Sunday we are popping over to Hemel to see Mum and Dad as they moved house last Friday. They are now living in the same cul-de-sac as my sister and her family. I haven't seen the house yet, so I am very excited about that! Monday we have no plans for so far - it would be nice to think that I could spend the whole day scrapping, but we will have to wait and see!

Like that sea-themed piece of rope/string along the bottom - just perfect. Good luck with all the moving of things too.

There is something classic about a 3 photo layout - yours is great - I especially like the twine.

That's a super looking layout. Sounds like you had a busy weekend. Hope you did manage to squeeze in some scrapping time.
