I'm feeling a little sad that my California albums are nearly completed! I know that I can always grab another photo and add it in at some point, but this has been such a big part of my life for over a year, but at least it means I'll be able to finish 2012 off before 2013 ends!
This was another of those papers bought in America printed with the Hollywood sign and the hills in the background. I struggled with using it as a whole until I decided that I didn't have to, I could cover up the top of it and it would get use and the important bit would still be seen.
The letter stickers were some I have had for ages and they were just the right colour. I dug through my stash to find journalling cards and stickers which went well with the papers from bits I had left from doing the albums.
The gems were a strip and I cut them up and used them up! That is what I am really trying hard to do with old stash now - use it or lose it! I've given away quite a bit to friends recently of stash that I really won't use and they have been really happy to receive it, so it is a win/win situation.
So, I know that I have probably two or three layouts of Universal Studios to do and then I want to do a closing page for the album. I've got a few ideas for that, but I think I will probably go with a 'numbers' page, similar to Julie Kirk's Month in Numbers, but it will be 'holiday in numbers'. Watch this space!
