Last weekend I managed to get some time in the conservatory (my scrapping space) to do some layouts. I am slowly working my way through photos from 2013 - it is really nice looking back at all the happy memories of last year.
This one I based it on one Shimelle's Sketch to Scrapbook Page number 33. The idea is to use a patterned paper and allow the pattern to show. I have had this paper in my stash forever with the idea of cutting out the paisley bits and using them on a layout as embellishments. However, I never had the right layout! I actually quite like how it looks using it this way - it is not too busy. I am pleased with the arrow paperclips - Hugh found them for me when we were last in Ikea!
Life is still pretty stressful here - family matters which are slowly sorting themselves, but it is not leaving me much time to myself, which I could do with. I relish the time I take every day for a walk - it is me time, with no distractions and gives me time to think. I am hoping that by the time February arrives life might be a bit more settled. Here's hoping!
