Inspired by Jo!

Jo, over at Buckingham's Palace has decided to print off her five favourite photos from her phone each month and scrap them and has invited us to join her in her venture if we wish. I thought it was a brilliant idea and yesterday, as it was my last day of holiday, spent the afternoon scrapping my five faves from December.

I haven't actually made five layouts this time though, as this layout has two photos on!

This one I had a bit of a disaster with! I was shaking my glimmer mist bottle, only I had already unscrewed the top! I ended up with glimmer mist over me, the desk, the floor and a couple of big blobs on the layout - one I covered with the lace at the bottom, the other with the snowflake!
This is the third layout...

And my final layout ..

For all of these layouts I used my Noel Mignon Cable Knit kit, which I have thoroughly enjoyed using at last! About the only thing I have added is the glimmer mist and some blue alphas in the top layout.

Looking forward to joining in with Jo again next month. Thanks for this great inspiration to get those photos off the phone and onto layouts Jo :)

It's such an inspirational idea, isn't it? If I had to pick a favourite from these (and I'm glad I don't!) I'd say the Christmas card writing one. it's a lovely picture and has made a really nice page

Such a great plan for a new year - and although your mishap can't have been funny, there is something lovely about starting 2015 in a glimmery mist! I also like your Christmas one a lot - the little banner is a pretty touch and just underlines that great photo.

Wow you were quick! I really love the layouts that you've done and it's great to know that I've inspired you to get photos off of your phone and in to your albums. Thank you for joining in x

I think this is a great idea of Jo's and hope to play along too...only problem is I'm out of printer ink and it's a holiday here today, so the shops are all closed :(
Love the layouts xx
