Recuperation scrapbooking!

Whilst I was recuperating last week I managed to squeeze into the conservatory and make a couple of layouts.

I bought this collection of paper with the intention of using them for all my summer pages and then promptly forgot I had them! I was looking through my papers last week and found them, so decided to use as many of them as I could on the layouts.
I had bought quite a few of the printed vellum sheets, so cut them up and used them on this layout. The papers are all Websters pages, either Ocean Melody, or in the other layout below, Strawberry Fields.
There were also some Project Life type cards on a sheet which I also cut apart to use up.
I've still got quite a few sheets left, so watch out for more layouts being created using them in the future!
I really like these lines of papers, but actually find them quite difficult to use! I am hoping that now the conservatory is back to normal I can find some plainer papers to mix with them and use them all up.

Do you like photo realistic papers or do you find them difficult to use too?

I find them almost impossible to use, so I'm admiring what you have done here

I echo what Sian has said. I don't think they are for me.

I have had a few sea/sand ones in my stash forever, and wouldn't have a hope of making anything as imaginative as these, Becky. You've managed to blend the backgrounds with your photos so well. Glad to hear you are on the mend :).

I love the papers you've used and I must admit they're some of my fav ones. I love how you've used them xxx

Wow - you have been so productive this year! Great layouts!

Very nice! I've really enjoyed scrapping more this month.

I find them hard to use - I tend to cut them into smaller pieces or have the photos well matted to ensure they don't disappear. Lovely pages :)

I find them hard to use but you've done a really great job x
