Using my kits

I recently received an email from Quirky Kits Ideas Blog and just loved the layout which was being shown. You can see the layout here on the blog here.

I had received my latest kit from Noel Mignon and in it was some Distress Ink. I immediately thought of that and how I could use it to scraplift the above layout.

It was only when I had finished the layout and went to put it in my album that I realised I had already scrapped a very similar photo from that walk with almost identical wording! Oh well, I had great fun creating it!
And so I decided to create another page, this time from an earlier kit and using photos I KNEW I hadn't scrapped before from our trip to Wales last year.
I had kept the tickets from the railway journey for just on the year and I was so glad that I managed to find them to put on this layout!
So, after a few weeks of no scrapbooking I am making quite a dent in my stash as I am on HOLIDAY for a week! Really enjoying some time for me and taking it easy.

That sounds like bliss, bring able to catch up on scrapbooking after a drought - and I love the tickets tucked in like that. I admire your ability to keep and re-find things like tickets - I often bring them back and then somewhere they disappear. I clearly need A System!

I hope it was a wonderful holiday week. Nice pages - the flowers on the first caught my eye and made me smile.

I like that brick paper. Well done on finding the tickets.

I'm looking forward to some time off - need to organise that.
