Lazy Sunday Afternoon

So this is the double layout, eventually finished, and called Lazy Sunday Afternoon. It turned out to take a really long time but I'm pleased with the finished result.

The layout is about the barbecue we had last Sunday when my brother was visiting. I chose to use some SEI Winnie's Walls papers that I've had for ages, pretty much since I began scrapping in fact! The summery colours are perfect for the layout. I also used some orange paper that I picked up at a class but can't remember the brand.

The little butterflies are stamped using Autumn Leaves and Docrafts stamps, and the main decoration other than that are my beloved pearl brads and TONS of stitching to make the little butterfly trails. All the journalling is handwritten onto orange cardstock and the title is handcut (apart from the bit printed on acetate). I chose to use some of the Small Faces lyrics on my page (I am a massive sixties music fan!) because I thought they summed up the feel of a lost afternoon.

I've got to admit, I don't think I'll be attempting another double layout straight away - they take ages! But they are perfect for when you have a lot of photos to tell a story and you don't want to leave any out.


  1. What a gorgeous layout. I saw it on UKS, so I thought I would check out your blog and I am glad I did. I saw on one of your layouts that you was born in April 82, guess what me too, yours is not the 14th is it! How mad would that be!
    Hope you have a fab weekend.

  2. Stunning layout. Love the stitching and butterflies :)
