As promised, I managed to put together a layout this weekend which wasn't for any Design Teams, which means I get to post it here first! Its called Remember, and showcases a photo of Ed waiting to play the Last Post (which he does all round Coventry during November). The photo was actually taken by a local newspaper photographer and Ed's mum sent off for it because she liked it so much.
I used the August Sarah's cards kit which contains papers by Gin-X. I made the poppy and curled the petals round a pencil to make it stand out. I decided to use gold embossed stamping because I wanted to draw out the beautiful gold engravings on the wall behind Ed. I decided to use two verses of the poem by John Macrae rather than doing my own journalling - I think it says it all.

I do like the finished piece although something about it bothers me - I wanted to use a handwritten font but perhaps the Capital R is a bit too big and makes the top of the page a little sparse. (The colours are a little better in real life so the gold shows up more). However Ed who is the star of the layout likes it so that is the main thing!

I will be sharing some of my Design Team layouts tomorrow so pop back then if you want to take a look.
