I FINALLY managed to complete the layout that was causing me so much trouble the other day - God knows why it was so difficult, but I stayed up last night and it eventually clicked into place. The layout, Stylish Girls, is about my friends Mags and Suzanne on a recent night out - I thought these photos of them were gorgeous and just had to be scrapped.
The papers are by Gin-X from the August Sarah's Cards kit, and I made my own paper too by scanning the pages from my copy of Wuthering Heights (I love the idea of using torn book paper, but unfortunately I can't actually bring myself to tear up a book, its like sacrilege). The hearts are part stamped (using Autumn Leaves stamps), and partly chipboard using a Cuttlebug die. The bits of lace and ric rac are from my Little Silver Hat subscription kit.
The journalling reads:
A night to dress up, have fun, and be ourselves without the men!
A night to share our secrets and enjoy a bit of 'us' time.
A night to boost a lovely girl's battered self esteem.
A night to enjoy our friendship.
I am really pleased with the page now it is finally done, though its a bit delicate and I think I will have to come up with a way of gluing some of the bits down a bit more securely!
I am certainly enjoying my half term holidays - Ed is off today and tomorrow too which is great (though we did spend part of the morning arguing over new baths, designs of tiles and underfloor heating!). I'm off to visit mum and dad for the rest of the week, so no scrapping time but it will be great to catch up with my family again.
