Retro scrapping... * Warning photo heavy *

Soooo unexpectedly the hubsters is away for the day and so I have been doing a bit of sorting out and found some old albums that I realised I haven't shown on my blog. There is plenty more to come but I have tried to pick out some of my favs. This page is all about my love of reading. The pic was taken in Italy when we had a few hours to kill till the train. It is a gorgeous pic that just reeks summertime chillaxing! This is another fav layout of our trip to Thailand a few summers ago. I used lots of cork and tearing and even a little cocktail umbrella. There is hidden journalling under the photo on the bottom left. I never use hidden journalling anymore. It is interesting looking at old scrapping.
A page about one of our fav activities when I first moved to Leeds - bonfires on Otley Chevin. I like the big BABY title and the strip journalling - it really pops.
A page about the icecream farm in Chester that our family loves to visit. Quite simple and made with A QVC kit so it all co-ordinates well.
A simple, but effective, layout about a cute little Cafe in London we went to on one of our first trips to London as a couple. The heart is from some flowers he sent me. I am always on the look out for freebie embellies.
This is one of my fav layouts of all time. The title is lyrics of one of our fav songs from when we first started dating. This was scrapping I did before I had loads of stash and so I had to be more creative but I think all the embellies and stuff work really well on this. It also has secret journalling about what a romantic he was when we first got together.
This page is from a big pack from Costco. I enjoyed colouring it in and sticking stuff on. I think it looks effective with the little pics across the top. The pics are of our cycle ride to Sluis in Holland.
Our friend is a dentist and so gave us some scrubs. Since I am obsessed with Grey's Anatomy I made a layout about it. Lots of stamping and some embossing. Again quite *vintage* techniques, that I should try to use again.
Hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane as much as I did! Hope your still with me! Ha! xxx
