Memory Mondays: Pad Thai in Thailand!

So in the back end of 2012 I ran a mini series (albeit a bit hit and miss) called Messy Mondays and some of my favourites are here and here. I was trying to think of a new idea for 2013 and have decided that my word of the year will be: REMEMBER.
One of the main reasons that I scrapbook is to capture the memories. I have been ill a lot recently and so have been revisiting some of my old diaries and love to look back at the funny little stories and memories from my teens and early twenties - usually about which boy I was crushing on and what he'd said to me and what he'd worn to a party. Actually I liked to make little sketches of the outfits I wore to big events and these are funny to look back on.
So Memory Mondays will be all about the story behind the layout.

This layout is all about my love of Pad Thai Noodles when I visited Thailand, back in 2007, with some friends.
The journalling reads:
"They were a total steal at only 20p and they were made fresh right in front of you. I liked mine with egg, extra chilli and peanuts. Here Cassie and Emma are enjoying their night time snack."

I busted out some old stash and used lots of stickers and my amazing travel themed washi tape with lots of passport stamps on it. I also used a title, sub title and a little journalling spot to explain the 5 w's behind the layout.


  1. Love this fun layout and how you shared the story with us! GREAT JOB!

  2. I love that layout.

    ..and I'm loving the idea of having lots of teenage diaries with sketches in. I wish I had written a diary way back then!

  3. Mel, you know you will have to share a page or two from your old diaries :) i so wish i'd kept mine. Although i'm not sure i'd know what i thought or said as some of it i wrote in shorthand (so my sisters couldn't snoop! Lol) fab page too.


I appreciate all of the comments - they fuel my blog. Thanks for visiting!
