This "bookweek" page is made using the last (and possibly most intimidating) of my scrap cardstock backgrounds. To be honest, when I first made them, I wasn't sure how successful they were. Not that I didn't like them, but I'm always a bit nervous making something without an end result in mind. What if I never use it and it just sits in my stash for all eternity? But I've used all five and am happy to say I might repeat the process again. I love how you can make what is really quite a simple page and it looks like that much more effort has been put in!
Ah, Hamish, what a beautiful puppy you were! Not that he's not still a beautiful dog, now, of course! But that soft, fluffy, puppy coat! This is one of my favourite all time photos of him and I think I've managed to do it justice on this page.
All the papers and wood veneers on this page were from the kit. I've added some clusters of goodies from Pink Paislee I won from Jennifer's Jumbles last year (Hi Jennifer!).
Lastly I added some ribbon, and some of my first attempt at a DIY-washi-style tape. I hope to perfect the technique and I'll share it with you then.
So from a kit that ended up containing 6 sheets of patterned paper, 5 scrap cardstock backgrounds and one sheet of journalling cards I'm left with:
a nice amount of paper left, and most of the journalling cards.
I'm thinking I might keep it all together for a bit longer, as I've another page in the pipeline.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll leave a message to let me know you've been!
P.S. I loved that page of Hamish so much, I've linked this page to the Layout Love Linky at purplemailbox.com, so welcome, if you've found me from there!
