Some holiday double-pagers

A lot's been happening in my craft room over the last week or so, especially this weekend, which is my semi-regular stay-home-while-Rob-takes-the-kids-down-to-visit-his-mother-while-I-stay-home-and-scrapbook-weekend!

This morning I posted my first of a series of craft room organisation posts, this one on alphabet storage, so if that's something you might be interested in, I invite you to scroll on down and have a read.    The next instalment will be on papers and cardstock, and I plan to have that one up in the next day or so.

As well as organisation, I've managed to do a mammoth 14 double-page spreads for my self-made challenge to do 20 double scrapbook pages. 

Many of them are stock-standard school class photos, which I have no intention of boring you with.  But I do have a couple to share today, both from the same family camping trip, nearly ten years ago:

You didn't think I'd be able to do 20 double pagers without the help of at least one sketch from Lets Scrap, did you?  I know I didn't.

The next page utilises their current sketch:

And here's my take on it:

We had picked a windy week for this particular camping holiday, and I thought the white flourishes did a nice job of representing the wind without detracting from the photos.  This page depicts a couple of the activities we did while escaping from the windy beach-side caravan park.

I hadn't originally intended to add the butterflies, but did so in order to disguise a rather nasty splatter incident.  Again, being white, I don't think they distract too much from the story.

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you're finding yourself some crafty time this weekend, too!
