The Extra Ones

Here are the extra ones I did over the weekend ...

This double page layout came about because I had so many pictures showing different quirky bits of Route 66 that it would've taken me a lifetime to scrap them all individually. I used Photoscape to create the photos then cut a few up to fit. I have used different methods to hightlight some of the photos as shown below.

I think this could be my favourite because I've made my own 12x12 by printing one of my own photos onto the paper. This page is so simple but I love the way it turned out.

This photo of my daughter was printed quite large so I didn't want too much on the page. I got told off when I got home because she said "Mum, it wasn't a treasure hunt" - oh well!

The next LO was for the first challenge of the weekend. The photos I had were taken in France and the colours matched perfectly.

"13 already?" is a simple LO (I like simple) but still tells the story.

I love the way this one turned out AND the fabulous prize I won for it too. I layered cropped photos of my daughter and created the cluster at the bottom to follow the sketch. I don't think I'll ever quite understand "sketches" though!

Thank you Rachel for the photography advice, I now also have a whiteboard for the garden!!!!


  1. These are gorgeous pages Lesley. I can't see a couple of them though. You certainly scrapped more than me over the week-end !!

    1. Thanks Gwyneth, is it whole pictures you can't see or just bits of - I can see them all?
