BIG Title

I don't know about you but I don't do a lot of journalling so a big title works well for me and hopefully tells the story without too much added effort of extra journalling.
The Counterfeit Kit Blog has a new challenge up today which is therefore quite perfect for me!

Challenge #3: Big Titles!  
Use a BIG TITLE (or sentiment) on your project

I love this photo of my husband.
If you're a follower of my blog, you will know that he always plays the fool when the camera is out
so I never usually get a nice photo of him.
This one was captured in February as we were out walking trying to get a 3G signal so I could upload a layout to the LOAD gallery.
I love the backgroud paper as it needed no work whatsoever.
I coloured my wooden circle as the plain look just didn't do it for me.
All the layers can't really be seen in the photo but there are plenty.
Vellum seems to be back in fashion and I am loving that I have loads in my kit tio use this month.
My fellow Master Forger Jemma had some great ideas in her post HERE.
I've used a few buttons, a bit of twine and gems to highlight my homemade flair.
 Will you have a go at challenge#3 this month?
Maybe you could join in with our blog hop on the 24th?
Just email
 by the 18th to let us know that you want to take part and don't forget you can join in with any one of our challenges from this month. 


  1. ooo, love this! Really love it! The giant title is fab, says it all! Great photo and I know what you mean about trouble getting a good photo. I hope you will use it again and again :-) Of course, I love the vellum and the layers and the loopy twine does it for me!

  2. Love the loopy twine cluster and the layers - great title too, you soppy thing!

  3. Aww!! What a great layout!!! I especially LOVE the title!!! SO sweet!!!

  4. Oh thatd gorgeous I love the title fab idea of alternative journaling

  5. Love all the little details, jenx

  6. Love the title... Right up my street! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Homemade flair? Tell me more!
    Really love how this is very masculine yet there's a romantic vibe.
    What a FAB photo :~)

  8. Super cute layout, I love all the little details you added to the layout :)

  9. Really grat page - romantic yet manly! Love your title, says it al! :o)

  10. Fab LO, it's not easy to do a "Man" scrap page so extra kudos for that! Love the embellie cluster with the twine & buttons and the title is all the journaling that the page needs.

  11. This is such a fabulous layout - and I love the idea of using a large title instead of journalling. I seem to be able to write and write in a mini-book, but on a layout? *shudder*


Thank you so much for leaving me some love!
