Something OLD! "Sunshine Today" Layout

So here is something OLD for you!  Well not THAT old - a year ago! 
 And not yet blogged!!  I made it for a Scrap 365 Magazine Gallery
 & it ended up not fitting the criteria so it never got sent.  

I kept it back, meaning to offer it up to Scrapbooking Memories for possible
publication but this year has been so busy for me that here we are in June
 & that hasn't happened yet!  So for now it is blog fodder :)

Just a fun & quick mixed media layout about a trip to our local waterpark,
which is one of the attractions here in Durban, & lots of fun in Summer!

I can't see me ever journaling on a sticker again but there you go,
times change!  I still love those resin confetti dots & don't have
many of them left...

Lots of the product came from the Dear Lizzy Collections for American Crafts.
These days Prima are the only US manufacturer I buy from because apart from
my Design Team work I have seen that I don't have time to use any more product.

The painting is of course using bubble-wrap & is always a fun way
 of adding some texture, or at least the look of some.

I think using credit card sized photos is definitely a good way to get
 "events" photos scrapped without having to go down the double-page 
route or end up with no white space or other elements.

Right now our weather is the complete opposite of the photos!

It is very cold & seriously windy.  Our house could definitely
do with some better insulation but for most of the year we
are trying our best to get the heat OUT!!

and just wanted to say that your last LO for 2crafty was amazing!

Good luck with your big event!

I love when you find a page that has been 'not blogged', a little something that's been stashed away, but then finally sees the light of day and can be shared. This is definitely warm and sunny and a 'feel good page'. Love it. xx

Hi Helen, sorry I am not much on bloggland from my laptop so don't leave comments very often, but I do follow your awesome work regularly. Love how you put so many photos and mixed media elements and the page is still well balanced.

Your photos reminded me of my holiday in Fuerteventura 2 years ago, sadly I am not going to a warmer climate this summer :(
