Scrapbook Workshop - Return to the Collection - Part 2

Hello Everyone

Thanks for popping by. I hope you are well. I've been working on a little project that isn't going too well ... in fact, it's proving to be a bit of a headache ... so I've decided to take time out and do this post instead!

Following on from the Part 1 post showing the kit and first two layouts completed with the help of Shimelle's Return to the Collection workshop I'm back to show two more today. 
The backing for this layout is one of my favourite papers from Basic Grey's Fresh Cut Collection - I love the watercolour affect and the bright and cheerful combination of colours. The photo was taken on moving day last year when my two lovely grandsons lent a helping hand to load the van, hence the title. 

The background paper used on this layout was included in the kit as a bit of a wild card. It's been in my stash for a couple of years, has no maker's name on it, and that green is bright! However, I liked that it had the word 'memories' and thought it would be appropriate for this photo of the EM and I, taken by a kind stranger on the ferry to Capri. Many of the heart and butterfly embellishments were punched from snippets leftover from making the three previous layouts. 

I'm submitting this to Pixie's Snippets Playground because of all those snippet hearts and butterflies :) I'd like to say that the snippet mountain is going down but the reverse is true - I'll swear they are breeding instead! 

There's two double page layouts left to share but it will have to wait until I have figured out the best way to photograph them ... so far every photo taken has been awful!

Right, back to that headache little project!

Take care and stay safe.

Happy Crafting,
