Scrapbook Workshop - Return to the Collection - Part 3

Morning Everyone

I'm sitting in my craft room and the sun is shining - what more could a body ask for! In fact, it's so nice I'm planning to potter in the potting shed once I've completed this post ... it's a day too good to miss :)

This is a follow up on series of posts, Part 1 & 2, showing the kit and layouts completed with the help of Shimelle's Return to the Collection workshop. Today, I'm sharing the first of two double-page layouts created with materials from the kit ... that's the pages I've been having trouble photographing!
This one is a combination of a traditional one page layout with two 6"x4" size photos and a Project Life style layout with one 6"x4" and five 3"x4" photos - though two are in fact a 6"x4" split in half. 
The full title reads 'Family Day Out At A Model Train Show In Lyle Kirk Greenock' ... the smaller letters are very clear in real life but they don't show up well in these photos. The clusters top and bottom were made with tiny strips of leftover patterned paper and punched shapes, circles and hearts, layered up to give some dimension.
I don't do Project Life - two time consuming and my day-to-day life really isn't so interesting that I'd want to record it in all it's boring detail - but using the folder this way enabled me to include lots more of the photos taken, showing the beautiful features found inside the church, than I would on a traditional two-page layout. All the journaling cards were cut from the paper scraps left in the kit and embellished as for page one.

I'm submitting this to Pixie's Snippets Playground - lots of snippets and scraps were used, yeah!, but more specifically because of those gorgeous red/pink polka dot hearts - punched from a snippet left from a sticker I'd cut into for another layout. 

There's one more double page layout to share but I'll spare you that today ... otherwise this post would take on mammoth proportions and we all have 'places to go, people to see, and things to do' ... I've no idea where this quote comes from but it's one I use a lot to gee myself on to get things done :)

Have a wonderful day - hope the sun is shining where you are too.

Happy Crafting

Great layouts. I don't do PL either as you say too time consuming but I do make the odd page this way and incorporate them in my scrapbook.

Your pages look great. This is such a good way to incorporate more photos as you way.
Great design, Elizabeth.
