Playing Catch Up

We've been enjoying half term this week. With the weather being so mild, it gave us a chance to get out and about for a few days. We picked pumpkins and carved them. I also broke my camera's lens :( So I'm relying on my 50mm. It's a great lens but you have to be that much more prepared to get the right shot. Still practise makes perfect.

A quick share of a scraplift that I have done. I'm not one for scraplifting normally, but when I saw a layout that my friend Julie Taylor created that I had to do one too. I can't remember exactly how Julie did hers, but I know it had labels and a great long title. So here goes...
We had gone to a National Trust property.  DS who doesn't like having his photo taken started goofing around.  The light was really great so I snapped away.

I had to come up with a very long title.  It is a great way of using all those letters up.

I used my Dymo to punch the small words from cardstock.  I just sanded them down to reveal the white core.

A few stamped images, punches and stickers adorn the photos.  What fun!

Thanks Julie for such great inspiration.  All you need is a blog now so we can share all the wonderful layouts that you do!

Enjoy your weekend.


  1. Awesome page! Love all the details! :)

  2. Wow....what a beautful page! I totally love the long title on the right.

  3. Gorgeous layout! I love the idea of coming up with a long title to use all those old letters up! I keep thinking if I ever have children I am going to name them something like "XYZQK" as those are always the letters I have left :)
