Project life - my album (part five)




I'm really pleased with how these pages about our Norfolk trip this year came out. Maybe it's because the trip was pretty fresh in my memory, or because I was working with photos I'd selected for the purpose, but I feel the colours and styles really work well. The cards are a mix of Heidi Swapp September Skies and Favourite Things, with a few Becky Higgins Sweet speciality themed cards thrown in for good measure. 

This picture and quote is taken from a tourist brochure I picked up while we were there. I cut it down to fit over the three pockets. 


As part of the journalling, I wrote about our trip to see the seals at Blakeney Point. They were really cheeky - popping up all around the boats to say hi, so this Fine & Dandy sticker was the perfect embellishment. Luke laughed his socks off when he saw this, he loved it. 


It was my birthday shortly before we went away and Luke got me a bottle of Nyetimber, the award-winning English sparkling wine. We drank it while we were there. Funnily enough, we had loads of things go wrong on this holiday - the tent leaked, it rained quite a lot, Luke fell off his bike and hurt his hand, but I still absolutely loved it and wish we could go back right now. 




Once again I printed out too many photos, plus I had lots of little bits that I'd picked up on our travels, so I bound them all together to a piece of thick card fronted with this Becky Higgins card. I really like the rustic effect of the twine.
