Paper Scrapping...

Yay - been doing some paper scrapping this morning! I have so missed that this week as I have been concentrating on my storage problem/solutions and also I have been making some birthday cards (got quite a few that need to be sent in the next month).

Anyway, back to my paper scrapping. I picked up this kit which I got from Shimelle a while back. I decided to follow the instructions and ...well, it was rather interesting as you created the layout BEFORE you added your photos/title/journaling.

Following the instructions, I got to this part yesterday evening:

And then today I sat down thinking about what photos to use, what title to use etc. I normally always start by picking my papers, then my photos and then I scrap. So to do the whole layout FIRST and THEN pick my photos - that was a new experience. But I have to say a really good one, that I enjoyed a lot :)

Oh a totally different note: I have now sent off my e-mail to stop my Scrap-Room subscription. I've had the kits for about 2 1/2 years and enjoyed them a lot, so it was not a decision I wanted to make but SO many of us here in the UK got big customs charges this month :(
