Happy Monday everyone! How has your Easter Holiday been? Mine was filled with Holiday Club and with some great days out – perfect mixture! Today for the most of us it is back to work (yes, for me too!) and to be honest, I’m OK with it! A lot of pressure fell off me last week, when I received my certificate for my TA course; this now means I am officially qualified as a TA level 3! Hooray for me!
This also means (and that’s when the important part for you, my blog readers, comes in) that I have more time spending with pretty paper and more time to tell my story. So, when I woke up this morning, I thought it was about time to post a layout I made roughly about three weeks ago.
I flicked through my photos and decided to use those two of Katja I took at Lulworth Cove in the afternoon sun. As I had not bought any new papers for a while I had to rely on the “old” collections I still had. The Pier by Crate Paper seemed to fit right in with the warm colours and the touch of gold.
I kept it quite simple with the bigger piece of patterned paper in the back and stayed within this colour scheme of blues, greens, cream and a bit of craft behind the photos. I used some of the journaling cards which came with this collection; the swirl was one of them, but I die-cut it as a circle to fit the circular cove we were visiting that day. The Pier also offered some great phrases to cut out and I made use of this on my page. Golden and blue spatters of ink finished off my design.
As you might have already guessed, I like the colour blue (and its variations) and the combination with neutrals is working really well on here, right? Do you have a favourite colour? Are you using it on your projects more than others? Leave me a comment and tell me about it – I’m intrigued!
That is it for today – but there is more to come and I have BIG plans for this blog, so stay tuned!
Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon in my little spot of the blogger’s world!
