The Memory Nest Heart Challenge

my first layout for my new holiday album. managed to get a few photos printed before my ink ran out!!. now I've got to wait for the postman to deliver my ink and holiday snaps. I had a wonderful time down south despite the weather being completely random. my first layout is for The Memory Nest heart challenge which I'm just about in time for.

 The theme for this challenge is water, so I chose a snap I took of the tall ship Tenacious docking into Poole Quay. I used my Papermania  Ahoy There papers that I have been saving just for my holiday album. I used Tim Holtz peacock distress ink around the edges of my layers.

 The twist on this challenge was to use a interactive element so I hid my journaling in a pocket behind the page.

The Memory Nest final summer challenge

here we are the last summer challenge and the official end of British summer although the clocks don't go back till the end of October. The leaves have started to turn orange and yellow already and the air has become fresh with a slight chill. I start my end of summer holiday soon, I'm usually lucky and the temperatures aren't too cold in September.  I've chosen a festive layout for this project as i need to get my Christmas photos on to layouts before I add any more to the already large pile of photos.

I used Daisy Ds Nativity 12x12 paper as the back ground with Papermania Capsule Collection cranberry and Apple.
