Once upon a time... it rained and rained and rained

and rained. So much so we abandoned our trip to the safari park this weekend. Fingers crossed for some better weather next weekend as I was really looking forward to meeting the meerkats - simples. All was not lost though, I completed another page for my honeymoon mini book and the front cover too!

Ever since taking part in Shimelle's Something from Almost Nothing class I have adopted a more is more approach to my scrapping (as opposed to my usual 'I couldnt possibly use more than one 'good' embellishment on one page!' approach). I am really enjoying the results and seeing my supply pile shrink while my albums expand full of gorgeous supplies is really quite rewarding.

With this in mind I went to town with the front cover for my honeymoon album. Supplies include; DCWV Once Upon a Time, Prima Marketing blooms (3 of them, count them not 1, not 2 but 3!), Maya Road chipboard Mr & Mrs, gems, ribbon and a sparkly heart ribbon slider.

For this page I had intended to include lots of sayings from the Haunted Mansion ride in the Magic Kingdom but the page just didn't work out that way but I have lots of ideas for other Haunted Mansion pages including; Your ghost host, 999 Happy Haunts, Grinning Ghosts, hurry back ... don't forget to bring your death certificate!, We're dying to meet you! thanks to the girls on UKScrappers.

Supplies for Foolish Mortals (thanks to Sarah for the title) include DCWV, Prima Marketing, and Adornit. I've inked the edges of the papers, alphas and the flower to age it a little. Look out for hidden Mickey's too.

Thanks for stopping by. Kxx

Once upon a time

I bought three DCWV Once Upon a Time stacks in 2007 (the mat stack, the 8x8 and the 12x12) and until a couple of weeks ago all three stacks had remained unused in the paper mountain that I call my craft room. I couldn't let these gorgeous papers go unseen any longer so I decided to set them free. As they are so pretty I didn't want to hide them away behind a page protector so I opted for a 8x8 chipboard album by 7 Gypsies. Now each page can be stroked and oggled :)

This is what I have done so far...

This week has seen the start of Shimelle's new class Love your Pictures, Love your Pages. We are already on prompt 2 and I haven't even started. I have lots of ideas but haven't had a chance to take a photos yet. Maybe tomorrow... I'll wanna settle down, until tomorrow I'll just keep moving on - you gotta love that little Hobo ;p Thanks for stopping by. Kx
