Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome.

If you've arrived here from Beki's blog, for today's blog hop, a very warm welcome to you.

When Kirsty from Journal of Curious Things, first posted about joining in on her blog hop........it meant using one of her handmade embellishments on a layout to mark her 200th blog post.  Her work is fantastic so the embellishments had to be too - right.

Well she didn't disappoint they were gorgeous and fitted in perfectly with a holiday layout I had planned. I have tons of photos from the Eden Project and wanted to include a few odd photos that just won't get scrapped on their own.


 Keeping in with the holiday postal theme, pretty pretty stamps were added and Kirsty's embellishments were mounted onto black card so they'd stand out on the patterned papers.
 
The embellishments were beautifully created, they included a postage stamp card, paper clip, tag, lace and butterflies.

You may notice that the top right photo states The Eden Project, so it felt right not to include a title.

The journaling reads "Ten years ago the Eden Project opened, so I guess for ten year I've wanted to visit this place.We had a great day walking around the Biomes, you all made it to the top of the suspended platform where the temperature reached 43 degrees"

Thank you for stopping by and if you're following the blog hop you're next stop is the very talented, young and crafty Hannah.

A big thanks to Kirsty for organising the hop and wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

  1. Love the use of the two embellishments on the one layout and backing them on black is a really clever idea! Becky x

  6. That's a beautiful layout Louise! Putting the embellishments on the black card is a clever idea - that way they don't get lost and your layout shines at the same time. Love that!

    Have a great weekend

  12. Love the way you've fitted in so much! Echoing the pinked edges of the embellishment in your patterned paper and the stamp-like edges of some of the other squares is just genius.
