My Month in Numbers

Hexagons are huge at the moment and I just love all the layouts appearing. It's funny how scrapbooking has come full circle. Nearly thirteen years ago when I started scrapbooking I turned my photos and papers into all sorts of shapes, hexagons being one of them. One of my first pages was based on hexagons shaped photos.....maybe one day (when i'm feeling brave!!) I'll share a photo of the page with you.

Instead today I share my March Month in Numbers layout....joining in with....
  over at
  The hexagons have been cut using my Creative Memories hexagon shape cutter....I wondered if I'd ever use it again!
 It's not to late to check out all the other numbers or if you would just like to know more pop across to Julie.

 We are down to the last few days of the Easter holidays and I have a poorly No 2 son, so all our plans have gone to pot. So far I've not managed to take the photos for my photography challenge, despite being away for a few days,  on the plus side the sun is shinning which always makes for a better day.

  7. Such a lovely page.

    But isn't it a bit scray to think everything comes around again ... because then how can I ever get rid of anything? ;-O

    I've pinned you on the board now: http://pinterest.com/notesonpaper/my-month-in-numbers/

    Thanks for sharing.

  8. Lovin the hexagons, I've just done a layout with hexagons too! Everything seems to come around again eventually if you wait long enough (although I'm hoping it won't be permed hair again!) Great misting on your page too.

  12. This is a gorgeous page, I love the muted colours, I find pages with gentle colours the hardest to do but this looks stunning. I especially like how you've misted a hexagon. Great way to record your month in numbers!
