SJ Crafts April Challenge

This fantastic October Afternoon World Map paper has been in my stash for quite some time. I Think I was a little afraid to use it it's so nice.

A while back Miss Smith created this amazing layout using the exact.....ish same paper.

I was still a little unsure how to use this paper when SJ Crafts April Challenge theme was announced as "Favorite". Instantly this world paper and these photos sprung to mind. These photos are my favorites from when the boys were younger. I love the three of them together and cheeky Stan in the middle with his chunky hands wrapped around his brothers necks. Jack seemed to be oblivious to it all (not much has changed there!) and is busy counting on his fingers where Harry look on and seems rather amused. 

 Supplies used
Jenni Bowlin Memo stickers
Jenni Bowlin Vintage journaling tag
scraps of paper from MME Lost and Found ranges
three tags for jounaling a message to each one of them

If you have something favourite you wish to scrap whether it be a topic or a photo or too use a favourite sheet of patterned paper why not pop across and enter SJ Crafts Challenge.

I'll be back tomorrow (hopefully) to show you a project I've been working on. Can I say thank you for your comments on my previous rugby post. I'm still smiling from ear to ear and I think I've mentioned it to everyone who'll listen lol.

    Working with patterned paper for the main background of a layout can be really difficult sometimes, but I love this map paper, and you have managed to balance it so perfectly, it's Stunning!!
