"All You Need Is LOVE" Double Layout

This is my double layout in celebration of my nephews' wedding back in February.  One of my sister's favourite things to say/philosophies is "All You Need Is Love" so it was totally appropriate to use that for this layout.

 It really was a lovey dovey wedding and it was easy to see how much in love that the newly-weds are!

NZSU Blog - DSP Challenge

It just so happens that on one afternoon in the recent holidays, I decided to try and use up all the leftovers of one of my (extremely) retired Designer Series Papers.  It was one of the first I bought and was called East Coast Prep in 2008 when I first became a demonstrator.  I have made many scrapbook pages with it but whipped up a few cards gaining inspiration from Pinterest, SCS and demonstrator blogs.

JAI Scrap #7 Challenge - Hidden Journalling/Memorabilia

I've missed out on the last 2 challenges so have made an extra special effort to make sure I didn't miss out this time around!


The challenge this month was Just Add Hidden Journalling or Memorabilia.  It's quite fun to hide things on your layouts, make pockets for memorabilia etc.  This double layout is about me turning 40 recently (eek!) so I've used this challenge to hide a journalling tag attached to the butterfly.  I have written down some of my feelings about hitting this milestone.

This was also a great project to use up lots of retired DSP, Ribbon and Brads and was inspired by this elegant layout by Kay Kalthoff.
