Love - Layout - Rome 2011 - Trevi Fountain

Hello Peeps

I thought I would show you another layout I have completed this month.  It was a kit which I purchased from Scrapbus - the Crop which runs once a month in Newport, South Wales.  I have unfortunately missed a few lately due to life getting in the way, but I have decided that this year I will make an effort to scrapbook much more than I did in the last four months of last year.
The papers are by one of my favourite companies. My Minds Eye, hence why I bought the kit.  I have made a few small changes to the layout such as adding red embossing powder to the bunting at the top of the photo as alot of the glitter had come off.

I also added a journalling spot behind the piece on the left.  I do find that alot of scrapbooking kits and layouts do not allow for journalling which to my mind is a little daft as there is nowhere for you to tell the story.  I also jiggled it so that the bird on the left showed too!
The eagle eyed amongst you may remember that I have scrapbooked this photograph before.  When I set out to scrapbook on this occasion, I had a different photograph which I was going to scrap (me in fact at the Coliseum) but when I saw this kit in the box where I keep my favourite papers I just had to do the layout and change the photograph.  Never mind ey!  It is one of my favourite recent photos of my Hubby so why can't I scrapbook it twice.  At least the two layouts are different colours and the photos are different sizes!!

If you live anywhere near Newport, why not pop along to Scrapbus.  I have linked their site HERE and you can get access to their blog from there, as well as other kits available for sale.

How did I miss the shoe shops? Oh Yes! Someone was trying to rip us off by taking our photo while we were taking pics of each other and then trying to sell them to us and we just walked away to get rid of him! Rude man! Stopped me seeing shoes and having small feet I was looking forward to seeing some nice shoe shops!
