Scrapbooking Layout - Too Busy to Notice

Hello Bloggers

Well, I had a whole heap of plans for what I was going to achieve today but so far I have only managed one!  Best laid plans.... springs to mind.  However, what I have achieved I am very happy with and I will share with you tomorrow.  But for now I thought I would share a layout from PB days!  No.  Not Penny Black but Pre-Blogging days.  They seem such a long time ago but in reality they aren't that long!

These photos were taken when I went on a retreat in Cornwall with Linda at Just Scrapbooking.  I arrived the afternoon before the retreat was due to start as it was a 5 hour drive and I didn't want to be worried about getting there on time and I also wanted some rest before I started.  So after Dinner I went for a wander in the gardens and sure enough a photo opportunity presented itself!

Hope you like.....

Funny enough this was before we had our bees!  Thanks to my little notebook I can tell you I completed this layout on 20th July 2010.

Back to work tomorrow and scary thought.....this is the last Bank Holiday until December 25th!  

Have a great week everyone!

Hugs

I love how you've layered the photos at the top. It makes for a very striking scene. The pinks look great against the darker base. You could enter this into our 'flowers' scrapbooking challenge, you know! :)

Isn't it strange to think of all the things we created before blogging existed. I know I have books of LO's and I also know I did a lot more scrapbooking then before I was inspired and distracted by all the gorgeous things everyone creates in blogland!!
The flowers you found certainly made a beautiful page.
Thanks for that cheerful note about the Bank Holidays, maybe the weather will be better at Christmas than it is now!!!

That is a really pretty LO - love the bee on the flower pic!! The dark background works ever so well too, very clever :D

Your layout is beautiful, love the dark against the light, it works so well and bring the eye to the focal point so easily. Thank you for visiting me earlier too. Crafty hugs, Anne x
