Catch up!!

Here are a couple of scrapbook pages I have finished recently. I have not been very good at keeping up to date with the blog so here is a catch up!

This was our hotel in Tenerife
I took a photo of the hotel name and used it as an embellishment

I also took a photo of the floor number by the lift and this time I used it in the title

I dropped a peice of card onto my page before the ink was dry and it smudged :(

So I used a flower to cover it up !!!

Sorry this is out of focus!  It reads " I booked a room on a high floor thinking it would be nice to have a good view and it would be quieter but I didn't realise that the other two didn't do heights!!"

When we arrived at the hotel, after the taxi journey from hell (we all swear we time travelled!) the receptionist said 'You're on the  14th floor - nice view!) to which Karen and Elaine both went 'what?'
For the first few days neither of them would go to edge of the balcony they just skitted across the back like crabs!!
But by the time we left Karen was at the edge even if she wouldn't look down! LOL

And this one is another page in the Tenerife album. I did this for a weekly challenge on UKScrappers. The challenge was to use something we had printed (the ticket), something that was free ( the strips of paper were the cover sheet to a paper pack!) and 10 embellishments - for the 10th month. I have 6 brads, 3 buttons and a flower :D
The photo is the hotel taken from the pool bar looking up! I loved the way it seems to rise out of the palm trees and, of course, the lovely blue sky helped make it a nice picture :)


  1. Your pages are super - I love the colours you have used.

  2. Great layouts, I loved them when I saw them before. I think I like them more now as summer has passed. Great zingy colours :)
