A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books


Animal Kingdom & Grinning ghosts

More Disney layouts to share and this one is from the Kilimanjaro Safari. We took literally hundreds of photos during the many times that we went on, so again there are lots of layouts. As well as a general Safari layout, I’m doing ones of specific animals that we saw.

I used Basic Grey, which is taking a real hammering at the moment, plus there’s a sheet of some very old paper as the background. I must have had it for at least ten years!

This layout needed to be a double. I had too many lion photos that I loved, and one of them needed to be BIG. Assorted older papers used and I heat embossed some chipboard for the title. 
This one is one of the Photopass photos, where they put a border on. I used more old papers & some cardstock laceThis one is from Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. We have loads of photos from that night so there are more layouts to come, but I loved this photo so much that I printed it huge and it’ll be the section divider for MNSSHP.

I’ve been waiting a long time to use that embossed Mickey paper!

The album is starting to look quite full now. I’ve had to buy a second one.



Dinosaurs, Spaceship Earth and Halloween

More scrapbooked photos from our 2017 trip to Florida.

There are dinosaurs scattered about in Dinoland and it’s a tradition for us to pose with them. Lots of lovely BG Archaic. It’s perfect for Dinoland photos. Next is one of my favourite layouts so far, and a rare double. More old paper being used up! Finally two MNSSHP layouts.  I did the first one as a single but decided to do the second one with the same papers so it could go on the facing page. Despite the colours looking completely different, they do match. I take the photos on a desk by the window to get natural light, but it had started snowing by the time I took the second one so the light was different.
