Hello :) I know it's been a while, but I got a little inspired today to write a spot of poetry. Okay, nothing so new there, it's what often happens when I put pen to paper! It's written for my week 34 Scrapbook Diary page, which also shares two photos from the garden. It all got quite arty this week!

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, Natasha :)

P.S. My layout was created with the following wonderful kit: Euphrosyne by Julie Mead & Foxeysquirrel.

Poem - The City

Hi, I've been doing a little more poetry :) This time inspired by "The City". I created the poem to go with the photo in the layout taken by Steve when we visited East Coast USA a few years back. The photo is Manhattan taken from the Brooklyn Bridge. I got a little arty on this layout using a number of lovely digital scrapbooking kits by Julie Mead Designs.

The City

The City resplendent
An Architects dream
Dazzling its specators
A sight to be seen
Never tiring never sleeping
Futures here are cast
The City - a place
Transcendent to the last

A Spot of Journaling

Hello! I've been doing a little journaling on some travel scrapbook pages over the last week or so.

I've been trying out some different styles, which can be seen in the four accompanying layouts:
  • Observations
  • A short paragraph of descriptive words
  • General thoughts with some fact and an insight into the place
  • My daydreams!
I've loved having a play with these different styles and catching up with scrapping some of my travels :)

Paris - Notre Dame
Paris Statue
My Paris layouts were created with the gorgeous collection, Letter from Paris by DitaB Designs.

Explore Bosham
Discover Bosham
And finally this layout contains some of my own personal travel journaling tips :)

Travel Journaling
I used the amazing bundle Discover by Lynne Anzelc Designs. These layouts I created for a post for Lynne's blog and can be found in full at: Discover Journaling.

All photos my own. The Bosham photos were all processed using Poster Edges in Photoshop Elements.

I'll be here again soon with my next post, bye for now, Natasha :)

Hello, as you will see from my last post I have been scrapping my trip to California in 2009. Continuing on with that theme I scrapped a couple photos from Bodie using the brilliant kit Potential in Black by Julie Mead Designs. As soon as I saw the kit I knew it would work perfectly with this old mining town "frozen in time".

I used the same kit for this weeks Scrapbook Diary page. If you'd like to take a look hop over to the E-scape and Scrap blog: Scrapbook Diary 2015 Week 5. Bye for now, Natasha :)

An Amazing Adventure

Hi, it's been a while since I posted and today I have a travel page that I created for a challenge at Daisytrail. 

The challenge was to create one 12x12 inch layout to include at least one photo of your favourite holiday. Choosing just one place is very hard! But at the moment of deciding I chose my trip to California in 2009. 

California was an amazing holiday and I still love looking at the photos and remembering the trip. I also love holidays where I meet up with friends, and this trip we (Steve, my partner, and me) were invited by our friend Suzanne to join her on her vacation. I wouldn't like to say how many photos we took between the three of us, but I know it was a lot!

I'd love to visit again, maybe one day :) Hopefully I will be back sooner with my next post, Natasha
