october pages

It's exactly one month since I last blogged! Oh dear. I wish I was doing Shimelle's blog class. It's also been about a month since I last scrapped. But today I have had a most blissful day off. And done lots of scrapping. Bit of a slow pace but I've managed 5 pages...

This page was completed while sitting in the back of an RV driving through the winding roads of the Canadian mountains. I was trying to take the opportunity to scrap to pass the time of travelling but it didn't really work, everything was sliding around. Still I managed to get it finished in the end. It's backed on corrugated card not cardstock to give it a really earthy autumny feel. This has to be one of my favourite afternoons of the year, a lovely walk in Oxford with my 2 sisters.

The wedding of some friends in Poole, the service was amazing, the band did such a great job and I really enjoyed catching up with some very special people.

Before we left for our holiday we wanted to spend some time with Adam's side of the family. We had a lovely lovely day in Winchester. A really hot day for October too. We walked along the river which was sooo pretty and had lunch in pizza express. Then we walked around the National Trust Mill which was also really nice. We missed Grandad but we must do it again it was a great place to meet up.

I don't usually use patterned paper for an entire page but thought I'd give it a go. It's a sweet design from american crafts. I'd seen a wonky photo frame used on the twopeas site so I thought I'd try something similar.

This is my most treasured photo from the American part of our holiday. A quick hug with all my sibs. Think I should have moved the thickers down a bit though so now that's annoying me!
Loving yellow at the mo.

I've not done such a simple LO for such a long time. But their wedding was so classy and not at all busy in terms of decorations etc so I wanted to try and reflect that a little. The rub ons finish it off nicely i think.

That's it for now. More scrapping once I've got the Canada photos printed! Yipee.
