Happy Ever After.

Good morning.

If you're looking for the 'Songs of Christmas' Blog Hop then you're at the right place.........just need to scroll down a little or click here.

If you're just browsing then stay a while, I have a layout to post today.

First though, please excuse any bad grammar, spelling mistakes or general babble today, as the delightful stomach bug that's making it's way through our local school, decided to pay a visit to our house this last week........via my eldest.  She has now generously shared with my youngest so we all now how this pans out now don't we?!

I could be posting on borrowed time here, although fingers crossed, no symptoms yet, just a little ragged around the edges having spent the night on a camp bed next to my daughter.........mopping brow, rubbing tummy etc.etc.

However, on to brighter happier things like paper, glue and embellies to guide me to my 'happy place'!

Today's page was my first creation from a Two Scrapbook Friends DT Kit of a while ago, using one of Echo Parks Photo Freedom collections by Jenni Bowlin.

I was immediately drawn to this because.....well.....there's black in there I guess!  Can't help it, anything with black in the colour scheme is usually a winner for me.

I also thought it would work beautifully with the vintage/retro photograph my In-Laws passed over during their last visit........their Wedding Day photo of 45 years ago.

No pressure or anything!!

Happy Ever After.


I fussy cut a few pieces from various sheets of PP, and layered here and there.

I do love this retro camera (Maya Road I think).....perfect for this page together with a couple of wooden hearts.


I used various stickers from the co-ordinating sticker sheet for the title, and how cool are these mini coat hangers?


So cute, I love em.

Finally, a couple of die cute feather shaped thingies, and of course the Dymo had to make an appearance.



Did you know Dymo Industries dates back to 1958, and by the late 60's had become a household name for labelling every single thing in your house that did not move or breathe (although I may have tried it with my brother once or twice!)?

There ends the lesson for today!

I'll be back on Wednesday for some Little Red Wagon goodness, and then Friday with Part 2 of this collection.......germs permitting!

Have a great day,
Jayne.x.

Well Jayne I think you can pat yourself on the back, this page is gorgeous! Love the colour scheme for your in-laws photo, and a touch of retro gives it a timeless look. I'm sure they will love it too. xx
