The Story Starters for September are all about reading and books. One of my favourite hobbies! The story i chose to scrapbook was how i have to read every night before bed, even if it's just a paragraph.
First i picked that piece of patterned paper from Maggie Holmes' Open Book collection and then i picked out the rest of my supplies to go with the colour scheme. i find that a layout can come together much quicker if i start with one paper or embellishment and coordinate things to go with it.
In July i mentioned how i was really into stamping my own papers or 3x4 cards and here i am at it again. i just love the effect of repeating word stamps.
i didn't use a whole lot of product on this page, bit i still think it looks pretty effective. The timetable that you see in the pockets were all on a lanyard that i purchased on the day and could flick through to figure out what we wanted to do next. If you look at the picture on the layout close enough you'll see it around my neck. High Five to the organisers for making it 3x4 so i could fit them into pocket pages for preservation!
