White With One

Hello again!

Told you I'd be back today with a layout. I've been a bit slack with the scrapbooking lately. I think I came back from holiday, saw how many photos I'd taken and just had no idea where to start.

So to get me back into a scrappy mood I decided to have a go at White with one -  for May, the colour combo is black and white: and the challenge is to use flags and badges:

Talk about trying to make it difficult for myself. I had no flags and only a few badges, most of which didn't fit the picture. Luckily a friend sent me a pad of gorgeous black and white papers recently so I resorted to making my own. I faded the background of the photo to black and white so that the colours of our clothes stood out, otherwise I thought it would all look a bit drab!

I have to say I struggled and I'm finding it increasingly hard to switch from making cards to doing a layout. Maybe I need to do a class...or go on a shopping spree...sounds like a plan....

Thanks for popping by,

Claire x


  1. It may not have been easy, but this is fabulous and looks to me that it was worth a lot of effort! I love how you've spritzed and your banners and flags. Much nicer than bought ones!

  2. Hi Claire Love your page and I love the way you have journalled on the page.
