Here is my layout and as you can see I stuck quite close to the original sketch ( sometimes it just works out that way). The photo is of my DH making me a mowing strip out of some paving blocks and the journaling says " where would we be without Gary's ability to fix, make and redesign almost anything he puts his mind to".
and a little close up of the details, the border punch was borrowed from my friend Helen when I was over hers last week so I'm not sure what it's called but it is one I haven't got so I made the most of being there and used it for this page.
The papers I used were 2 sheets of this Scenic Route Designer Scrap Strips and the brads are Basic Grey.
I really love using these scrap strips papers and I acquired quite a few different ones from the Scrap Shed earlier this year. It means you have lots of different papers in little pieces to play with and the back is a full page of a co-ordinating pattern. I think other paper companies do them aswell so I might search out some others when I finished these ones although I may have 3 or4 more to scrap yet!
