A Happy challenge ...

I'm such a last minute Nellie !! Rushing now to get this layout up I have done for the Challenge #31 over on Challenge Me Happy where the theme was "Anything Goes" - that's my kind of theme :)
 I loved putting this page together using the very last bits and pieces from a Crate Paper range called Random and I am really happy the way it came out.
Can't wait to see what Challenge #32 has in store for us.

Going underground ...

Another month and another layout completed from my pile of Honeymoon photographs.  I am truly beginning to think this was one of my less than brilliant ideas and perhaps leaving them as slides might have been a better solution.  However the problem is once you start .... well you sort of are obliged to finish:)

So since I'm plodding through these I decided to use a visit to Monkton Farleigh in Wiltshire, England as my theme for Julene's inspiration challenge over on Arch--Scraps.

Monkton Farleigh was a fascinating tourist stop.  Certainly not somewhere we probably would have ventured by ourselves but due to local knowledge (we were staying with family) it was a great way to pass a few hours. Sadly it is no longer open to the public and has fallen prey to vandalism and decay.
I took inspiration from the corrugated tin and the rustic colours seen in the Mad Max 2 Museum and transferred this to my layout using corrugated cardboard, kraft cardstock and a rust glimmer mist sprayed across the base.
Keep em coming Julene - I'll get this album finished eventually!!
