Layout: What do you do?


This is the layout I completed last night. I love these photos taken on our holiday to the sunshine coast in september 2006. My son picked an ice-cream flavour called strawberry shortcake... but then as sometimes happens.... he didn't like it... so his solution was simple... share with his sister. Luckily she didn't mind!
I thought I'd try a technique for hidden journalling that allows you to open the journalling box despite the rest of the layout being inside your page protector.
Here I've used the smallest photo as the 'book cover' for my journalling. This section is raised off the layout via magnets that allow this photo to be on the outside of the page protector. This is a really cheap layout with the magnet costing $2 for a set of 6 (pairs), my chipboard letters (share) and arrow are off the back of old notebooks and the "bling" comes in a packet of 50 pieces for $2 and the larger blue bling flower is off my daughters/ hairclip... so all that's left is a piece of cardstock, two pattern papers, one plain paper, doodling pens, adhesive and ink for the edges.... total cost: $3.50.
