after spending all morning through my teaching notes ready to start again next week. Still got year 2 to do and year 3 syllabus to concoct but at least the beginners class is done-well nearly anyway. I thought I'd give myself a break from all that paper by posting the layout I did last night for the September Merly challenge which, this time, requires using photos that are NOT 6"x4". I've used one I took of Steven at the weekend when we dropped him off at to start his final year at uni. Where have the other 2 years gone? Scary.

I pinched the journaling card idea from Janna I think and used some of the papers that were left over from when we had our retreat with Emilie a few months ago. I loved the blue hue of the photo.


  1. Gorgeous - I love all the stencilling. Great photo of Steven.

  2. Brilliant layout, love all the red splashes. A very funky style. x

  3. I love the wonderful colour combination and your relaxed and effective use of inks. I'm so envious of all your layouts :)

  4. Hi Karen,

    Lovely layout, great stenciling!
