After a fair while not doing anything vaguely crafty I have done a layout! When Holly left school we made a little mini book for her best friend full of photos from each year they have known each other :) Stupidly I forgot to take photos ,but rummaging through all my stuff made me want to actually sit down and use some of it!Having bought the new Echo Park collection,I thought I;d better try and use some of the This & that range that I bought a while back and hadn't yet touched.

I even added lots of writing,as I am trying to move away from the 'pretty picture,no details ' type layouts I have so many of!I'm still looking at it thinking it needs 'more' on it,but I just don't know what to add so we'll stick with the less is more attitude!The photo is one I took the day after Holly had finished school.Papers are all from the Echo Park This & That Girl range and the title is a mix of Thickers :) Hopefully I will get round to catching up on my 2012 album soon and scrapping some holiday photos :)

Pretty layout love the bunting. Ive got loads of layouts that are just 'pretty' but I'm making an effort to tell a story with them now. Not always easy when you're not that keen on your handwriting!

Have a good weekend.

Hi Sue thanks for letting me know about the sunflowers at Hitchin Lavendar. At this stage I'm not sure whether I'll be able to make it as I have a fairly busy schedule most days, which is a shame. I hope you get some good photos I'll look forward to seeing them on your blog :)

Have you been to the Harry Potter studios at Watford? I would love to go there and just wondered if you had been and whether it was worth a visit.

Thanks again
