Layout questions and instructions

I have had a couple of questions on where I get my ideas from and I can honestly say that they come from many places.  

If I see an idea that I like or that I can incorporate into a layout, I note it down in my trusty little journal (only recently started).  It can be as small as a title or as big as an album idea that I change to a mini album for a layout. 

I have found that the journal comes in handy for ideas on scrap days at Michelle's or getting Kits ready for Scrap camp, where I will need up to 12 layouts to work on for the weekend. 


It doesn't seem to take long to fill, so I am planning on have several journals over the next year.  I often attach templates for fold outs or card ideas.  Above left  is a layout that I am working on now and above is the one that I used for 'Kiwa at 4'.   

I had not completed instructions on any of my layout but I have been asked, so I will work on them over the next couple of weeks and place then on the blog for others to use.   

Care take ever.  J

What a great day in Palmerston North,  the sun was shining and very little hint that Winter is on it's way.  We are enjoying it while we can.
