Hello friends! This weekend we really had spring weather and spent hours outdoors each day. On Sunday, Leo and I walked in one of our favourite forests. He loves being outdoors and goes and gets his shoes and overall when he sees that someone is planning to go out.
I was in the mood for a scrapbooking layout this week and found these photos from a hike in the Drakensberg in South Africa, from some years back. I like all the shades of green on these photos and the fact that I am standing on the path with my camera in my hand on the top one. The papers are from the lovely Nature Sketchbook release by Graphic 45.
I love this paper from the 8 x 8 in pad, with its organic shapes. All the edges of the papers were distressed and I stitched them to the background with my sewing machine.
The layout was inspired by this lovely quote, which is a shortened version of a quote which I always liked. I looked for the origins of the quote and it is often said to be by Nathaniel Hawthorne, but that might not be the case.
The papers have lovely vintage floral and butterfly prints. I cut out butterflies from the papers too. The title was die cut with the Block Talk Lowercase die.
And another lovely quote. I really like quotes, as you might already know, and these fit so well together with my photos.
The photos are placed on a folded piece of black cardstock, because I wanted space for journaling and for an extra photo. It opens up and I wrote the journaling with a white pen and also added some more vintage images from Nature Sketchbook.
