Scrap Weekly in 2010: Week 4

This week's challenge from Ruth at Scrap Weekly in 2010 is to use tags on a layout, preferably in a different way to normal. I've thought about the 'different' part all week and only came up with one idea which was to turn 6 or 8 tags into a flower. However, I tried that today and didn't like how it turned out, so I admitted defeat and made a standard two-page layout - with vellum tags a part thereof.
I so liked my photos of a walk around The Lanes this week, especially the one with old sewing machines, that I wanted to make a layout featuring them. I changed the photos to black and white and knew I needed a two-page layout to include as many as possible. But I changed my mind - again - and printed the ones of choccywoccydoodah in colour, creating a layout in two halves: one black and white and plain, one red and white and bling!

The Lanes, Brighton

There is journaling on a tag under one of the photos which reads:
'Amongst the deserted cafes and months-long Sales of the deepest Recession since the 1930's, can be found a quirky, colourful, extravagant shop with stunning chocolate sculptures; Choccywoccydoodah.'
It took me a very long time to put this layout together today as I haven't done a two-page layout in ages and found it challenging. But enjoyable just the same!


  1. One of these days I'm going to get to Brighton and see the shops for myself! Really fun layout, Ann.

  2. I really like the look of this DLO. Thanks for having a go at my Scrap Weekly 2010 challenge.
