Companion Scapbook Page

Here is the page that I've done as the opposite to my first one. I used the same colours but just altered the embellisments a touch.
This sketch is one that was given out at the Scrapbooking morning that I went to Tuesday week ago. So I had the huuuuuuge day on the Saturday at South's League Club then went again on the Tuesday for a morning and early afternoon session. The sketch is called Square It/Round It. The idea being to have the rounded corners, circles in the missing section but still be a square format.
I did find it a bit hard to cut my photos down to 4" square and the one that explains what these particular model houses are, I couldn't cut it down at all so I printed the information onto a journalling mat and made it 4 x 4. I think it's worked out well. The original lesson didn't mention matting the photos but I felt the Chocolate Chip brings out the colours better. Also in the missing corner the original lesson had 3 circles largish circles there but as I wanted to match the previous page, I used my flowers and another set of circle stamps I have by Hero Arts.
I kept to the metal elements by three brads on the ribbon and brads in the centres of the circles and flowers. The two pages together look quite ok so I'm a happy bunny.

On that Tuesday I booked my place for the Scrapbooking Retreat being held on the weekend 31st July. So Kerry, Therese, Dianne and I are off to that. Definitely looking forward to it, no cooking, no housework, just sociallising and crafting the whole weekend. Excellent!!!!
Thanks for looking and reading. Have a good day.
