Going, going, gone

We didn't get the second burst of snow that was predicted for today so we have the cold but not the fun. I can't complain though as I am off skiing in a couple of months time so hopefully there will be plenty there! That's had me thinking about holidays and why I love scrapbooking - you can relive those moments anytime of the year just through a layout.

Here are two pieces of work that are beach and holiday related. The first is a quick-make reply card for a nautical-themed party - I found the tiny bottles in a miniature dolls house shop and managed to type a tiny message to insert inside. I used an old piece of cardboard (painted with acrylic paint) and some oddments of string to add to the washed up look.

The layout is from a holiday in the sun in 2005 and features my lovely group of close friends (minus one who couldn't make it). I like what this reminds me of - a week spent relaxing doing not very much at all! I made it for a magazine project last year using the Big Shot dies - the negative strip was the main die used to create the border which was a great way of using up odd photos too. I then die-cut flowers to alternate between the individual photographs too. You could substitute the negative strip for another kind of border, let me know if know other great ways to use lots of little photos! Where would you like to be right now?
