Scrapbook Sunday

I Used 2 B A Pencil:
Today's first page was inspired by this awesome Cosmo Cricket paper and I choose the blue and orange colour scheme to work with the paper and the photo of me as a little girl. Then it was a case of raiding my stash to find things that would work. I have to admit to loving the Bam Pop journaling spots, I just wish they would make them in bigger sizes too. I have real trouble layering journaling spots, they never look right to me. I think I would probably journal more on my layouts if I could find some big journaling spots because they're all so tiny and I hate writing straight on the page.

 "Although my initials were H.B. nobody seemed to link this to the well-known pencils. Instead, Bromberg got changed to 'Brom-burger.' Now i'm married, my name and initials spell out 'Hello.'
Helen = 'Hel,' Louise = 'L,' Overton = 'O.' "

U R My Silver Lining:
The idea for this layout I've had floating around in my head for a while, the original quote is "Every cloud has a silver lining" meaning, to me, that from every bad thing something positive will happen. My husband Paul means everything to me, he is my every happiness and he helps me through every bad or negative thing in my life. That's what this layout is about and ode to my husband, so he knows how special he is to me

I've been looking for some silver cardstock for ages to make this layout and I finally found some going cheap in The Range. The photo was taken when he was heading to a neighbour's baby's christening (I was working) and he looked sooo gorgeous I just had to take a photo.
