Life in the Slow Lane: 4x6 Photo Love- April LO

4x6 Photo Love- April LO

Yes, I do know that it's the last day of May..and that I have therefore missed the deadline for entering my LO into the draw, for  Shimelle's '4x6 Photo Love' class over at TWO PEAS IN A BUCKET .

However, I thought I would share it here.....and mention that Shimelle's video instructions are so  good, it takes no time at all ( once you have decided on which pics to use...always the longest part of the process for me!) to put the LOs together!

I used photographs of our 2009 visit to NYC, for our friend ELF's 50th Birthday

The broad strip at the bottom, is Crate Paper (Paper Doll  Collection-Lizzie), the borders are Bo Bunny (Vicki B) and the for the flap I've used Bo Bunny (Ad Lib) papers and embellishments.

The Alphas are 'Thickers" and I used a 'lacing brad' from my stash as the opener for the flap.

I would also like to mention that on Shimelle's Blog today, she is donating 100% of her class sales to Plan UK's  BECAUSE I AM A GIRL CAMPAIGN . It's a great cause, and you can't go wrong with one of Shimelle's classes! I've signed up for 'LEARN SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY'..why don't you have a look at what's on offer?

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  1. Super page Alison and I really like how you have closed the little flap. xxx

  2. This is a fab way to display six or seven photos together. I love your choice of colours and papers. It all goes together so well and looks wonderful, colourful and happy! A great memory of a happy day out.

  3. Just catching up Alison. Love this layout with the 4x6 photos. Great photos for the 5 in 5 and what a fab idea, would make a great series of layouts wouldn't it. And I am so impressed that you did the full week of scrap in the moment - well done.

  4. Nice layout. I actually have a layout for the MARCH 4x6 Photo Love on my craft table right now, so you are ahead of me. LOL I enjoyed the Learn Something New Every Day class last year and am looking forward to it again this fall.

  5. Great layout, I love this flap idea don't you? So, onwards to a 5 picture double page layout this month {gulp} I think I may be a 'last day of the month' girl as well in May!

  6. I think you'll love LSNED and the best bit is you'll be able to join in again for free the next time she runs it "live"

    Great layout Alison - your paper goes so well with your photos

  7. Lovely page....and the papers go so well with the photos.

  8. This is lovely, Alison :) I'm so enjoying this class! And I shall see you in LSNED, too :)

  9. Glad you are enjoying Shimelle at the moment - great 4 x 6 layout - I have done some in the past & you're right - they fall together so easily!
