October Main with Manda - Part II


Hi everyone, Manda here again and as promised I am going to share another layout I made using the October Main Scrapbook Kit. 

One of my favourite things in the kit was the Echo Park Embellishment stickers. This was because a) it had another alphabet and lets face it we can never have too many of them and b) I love that you can use pieces of these sticker sheets for layering. 
I have never really liked coffee but as I have got older I have needed a caffeine hit most afternoons so I have turned to the trusty mocha and it MUST be served in my Jamie Oliver mug.  

For this layout I added some cream cardstock from my stash as a background. Then I got to work layering using various papers in the kit. I also layered some of the tags under the photo and used the border stickers in pieces (like washi tape) and stitched the in place. 
As I am pretty new to the team, you may not know that I have a journalling phobia of sorts, which you wouldn't realise because I have actually done it on my last two projects here. I don't like doing it, I can never think of what to say and I dislike my handwriting but I am trying to get better. For me a lot of times the pictures will tell the story for me and other times I am scrap the picture because I think it's pretty LOL. But photo's like this one mean nothing without journalling so I am trying to write a little bit just to remind me what story I was trying to tell. If you are like me then the best tip I can offer is just write a few lines, whatever comes to mind but do it on a scrap piece of paper first. 

Thanks for joining me again, hope you all have a creative weekend.
