Oh, Scrappy Day

Half-way through January and I finally have two pages to show you.
It's been a slow start to 2014 for photos, paper and glue.
First up is a page made to fill a blank spot in 2013's album.  It's not often I scrap purely about myself.  It's a scraplift from the current issue of Scrap 365 and the original design is called Super Cute by Els Brige (you can find it on page 59).
Proper poorly is a phrase my mum always used when we were younger and it meant being ill enough to spend time in bed rather than the its-only-a-cold-just-get-on-with-it type of illness.  
The second page is about our much loved Chelsea Pensioner friend and how much the relationship means to all of us.  This page is taken from a sketch by Shimelle.
Clicking on either image will make the journaling much easier to read.

These are both really lovely Ruth, I like the white space and the colouring in the first layout looks fabulous.

Are you doing PL 2014? I know you said you decided not to share last year ... any chance of a small peek? Sorry if this is impertinent :)

You've produced lovely designs and stories here - I do think the righthand photo really shows how proper poorly you were (we say that here too!). Doesn't he look cute in that hat?

I like the use of the slide mounts as frames in a row - such a appropriate title too. We use that phrase as well. TBC does look so cute in that hat.
