103m - That's the height of Beacon Hill, the highest point in Norfolk, where we spent May half-term this year. It's not an impressive hill, but we did walk up it from close to sea level, when we could have just driven up.

There's an awful lot of green in my photos, so I wasn't going to match my papers to the photos this time. I actually chose my background paper first, and the yellow and teal flower outlines on that set my colour palette for the page.

I used the 1st June sketch from Stuck Sketches for my page, and stayed pretty close to it. My main issue was the amount of journalling that I wanted. I normally write on the background paper but that wasn't going to be possible here. I ended up writing on the light bits of the stripey patterned paper.
