Go Gina!

We might be fast approaching the end of the year, but I've only just bought my albums for my 2015 pages. I've put away my pages from January to July and identified a few gaps.

One of my missing pages is from April, when my husband and I went to watch the London marathon and support our friend who was running. We were stationed at Canary Wharf, ready to hand over supplies of Kendal mint cake to keep her going.

I picked an arrows background for the sense of movement, and the numbers paper because the random print looks a little like the crowd photo and numbers are an significant element of the day. I have a pack of chipboard pieces that I am trying to use up, and two of them matched the colours of the page so I used them here, finishing off with a few gems and some gold mist.

PS Looking at this, I've forgotten to stitch the chipboard pieces in place; I hate the empty holes, so I'll be doing that next.

  1. What a lovely thing to support your friend and your page looks great, especially love that bright number paper against the dark arrow one. xx
