There has neither been time nor the inclination to scrapbook with all the turmoil and upheaval in our recent history, but in the past week, I have sat down and started to document our recent move. I didn't take any photos, but thought it was just as important to journal my feelings and emotions because I want to remember this how it is, whilst still being creative with papers, and embellishments.
I find it easier also to use up older style scrapbooking stash in the Project Life/Picture My Life style as you cut things down and use them on a smaller scale.

And to follow, both pages together so you get the idea.
I used a lot of CTMH stamps mixed with other elements, and am happy with how the pages turned out.

I am very happy that I've gone on to use up the whole sheet of MME Penny Lane die cuts, whether it be here or on simple cards that I've made subsequently - one item of supplies used up completely makes me feel justified in buying it, no matter how many years later! Something that I mean to do with the numerous rub-ons I still have in my stash. I will just make it part of my next crafting mission!
I am working amongst chaos and jumble, with nowhere to unpack anything due to the lack of suitable storage, which I am finding it difficult to source in Hervey Bay. Hopefully when having to go to the dentist in Brisbane next week, I will find time to get to Ikea to maybe partially address this issue .... thanks for visiting. :)
