A couple more for the album...& a blog hop winner.

When I scrap I generally pick a photo to suit  what I want to create but last year I realised I hadn't scrapped any of our holiday photos so I came up with a plan.
I got as far as sorting out an album & a variety of page protecters. I even got our Singapore photos printed & popped in the protecters for when the fancy took me ...well that was the theory but the reality shall we say has been rather different & here we are at the back end of 2013 & only a couple of lo's are in there.
So I'm trying to get a few more done using inspiration& challenges to help me out plus I've restricted the paper choices to help speed up the process.
I used the Scrap365 October sketch for this page which details a coach tour we went on which could have been boring if it hadn't been for our tour guide Philip who entertained us with stories of what it's like to really live there. All the journalling is in the pocket.
This page uses a sketch set by a team mate on the Sketchy Scrapper FB group I belong to.
These are pics I took out of the taxi window when we first arrived as the views got us really excited to explore despite being shattered from the flight & time difference.
Thanks for stopping by x
I was so totally overwhelmed with the response to my snowflakes that I got my Hubby to pick 2 names for this giveaway :)
The winners of a snowflake each from the Frosty Festivities Blog Hop are Laura Turcotte & Tulpanen. Congratulations Ladies xxx
Please e mail sheena@pjrowlands.com with your address & I'll get them posted out ready to hang on your Christmas trees :)
