I wanted to use a full pattern background and this Graphic 45 is perfect. I cut up the borders page to use as the stripes in the back layer and just kept adding.
Kitten Tip - if you put a strip of double sided tape on BEFORE you cut the strip it saves so much fiddling about
I used some of the matching journaling cards (it's Come Away With Me from last year) and wrote on the labels. This is a favorite picture of mine - it is me and William on top of the hills on Rydal Water - it was a glorious sunny day and I made it up to the top over the caves. The views across the fells are just amazing.
