Västerås

This weekend our scrapbook crop had a sleepover - we scrapped from 10 am on Saturday to 12noon on Sunday.  There were delicious cakes, great company, plenty of laughs and dozens of layouts were made between us.  This isn't one of them though!


I rarely "finish" a page at the crop because I like to double check the journalling, dates etc, may have the "perfect" extra embellishment at home or decide that what the page really needs is a touch of machine sewing!  However, I was using papers from this collection (Teresa Collins "My Name Is") and remembered that I had yet to share this one on my blog:


The photos are of three very different toweres in Västerås (the Swedish town I used to work in).  The first two (the cathedral and town hall) were unchanged, but parts of the city centre were filled with unrecognisable glass covered architecture.  Not really surprising after thirty years I suppose!

As someone who, these days, only uses white or black card stock for the background, I must admit I love the colour you have used. It really makes everything pop and matches perfectly with the photos. Just gorgeous. I love the eclectic mix of old and modern buildings in a place.

I think I made a dozen of my own ;)
Love the layout and all the arrows which highlight the fab and beautiful photographs.

I agree re never finishing a LO at a crop - no matter how much I bring, I still don't have that finishing touch until I get home! I really like your LO - very clean and graphic

Super page - I really like the strip of photos in the middle against that glorious peachy orange background, with the little embellishments pulling the eye along. It seems a very interesting place and another thing I didn't know about you!
