I’m finally getting around to scrapbooking my photos from last year’s trip.

Since taking that photo of the guys in their onsen robes, I knew I wanted to do something with it; their expression was just classic!

I mainly used the papers from Citrus Twist’s March Project Life Kit, though the horizontal piece with the sketches on it was from my own stash.

(Yes, this Project Life Kit came with 12×12 kraft cardstock so you could create a traditional scrapbook page in addition to your Project Life spreads.)

In my week 14 layout for Project Life, you got to see all the blues, greens and greys that were in the March kit, but in this layout you get to see the red, purple and kraft paper that were also included.

Two colour schemes in the one package; it allows you to create all sorts of pages that has completely different feel!

And may I say that I especially love the crosshatched paper. It came from the 6×6 Studio Calico “Darling Dear” paper pad and I nearly didn’t want to use it. But I’ve learnt from Shimelle that if you don’t use a much loved paper while you still love it, you most likely won’t ever use it.

Lastly, the title was made from alphas in my own stash, and there was minimum journaling as I thought the photos more than told the story.

I completed this spread entirely on my own, no conscious use of any sketches at all. But I’ve stared at it for so long, I can’t even tell whether it looks balanced or anything. If someone could tell me whether the page needs more embellishing, or whether the photo mat should be straight, I’d really appreciate it actually.
