There's a lovely sketch at Crafty Calendar this month with an optional theme of all around the world. I like to try to fit in the optional them if I can but this one has had me thinking hard until I decided to do another layout. I really enjoyed making one on Monday and have so many lovely holiday photos I want to put in my scrapbook. This page came together so easily. The background paper is HOTP, others are Papermania Boutique and Dovecraft. I added a glitter strip and used a large MS border punch, one of my favourites. The great thing about layouts is you can use larger items to great effect. The die cuts are from an Autumn set I bought in Michaels in Florida with scrapbook pages in mind. I inked the edges for more definition.
If you have never been to New England I urge you to go. It is so beautiful , the colours are fantastic in the autumn (or fall)and there are some lovely places like Peacham which are like a step back in time.
(In case you have read the journalling and don't know the meaning of pot luck, it means inviting friends round and asking them to bring a pot of food, either savoury or sweet. You then end up with a pot luck dinner to share.)
