This is the day I shouldn't of tried to make this layout. When the idea popped into my head to make a layout about a particularly disastrous day trip I thought what a good story it would be to tell.
It all started when Nigel wanted to go to the British Museum to look at some Celtic Art that he had seen on a TV programme. Now I could be here all day explaining the whole days events and no doubt you would get bored and fall asleep. So here's the edited highlights:
- Missed buses and trains
- Rescheduled trains and underground routes due to maintenance work.
- Evacuated from British Museum due to gas leak scare.
- Took two hours to get home when usually it takes 20 minutes.
Yeah, and then it rained when we walked home as buses are non existent after six in the evening in our town and got drenched.
And the layout.......I smudged ink (made a feature of it in the end), got glue stuck on Nigel's face(had visions of me squidging glue in his face when I wrote that but I meant on the photo), Got bits of fluff stuck on embossed letter so disguised it with more ink, had to trim the photo border (which I like to keep) as drew on it and it looked pants and generally I wasn't feeling the love from this layout.....still don't like it. But it's still a good story.

When I first saw this photo I instantly fell in love with it. I love how the sand draws you towards the three teens, galloping towards the sea, their arms embraced with the azure sky above, not a care in the world. Their life ahead of them, waiting to spread their wings, new adventures await.
I used some gorgeous My Minds Eye papers with Glimmer Misted splodges. Inked, Crackle Glazed and Cosmic Shimmered butterflies flutter and fly. The Journalling reads......'flutter your wings and fly far'.
Inspiration was found at the Chicken Soup site ( gives visual therapy to poorly mojo's) here.

So to cheer up those who are in the same boat and having to go back soon too, here are some wonderful summer blue Cosmic Shimmer sparklyness. I have only just been introduced to Cosmic Shimmer sprays, but in my opinion you can't help but love the saturation of sparkly colour they give. Just in case there wasn't enough sparkle I dotted Stickles glitter glue onto the dandelion stamp ATC and heat embossed with black sparkly embossing powder on the birdie ATC. Sparkly heaven!
