A layout with no photos

I've not done one of these before, so I'm absurdly pleased to have done this finally, as I've seen lots of lovely examples on blogs and in magazines.

I've been having a huge sort out of old paperwork/memorabilia/letters etc. which has been cathartic in terms of decluttering, great in reviving old memories and revealing in unearthing treasures from past trips and activities.

This layout came from opening up an old FX envelope.  It had just the perfect amount of memorabilia from our trip to Bruges five years ago.  I have scrapped quite a few layouts so this will complement them perfectly.


I used a sheet of BG Out of Print from my advent swap, the strips seemed to complement the bits and pieces I had.  I added an old 7 Gypsies postcard, some washi tape, old BG brads, and some of my precious new Out of Print ones, a button and used my tab punch to cut a couple of tabs.  Glitz letter stickers finished it off.
