Mini junk journal

I made this little mini junk journal today, I found some paper that I had aged a while back and used that to make my pages. I used various stamp on most of the pages. I distressed the edges of the paper with my scissors and then went round them with some walnut stain distressing ink.
this was a fun and quick project only 2 hours to make ! :) and a great way to use up your scraps.
hope your all having a wonderful day!

Fun Moments layout

Today I have made a 8x8 layout i have used 3 photos of my boys when they where younger.
I have taken a  few pictures of the Layouts so I will just let you see for your self :)
I am planning on making a lot more layouts as I have so many photo's of the boys that i need to have them in Albums & LO's I am ashamed to say the photos are still in the sleeves them came in from the photo shop :(
Any way I hope you like my layout.
Hope you all have a great weekend !
I have a Video On YT on what i used to make this Layout.
