When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

The Album - WOYWW pages

Good afternoon!

I'm back to share a few more of my pages from my birthday week album. This time it's the pages featuring the WOYWW crop!!

As a double spread.

I confess these photos were taken by LLJ's husband, Gordon, who takes wonderful photos.

I've added a bit of journalling to detail the day. The doily reminds me of cake!

As you can see it's not all flat.

I took selfies!! Lol

Another doily and I found my large letters so added the WOYWW. 

Across both.

You'll notice throughout my album that I mat and layer my photos depending on what I want to stand out of the photo. In these selfies I want our faces to be the main focus so I mat them onto light pink. If I didn't the blue and black would be prominent. However as we go through you'll notice different colour mats. So keep an eye out. I learnt this trick from a scrapbooking show on tv.

I really didn't realise what a difference the colour of the mats make till I tried it myself. 

Let me know what you think! I'm working on the pages that show my trip to Wembley now!
Take care Zo xx
