Very old stash...........and new photos

A very big HELLO from a very sunny South Shields hope everyone is enjoying the sunny weather and another Bank Holiday weekend. I've been home from work since before Easter, we haven't done much exciting just spent time walking the hound and enjoying the sunshine.......ooh and a little crafting al-freso. I've been enjoying Shimelle class "beyond Blogging for scrapbookers"............but now I'm a little behind got a bit disheartened as when I installed Google Analytics I didn't input the code correctly, so didn't  have any data :( I'm rubbish at as techo stuff but with Shimelle's help I'm up and running. 

Today's layout features photos which were taken on my day in photos featured the other day......I took loads as it was a gorgeous sunny day. I had photos so then to find papers, I think these old Crate papers from the "Prudence" collection also some of the embellishments worked well and along with another sketch from creative scrappers..............hey presto!!!

Remember I posted about journalling a few days ago...........Well I have journalled. Journalling reads " Mable your such a friendly soul. On our walks you love to say Hello to everyone"......shes such a sweetie, very short journalling but its a start.

As I use old stash for this layout, I wondered while doing this layout if people like me prefer to use new stuff?or dig deep for some old stash? or even mix both old and new? Why not challenge yourself to use a old paper range? please leave a link if you do.........thanks x

Fab page, love the symmetry. I use a mix of both but prefer to use a collection of papers so I know they go well together :)
