Black is Back!

I used to scrap a lot on black cardstock but haven't done it for ages. While on retreat I pulled some out and created 2 layouts using it. I think I have fallen in love again. These are both 'just because' layouts - and they both happen to be full of October Afternoon goodness! This photo was taken by Michala on our Fathers Day picnic.

I have used some OA 'Woodland Park' on this one:

And I've added some Prima flowers and the Studio Calico camera. I pulled out my white gel pen and doodled around the outside of the patterned paper too.

I had had the big kids school photo for ages but wasn't really sure how to tackle the really bright yellow of their uniforms on a layout. So I just focused on matching the navy blue instead. I have used some OA '9to5' here.

And doodled with my white gel pen once again.

These My Little Shoebox alphas were perfect for this layout too!

Thanks so much for stopping by...


  1. Awesome pages Lauren, I really like your style! I've recently discovered I like black backgrounds too, it makes everything really pop!

  2. I love using black cardstock to make colours stand out.

    Awesome pages.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment! I love reading them. :)
