Whales & Lemons....


Whales & lemons... you would not think that these two completely random things could be put on the same page to create a single layout, but apparently they can, and can turn out great!


For this spread I used a 12 x 12" Becky Higgins Design Z pocket page, the August Kit for Sassy Scrappers, some awesome Elles Studio: Love This Smile stamps and a few other bits and bobs from Sassy. This layout all came together with the help of circles, navy and pops of yellow amongst some crisp white.






It's fair to say this last year has seen a fair few lemons thrown at us.... I decided to save all those lemons and cash them in for some lemonade in the form of a whale cruise. Ok, it's a completely out there idea but hey, I loved the pop of yellow with the navy, had a few lemons to use and thought as cryptic as that is, it totally works.
