Strip Scrapbooking!

Camp Scrap's 'design with a pro' prompt last week was to use strips of papers on your layout......though I have to admit there's a lot less white space on mine then on the 2 inspiration LOs!!!!
The photos were taken when we were larking around on DD2's birthday.........the girls all glamed up ready to go out.......and how come, these days, they don't even leave the house til 10pm.........Oh pulling faces.......them all laughing at me looking even shorter than usual next to their high heels!!!!!!
I used an assortment of papers and overlays that I'd had for ages........used an SU border punch on the strips........and pinched the embellishments and letters from DD1's black + white PM scrapbooking set!!!
Hope it's as sunny where you are as it is here.......summer has arrived with a vengeance!

Yes it's sunny here and we spent the afternoon in the park with my little nephew. I love the way you've used the strips on this Jacky.

I love this LO...what gorgeous girls you have! I remember those days, back in the mists of time, when we didn't go out until 10pm...now that's my bed time!!! Ah well...at least I can still remember it!!!

It is sunny here but extremely cold!
I love that your girls take the time to goof about with their Mum and Dad before going out ... we used to do the same thing with our Mum and Dad - we still do, we are just staying in with them for the whole night now - too old to hit the clubs now!

I am rubbish with white space! I seem to need to fill every square inch of the page. Love this layout. The black and white is great :)

I love it Jacky and the strips definately show the photos to their best. At 10pm I used to of been out for at least 4 hours and was probably just getting my second wind how things change!
