Wrinkle in Time

I present to you.
A scrapbook page.

Ta da!
I know, I can hardly believe it either! I'm so happy to be back in the scrapbooking saddle. I've missed my messy little corner, my hole that I love to crawl down into.

I knew coming back could prove a bit difficult, so I used Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love prompt for this layout about London.

The title of the page actually came from the patterned paper. I'm in love with American Crafts' The Classics line (of which the red/pink paper comes from), it's name for the book The Lion. Another sheet in the line is named after a Wrinkle in Time. Which is what I was thinking of when I took these photos of Big Ben.

I have so many photos of Big Ben across the years. But it's always the same. Just like London is always the same. It's a wonderful place that I can pick back up like I've never left it off. It falls into that timeless, wrinkle in time category. London, the eternal city :)

Now, I have a confession to make...
I've spent too much money on scrapbook supplies lately. =/
There! I said it.

But now that that's off my chest, I can officially say that I've used some of my nice new products! I literally just laid it all on my bed and picked and chose what I wanted to use. And I went for what I thought went well together. It's not my usual color scheme but I'm really really digging it.

I also went for a lot of symbolism. I crumpled up the paper to achieve a wrinkled look and then sprayed and flicked gold and iridescent Maya Mist on it. Love how the metallics look on the dark cardstock. I also used 3 different types of clocks: a metal one, a gold heat embossed one and a printed die cut.

So very happy with my first scrapbook creation in a month! I tip my hat to the lovely Shimelle, who also just got back from a trip. Be sure to check out her blog, it's one of the few that I actually read all the words!

Also, don't forget to comment on the last post for a chance to win a lovely piece of Wall Art!
