Inspiration From Glitter Girl And Your Story Matters

I seem to have been missing in action again, except 'inaction' would probably be more appropriate.  Here is a layout inspired by the Two Peas in a Bucket Glitter girl video on using stickers.  It's a great way to use up stickers that you don't really like - for me it's cloud shaped stickers and also group photos that are not great mainly because people don't like having their photo taken.  I had to sneekly take some photos from a distance while they were not looking.
 Here is a close up of one of the sticker blocks. 
I used October Afternoon papers from Sidewalks and the background is from Family Homemaker.  Most of the stickers are from the Sidewalks Collection.  I used American Craft thickers and the title is inpired by the 'Your Story Matters' class.  The background is too busy to add journalling, so I added a bit to the boxes and will do a co-ordinating page with more writing.

And finally this is the view from my front door at about 10am today.  I was going to make the photo brighter but it really was this bad.  You can see the rain falling from the gutters to the right of the photo.  The sky went gray and we had horizontal, vertical and diagonal rain.  It was worse than this, with rain coming vertically off the side of the car, but I had to wait for the window cleaner to move as he was taking a photo too.  It was so bad that I had two window cleaners and the postman all sheltering in my home for a while.  No gardening today, so the bush I am chopping down lives to see another day.  It's been quite sunny this afternoon - no wonder we Brit's talk about the weather a lot!

Hope you had a lovely day.  Anne x

Morning Anne loving your layouts gorgeous particularly the usage of stickers not loving your photo of British weather - honestly where has the sun gone - was that warmer than normal week in March our summer? Because if it was I missed it. Let's hope it starts to brighten up soon (really very soon).
