Haukadalur - September 6x4 photo love

I have got a little bit behind with the 6x4 challenge so have jumped back in with the current challenge - September - 9 photographs.  Whilst on our Icelandic cruise I took lots of photographs with this challenge in mind.  I had so many photographs from our trip around the Golden Circle that I ended up doing a second layout using the page from July's challenge - 7 photographs.  So I now have a lovely double page layout using 16 photographs!!!

I used Sarah's Cards May kit for the layouts - MME Stella & Rose (Mabel) and Sunrise Thickers for my titles.

I didn't have any overlays or a large piece of acetate to make the see through pocket on the front so I had to improvise with a small piece of acetate and made a frame for it as it wasn't 12 inches wide.  I then hand stitched the acetate front to the base paper.
I then added eight photographs to the pieces of cardstock and decorated the tops using a Woodware tab punch.

My second page had a concertina element which held 6 photographs and some journalling.

The page opened one way to show photographs

And opened the other way to show the journalling

I am so pleased with how these layouts have turned out and now looking again at the photographs I am amazed at how close you are actually allowed to get to the geysers including Strokkur - haven't the Icelanders heard of Health and Safety LOL!!

So just August to do to get caught back up - I have the photographs all ready!
