still gold


At the beginning of the month, I had a reunion with my GOLD team: the girls I spent a year planning out voluntary project in Cambodia with, and the girls I spent an amazing three weeks with helping Cambodian Guiders.

It was great to catch up, and while we only see each other sporadically, we had a brilliant time catching up and it always feels as though no time has passed at all.  I posted the photo here as part of One Photo and Twenty Words.


Another couple of envelopes make an appearance: I used one to hold the journalling and one that I 'addressed' with all our names.  All the other elements are arranged on the diagonal.


I popped up the hand-cut title on little foam squares to make it stand out and then scattered a few embellishments here and there.  A little peg, obviously, and a selection of stickers, arrows, clips and a little chipboard geotag.  They were pretty cute!


Yep, I'm still not tired of little envelopes, my black squirly pen and project life cards.  And the little photos I print at home using a Fujifilm Pivi Printer.  I love the Instax-style Polaroidy look.

P.S. January is shooting by and I think I've now found my way of keeping all the emphemera from the month in an appropriately scrapbooky way.  And thinking that I have a way of organising and saving it makes me more inclined to pick up business cards and bits and pieces when I'm out and about.  I've got quite the stash!

  3. Another brilliant design! I love how the eyes travel from the photo to the title and journaling and vice versa! Hand cut titles always have a special place in my heart :)
