Jan weekly challenge 3

Apologies right away for the poor photo. the light seems to be really poor the two ends of the day that I am actually home. So I shot home at lunch to try & get a pic ( bearing in mind this has been sat on my desk two days now waiting!!) No Good. Gave up & got the best shot I could!!!

Theme Then & Now/Opposites 5pts
2 or more photos 5pts
2 or more lines of journalling 10pts
2 or more patterned papers 10pts = bonus 30
SLO= 10 total 40 points.
I used 3 different papers (Rob & Bob studio) free in SI, for this as I thought they went well. Again, they are a bit shiny really for my taste. The leaves that decorate the two striped pieces are stamped with a set from Lakeland Ltd. The buttons are from Papermania.
The poor quality makes the journalling impossible to read but it tells how this is one of my favourite trees in our local park & I got a shot of it in Autumn, then & now in Spring.
I have one in the snow but the ink ran out in my printer!!!!!!!
I found this challenge a struggle to do as I didn't feel that inspired by it. Most ideas I had didn't work on paper as ever!!!

I wish you could see the photos better as this tree really is beautiful & seeing it makes me happy!

Hi Paula,

Your layout is beautiful! I can see it enough to know that the tree looks gorgeous with the changing leaves :-)

Thanks also for your last comment on my blog...I don't feel like such a nutter now!
