Newmarket Race Night


This is the layout from the Newmarket Nights we went to a couple of weeks ago. I found a Crate paper label, labelled "Field Notes" which prompted me to go with the field notes style.

This layout was done for a challenge at Creative Craft World.
Besides the 2 photos positioning, I departed a good deal from this page map. I have used a lot of stamping, my fingers are truly Distressed.

My field notes are titled Horse Racing (beautiful beast), Tote Betting(lost all races), Fish & Chips(oily, argh), Dressing Up(we were not) and The Wanted (should have gone to see Tom Jones instead).

The photos were printed collage style by Truprint. Have you tried this option ? It does not cost any more that regular prints so when I last ordered my prints, I made a collage for each event. I am not sure I will use them all but they were cheap.

Hey I love this - it's like a diary page and scrap page all rolled into one! It's really fab, Ifa.
I love the structure of this page, with your "Field Notes", also the white background, with all the bright paint and inks, with stamping etc. It all makes the most of the photos, to great effect.
Pity about the fish and chips, eh?
