Next! A fantastic DT submission from.....

Melissa O'Neill - About Stanley

Hi Shazza, I totally loved doing the September challenge, just so into journalling at the moment, as I started to go back in my albums and really missed journalling on some of my layouts. Hope you like my September sub, Brown and orange, my poodle Stanley and those little flowers are mini orchid blooms (only joking) but they are cute little orange flowers. - Mel


Hi Mel! How cute is Stanley, what a gorgeous little poodle! Love the photos of Stanley with your friend Jan :) Love how you sectioned your layout and journalled on each side of the photos.......It's great to catch up on some journaling on some older layouts. Great work Mel! - cheers Shazza


  1. This looks great!!! The colours and design are perfect for these older pics! And thanks for reminding me I should journal more often ... I find it especially hard to know what to write with older pics, as if time has erased all inspiration on what to write... I'm definitely going to try harder seeing this result!

  2. Stanley looks very loved and I really like the little vintage elements on your LO!

  3. i remember seeing you create this here, and absolutely love it mel, awesome work, i always love your work

  4. You are right about journaling--it's so important to capture the memory! Also love your LO, Mel, especially the die cut borders!
    Hugs, RobinJ

  5. Love all of the scalloped edges in this layout... the subtle colour combination is gorgeous! xxx

  6. I used to find journaling a pain... until I started keeping a personal blog (I don't share it publicly) I write a quick something each day so I can go back and grab those quotes or little stories I used to forget.
    It can still take me fooooorever to get around to actually getting it on a LO page... lol, but at least I have some 'Cole's Notes' to go back too.
    Great Page BTW... what a sweet lil'pup! :O)

  7. Cool decorative layout! I love how your journaling turned out :) Nice one!

  8. Love this LO, like a quilt really! Love all your journalling & your 'vintage' style.
