A Candle in the Window - Double Page Layout Week

This week is double page layout week here at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces, and each day I am sharing a two page layout inspired by a sketch from the BPC Double Take workshop I took last fall. I pulled out the sketches and several batches of photos recently and created all new layouts inspired by the sketches.

Most of the time, I choose a double page layout because I have quite a few photos I want to use, however the sketch I used for today's layout only called for four photos (2 portrait & 2 landscape). I chose photos from a play that Pun'kin Natashia performed in last fall. I included the program instead of a title and embellishment cluster on the left page.


Natashia did a fantastic job in her role as Mable, one of the (angel) children all set to perform the nativity story play on Christmas Eve to a group of stranded travelers.

I like the way this sketch offered plenty of room for me to include the program. Do you include this type of memorabilia on your layouts?

I like to include memorabilia when I can, I'm really enjoying these posts!

Yes, I certainly try to. I've been collecting memorabilia like this since I went to my first school play aged six.

Double page week is such a great idea

Oh yes! Love to add the memorabilia! Another great layout. I too find that I can work in the memorabilia easier when I have a 2-pager to work with. :) These are fun photos and I like how you split the journaling along the top and bottom that photo.

I love that the program provides the title :) I keep *everything*, always with the intention of using it on my pages, but I have to confess that a fair amount of it now comes into the category of 'clutter'...

Great two-pager and yes, I love to include bits of real life too.

Awesome layout, I love memorabilia included. It always seems to be bring back a stronger connection to me.

I like the colours here and how the programme gives the title and the colour scheme.

It depends on the quality of the memorabilia, I worry about it becoming clutter so tend to avoid picking it up unless it will go quickly onto a page. Or at least into the file!

I try to include memorabilia whenever I can. If it is too large, I scan it to my computer and reduce it in size with PS Elements. Love your layouts and the colors you used.

Love the program as the title. I just brought home the play bill and tickets for the show we saw last weekend. I don't have photos of the show, but I want to do a page for the weekend, and will try to include the tickets at the very least.
