More Scrapbooking - Lunch in Delhi

I got a bunch of photos back from the developers this week, and despite Royal Mail's best efforts to mangle them, pretty much survived the trip.

 I currently use Snapfish, as they have been pretty good but I did think some of these had come out a bit dark. I've used Photobox once before - for the Journal Your Christmas project as I wanted some different sizes and Photobox do have a great selection on that front. I'd love to know who else people use and what results you've had?

But back to scrapbooking. Most of the photos I ordered were fairly recent ones, but I also sent off for a few from 2006 which I took on our last trip to India. There was a particular story I wanted to tell about my lunches at the hotel and I finally got around to doing it yesterday (and yes, I was actually supposed to be trying to find my desk under the pile of paper and supplies that had migrated onto it. I did tidy up - I just scrapped whilst I was doing it!)

Lunch in Delhi
 
 
This is very much a favourite memory and I am so glad I finally got around to putting it down on a page. I didn't really have the right alphabet supplies so I had to make do with what I had. The larger sticker font of 'Lunch' was a bit of a fight as the letters are now so old and rather well travelled and they had gone a bit funny - I had to wrestle with them to get them off the carrier sheet. It didn't look quite definitive enough so I went over them with some black stickles which has helped give it a little sparkle, and texture.
 
 It's probably not what I would have done if I'd had the choice of something else, but I wanted to get the page done, and finished, rather than having it sit around until I found the 'perfect' letters. In the end, that's the important thing, isn't it?
 
 
Hope you have fun in whatever crafty endeavour you are indulging in this weekend.
 
 
Love, Maxi
