The Best Things In Life Aren’t Things

Another reason to pull out the paper and glue again … this time a sketch from Once Upon A … Sketch and some extra photos I forgot to put into my January project life pages.


I like this sort, a sketch, a theme AND a requirement to tell the story. I thought this photo taken on our wedding anniversary back in January was a suitable tie in to theme ‘The best things in life aren’t things’

I found I had more to say than would fit in the usual manner on the layout so I’ve written around the edge of the page.

It seems I’ve taken a lot of sunset photos this year … I’m wondering … are the sunsets particularly more beautiful this year … or is it that I’m just noticing them more?

The sunsets we see from our house have a new addition to them … maybe that’s what’s making me look twice.


Those sticks on the top of the hills … are actually huge wind turbines and they seem to be multiplying … each day another one appears.

Up close they look like this …


Actually that’s not really up close … up close you can’t fit the whole thing in … if you look carefully to the left at the base you can see a person standing on the ground … that gives some perspective to the giantness of these things.

But … in my sunsets they are just sticks that look slightly wrong along the tops of the faraway hills.

  1. Beverley I love this layout. The colours that you have used to accentuate the colours of the sunset is beautiful. I love that you included a little pic of the two of you too. The journalling around the page is a wonderful frame. Congrats on 18 years 😀 Thanks so much for playing along with us at OUAS this month. 😀
