Here are a few photos from our special day. The main house was built between 1835-1843 and replaced the cold damp original Scotney Castle. It was lived in until 2006 when it was given to the National Trust who opened it to the public in 2007. I visited it that same year and since then there has been lots of gorgeous renovation both of the house and grounds.
A few of the inside rooms
The tree above and the photo below were our views from a bench where we sat at 3pm, the exact time of our wedding in 1981
and this little fellow walked over to wish us a happy anniversary.
I also stamped out my Tim Holtz flowers and watercoloured some of them with distress ink
Here they are. I am really loving adding doodles and Zenspirational dangles and ideas to my pages, inspired by the great Joanne Fink.
Scrap around the world. I was inspired by the lovely textures of the footprint and waves on the beach photo and used these colours on the tree and butterflies with lots of crackle texture. I used an arrow inspired by the sign post photo and my words are inspiration to me just like those of "explore, dream and discover". My journal pages are each 6"x 8" as required .

Anything but cute making magic again I was inspired by all the gorgeous textures in the photos.

Thanks for visiting today me here today. My Hb and I so enjoyed our anniversary. Now when I look at my pages in my journal I can relive that wonderful July day we shared.
