More London Scrapbook Pages

I've got a few more London scrapbook pages to share with you. These are from our second day in London. We started the day off with a visit to the Tower of London, which had a really nice World War I exhibit right outside.

On this layout I got to use up a lot of scraps from my stash. Originally, this was going to be a two-page layout, but it didn't fit that way in my scrapbook album, so I had to cut some pictures and turn it into just the single page.

Apparently I didn't write down the supplies I used on this layout, but the letter stickers are American Crafts Thickers and there's some Crate Paper patterned paper, too.

After the Tower of London, we toured Tower Bridge (often mistaken for London Bridge) and even got to see the bridge's original steam engines. You can see the engines on the second page of this layout.

Got a lot of good views from the top of Tower Bridge! Luckily it was a lovely morning. Supplies on this layout include Lemon Owl Weekend Trip Collection Sunny Morning, Elle's Studio Serendipity Cherish, Webster's Pages Adrienne Looman Family Traditions Twine, My Mind's Eye Collectable by Jen Allyson Decorative Buttons, and Dear Lizzy + American Crafts Thickers Treasure.

What's great about Tower of London and Tower Bridge is that both are included with the purchase of your London Pass! When you purchase the London Pass, you get entry without further payment into the Tower of London plus a 10% discount in all gift shops at the Tower. 

And for the Tower Bridge, you also get entry without further payment. I should mention some of the other things we did on the first day that have special perks with the London Pass. At M&M's World you get a 15% discount in the store. And something else that's right near the Tower Bridge is the HMS Belfast, which we saw but didn't go on, even though the London Pass gets you entry without further payment. Not bad, right?

  1. I love the layout of your pages, and the amount of research you must have had to do before starting. The only thing missing is maybe instead of writing what you did, put a place marker on a map of where you were. Include a ticket or "London Pass" or little collected pieces of paper. That way you have a date that it was done. I love the sticker that say "DAY 2". If you can't do an old English calligraphy, these sticker are perfect. You have given me tons of ideas!
