This is Ali's take on the Home Alone poster....

Ali Coles - All Alone

and below the journalling Tag revealed.....

I took my inspiration from the Home Alone poster by Changing the title to All Alone and using a dark background like they did on the poster. The poster also has bright colours in the title and Macaulay Culkin's jumper, as my photo was quite dark and moody I used my patterned paper to add the colour and used the ribbon to try and create a window effect as in the poster. As usual I had to add a bit of bling with the glitter stickers for the title and a few gems. I put my journaling on tag hidden behind the photo.

PP - Die cuts with a view. Glitter alphabet stickers - Me and my big ideas, Urban Bling. Ribbon, flowers and gems from stash.

Journaling reads -
I love this picture of gemma taken at West Kirby Beach. Feb. 05. Whilst it looks in the photo as though she is alone, stranded in the middle of nowhere. She is actually about two minutes from the Prom with a busy Fish and Chip Shop and lots of families with their buckets and spades! We came to the beach that day to fly Zoe's kite and Gemma didn't want to come, she had the right hump when we got there but soon started to enjoy walikng along the beach and even had a go at flying the kite!
Gemma doesn't like this photo because she thinks she looks awful with no make up. I love it because I love the way her natural beauty shines through! So sorry Gem this is definitely one for the album!

Thanks Ali, love your take, and the drop down journalling tag was a great idea, looks fantastic. Can't tell from here that Gemma doesn't have any make on, she looks fine and I too love the natural look! Great job! cheers shazza


  1. I agree Shazza fantastic idea with the journalling tag. Love the pp, not seen it before and it matches brilliantly with the flower

  2. Thanks Tracy,
    The paper is part of a kit from QVCuk. There are some lovely ones in it and I have been dying to get them out!

  3. Love the hidden journalling! What a clever idea and a gorgeous layout to match! xxx

  4. I love the bright colours against the black and white photo. Thanks for stirring my mojo you have just given me a great idea!!

  5. Stunning work. I like the hidden journalling and the 'alone' theme. Terrific!
