It's the start of the Nov Kit over at Being Scrappy this week so I decided to use the vintage style 'Nostalgia' papers by My Minds Eye to kick off the month. There are loads of papers and a fab sheet of matching die cuts to coordinate. I used a pic taken when we were out for dinner with our good friends Simon and Julia in Nottingham where they now live. It was really nice to catch up with them as we don't get to see them as much since they moved away. Julia's mum came over to babysit which gave us chance to have some quality adult only time!
I used the dark brown side of the 'Chevron' paper as the base for my layout.
Then cut a 7.5" x 8" piece of the peach 'Scallop' paper, ink the edges and stick down.
Next cut a 4" x 7" piece of the grey striped 'Diamond' paper, ink the edges and stick down to the right side of the previous piece.
Cut a 3.5" x 5.5" piece of the diamond 'Roses' paper, ink the edges and stick down just over the striped paper.
Mount a 4.5" x 6.5" photo (cropped down from 5" x 7") onto the deep coral 'Scallop' paper, ink the edges and stick down.
Punch 4 x circles in different sizes, ink the edges and stick down along with some of the matching die cut pieces. I did add a few buttons and twine from my own stash to finish off.
Don't forget to add some journaling just under the photo, I hadn't added mine when I took the layout photos.
Finish off with a title, this one is the Thicker alpha that comes with the Kit.
