Timeless Bundle by A-Manda Creations

Well I really have had fun with this bundle. It contains a page kit, some cluster frames, Alpha, Bragbook, Quickpages and some fantastic Word Titles which is the reason I went for this kit

This is my first page, i love the lace mat, and the clustered frame from the bundle

There are a large selection of papers in the kit, lots of floral ones but I decided to use these two checked ones as the colours fitted with my nieces clothing. The word title came with clusters of flowers on it
and i simply add the left hand bird that I think is super cute. Then I decided to not cluster around the photo so added the clock and some other elements and one more bird to the word title to be the clustered part of the page.

There is soooo much in this pack that I decided I must use one of the ready made pages, I chose the quick page, there is another one and some brag pages in the pack too

This kit makes me think of my Grandparents, they had lots of furnishings and cushions and so on that were like some of the papers, so I chose a photo I have of my Mum and her brother, taken in the back garden during the war. The Eternity wordart was ideal for this page
these layouts are all in my gallery at The Studio

Holiday Layouts

Well I decided I had better get on with some holiday layouts- this beautiful kit by Flower Scraps was ideal.
Robbie loves going on the beach when we first arrive on  holiday, this time he wanted to skim stones and make splashes and then do a bit of digging. David and I had taken a pair of binoculars so we could birdwatch too.
On the first day we went down to Hunmanby-it is an isolated beach with cafe and toilets and lots of open sand and sea- what more could you want!

and here is the beautiful kit I used

I have another seaside kit to work with so hopefully will be able to get another couple of layouts done
will be back with them later

Well this next kit lent itself to some onther photos I had- one set being of the geese on the lake and the other being a spring photo taken at the beach on a very cold and windy day

The Studio CT

Well this is my first kit that I am working with. i thought it looked good for heritage layouts, I have been doing some research into my family tree, and have a few photos of ancestors. Starting off with my DAD
I estimated the date for the layout as this was taken just before he started at a Private Nursery School.
I scanned in the original photo and then cropped it for putting in the frame
There is also an Add On kit which I have used for the next layout. This one shows my father in uniform at his training camp in World War 11
I have some templates to work with too so will be back later to post those

June already

Well as usual I haven.t kept up to my blog, and yes i forgot my password and had to change it AGAIN!!
well today i have some news
When I got back from holiday there was an invitation to join a CT, so I am the newbie on The Studio CT, my other CT's at the moment are BooLand Designs and Studio4 Designworks who are both at The Studio so that makes it nice and easy for me
Have spent ages uploading new layouts so thought I would bob on here and let you see them

this kit is gorgeous and was so easy to use, loved making the cluster of flower, leaves and elements around the photo

BooLand Designs has a set of Bundled Retirement kits, in the shop with more to come- 5 kits for $5 is a very good bundle deal
really like how this layout turned out, used the word art that is not part of the bundle from blue skies and sunshine to do the word art. I really like the cute frog  upturned the yellow bucket for his "throne"

Bundle 2

the rainy day and sundays one would be just right for todays weather!!
I like this layout I did with Sweet Calli, just look at the cute wedding couple figures and the page colours fits well with my yellow flowers
there are lots of other layouts so the link to my gallery at The Studio is
