Lots to Do - Plain and Simple











This is my entry for this weeks Lots to Do challenge which is Plain and Simple.

I have included 2 layouts, this wasnt as easy as I thought it would be.

My first one is my Mam when she was younger with her two dogs Roy and Lassie.
I used black and cream papers a very simple layout. I love black and cream together i think it always looks classy.

My second layout is black and ivory , its of my Aunt Amalia Augusta Kell ( nee Douglas) this is the same lady who featured in my red and gold layout a couple of weeks ago with her Father. She used to be on the stage and this photo is one of her in a very elegant dress.
I added a grungeboard flourish which i coloured with a black ranger dabber which gave it a matt finish, and an 'A' with a couple of diamantes just to add a little bling .

The quote on this page was done in gold embossing powder again giving it a little bit of class.
Im pleased with both pages and like them equally for different reasons.

Once again thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
