The Scrapbook Garden- Family

This layout is of my Great Grandmothers sister Hannah Hughes and an unknown child.
Ive used the Crate paper portrait collection Honeymoon and the Honey Bazzill Dotted Swiss cardstock which is fab.
The quality of these papers are very good , they are lovely to work with , quite thick paper that is good value for money. Pop over to the Scrapbook Garden and have a peep at the range you wont be dissapointed.

I added some german scrap to the side of the photo to lift it a little as I dont know very much about this lady so I wasnt sure what to use for embellishments.

I added the honey cardstock and the quote, journaling and some little rocking horses stamped on the 2 colours of card that I had used to try and give it a child like theme , as there wasnt any toys or anything in the picture to go by. I thought I was safe with rocking horses which have been a favourite with children throughout the ages.

The scallops on the edge of the honey card , and on the german scrap also matched the bottom of the rocking horse tying it altogether.

Im pleased with the layout , I love the colours and I added the Family sticker which was from the Portrait Collection stickers.
Thank you for stopping by my blog its much appriciated and I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
