The Scrapbook Garden - Grandad

This is another Scrapbook Garden layout using more of the Crate paper collection.
Once again they are from the Portrait collection, this time its the paper Vintage Lace. Ive also used the trimcraft 12 x 12 in Wicker and French Vanilla from the Bazzill Basics.
I also used some portrait collection accent cuts which are fab.

This is a lovely paper , and an unusual colour , brilliant for vintage pages but I imagine it would be lovely with various shades of creams and browns to do a present day layout also. I love the way they are so adaptable , thats got to make them a must in your kit surely.

I stamped the journaling for this layout, didnt realise how hard it was going to be keeping it all in line....I need to practice more.

I added smaller cuts of card and mounted my photos with the 2 shades of plain cardstock. The photos are of my Paternal Grandfather and one shows him as a young boy and the other as a young man.
I can see a resemblence to one of my cousins in these pictures which goes to show looks are passed down through the family.

I had this rubber stamp of a pushbike which was perfect for the page. I prefer to make as much of the page as I can , and try hard to make sure everything matches in with the other pieces.

I added the journey sticker and the wander coin tag ( which i fastened to an accent cut to give it a more finished look)

I added the arrows to the edge of the stamped description so point to the two photos emphasising the title 'from a boy to a man'.

Im pleased with this layout, and once again its been such a pleasure to work with such lovely papers.
Thanks for stopping by my blog , its much appriciated, hope you have a lovely week wherever you are
