Design Kit - layout 2 'Day Trip'

This is my 2nd layout from this months design kit for

I decided to use this old photo from my collection
which I thought matched beautifully to these papers.

Its a photo of my Great Grandparents out on a day trip
unfortunately I dont have an idea where too , when or indeed who any of
the people are whom they are with.

I had to have a giggle to myself that although out for the day they dont
half look very miserable.
I wonder if any of these people have relatives in
Boldon nowadays ?
The fancy hats and long dress coats i thought went well
 with the colours ive used in this layout.

I began with a 12 x 12 of Bazzill French Vanilla ....
my absolute favourite shade at the moment.

I cut some large daisys using Bazzill Blackbird

I used an ink pad to colour the french vanilla piecses
with pink ink.

I joined them together using the Delish Designs

I selected some pieces of card
Prima Almanac Edison and
backing them all with
Bazzill Blackbird I felt the black matting made the pretty
papers stand out alot and gave an air of grace as
everyone in the photo looks as thought they have on their Sunday Best.

I laid out the pieces on the French Vanilla

Added the flowers

Top and Bottom
The image

Thanks for creating this lovely layout Jaqi using photographs from your family album. This layout brought back memories for me as we used to go on organised coach trips when we were younger. Ann x
