Kraft Plus - December challenge

a little hectic with the shopping,
day to day living
so it is important to stop..
and take a little time to remember
why we scrapbook
who will look through the albums
will someone be interested to know that we lived in
Boyne Island for 3 years - we bought a brand new home -  
We would swim at the beach after school most days
we grew vegetables
we have lovely memories!!

The inspiration board for the Kraft Plus challenge this month is -

I found a couple of our 'work in progress' shots of the garden,
and my favourite chair too

I was pleased to fit 2 larger of my favourite chair and the waterfall we created with a pond for the frogs - and 2 smaller photos to highlight our vege garden.
Flowers were part of the Southside Stampers camp last August - some lovely ladies hand made about a dozen pieces for each lady... how good!!
Simply inked 'black' the 3 Scrapmatts arrows and did a little stencilling with the black ink to.
When we drive up the coast we always call into see how the garden has grown - we planted everything... down to the grass!!

  1. Looks amazing. Love that die cut! Who KNOWS if others will be interested in our history...but at least it's done if they are!! Funny, I had a friend who lived at Boyne Island for about the same time!! Don't often hear it's name:) Gone off track, oops! Anyways, as always, lovely to have you joining us at K+ this busy month:):)

  2. Such a lovely take on the challenge Alison! Loving the vintage feel with the colours and the contrast of the black stenciling.Thanks for playing along with Kraft+ :)

  3. This is a beautiful page Alison. I sure hope someone is interested in all of our stories!!! Thanks for playing along with Kraft +

  4. Love the story behind this layout Alison, we often drive past a few of the houses we have lived in as well, my family and i probably get a little cranky when they change things 'the new owners shouldn't', i love how you have incorporated your subtle background and embellishments to match your subject matter. Thanks for playing along with us at Kraft Plus xx
