When I was a lad...

This layout was inspired after a visit to Natty's Blog. I haven't copied her layout as such, but enjoyed her use of deeper colour, when I would have naturally gone for icier ones.

I have used warmer blues and chocolate browns, including chocolate brown ink for stamping. The florally flourish stamp is from an old Cee Dee's set.

I cut a hole in the main background sheet and rolled back the edges to give a feeling of " peeping out through the letter box". Punched and layered flowers in co-ordinating colours with bronze brads for centres. I cut the scollaped edges with fancy scissors.
This page is for when Chunky Monkey is telling his kids "this isn't snow, we had real snow when I was a lad!"
