However, Growth proved a really wonderful kit to use and produced a total of 9 pages - some more successful than others but still a healthy number for the mix of new and older products I had combined. Not much was put back into my stash when I called it a day.
I don't want to bombard you with layouts but I'll share 4 now and 4 later in the month.
One of the things I like best about my kits is the different colour and style combinations they produce and how I get designs and looks I could never have imagined when I pulled the items together. A lot of that is to do with the fact that almost all papers these days are double sided but another part is definitely just having the items knocking around together at the bottom of the kit box so that you see combinations by chance.
This cloud-like paper was the perfect background for the dreamy effect I wanted to create for the prompt, "Dear Santa". I was a late believer and was grateful to get this snippet of a story down.
"The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" was perfect for another tribute page about my beloved grandad. It was always a wonderful time when I got to be with him.
For "The Best of the Best" I started a page about my deep and never-ending love for Duran Duran but right there in the middle of writing up the journalling, my computer died and I had to let it sit for another three weeks until I worked out how I could manage to type up and print out those words without my main computer. Got there in the end and I was happy to have so many little details down as I was certainly beginning to forget some of them. No doubt, when I've tracked down all the memorabilia related to my teenage love, I'll have to add another page to this 18x12.
And this page is the page I made on the day for "The Best of the Best". Just picking out the yellow toned papers and gold elements made this feel as if it'd been made from a completely different kit. And yes, he's golden!
More to share from this kit another day. Any other Duranies out there? Or maybe share who has been your life-long teenage obsession!
