Yesterday I shared the first three layouts using the Scrapabilly May kit (see the full kit here) and I'm back as promised to show you the final three layouts I made using this lovely collection of products.
Using the kit coincided with the beginning of LOAD514 and this month's theme is Past Perfect 2 meaning dipping into our past stories. Or at least, I'm trying to make all my layouts about the past - some more past than others!

Little did I know back then that this connection to Germany would be my first of a somewhat bigger connection, ending up with me living here! I just matched the story with a photo of my on my 17th birthday - Boris and I were both 17 when he won...
Prompt: Mum, I'm board (ie. games we played)
I matched this up with my love of backgammon which comes from when my dad and I used to play a long time ago. I filled the layout with spots to represent the backgammon stones and talked about a few memories I have of that first backgammon set I used to play with.
Prompt: If these walls could talk
I used a photo that I've used several times before but I love the glimpse it gives of my childhood bedroom. I tucked some journalling in behind the photos and added some memories I had. I've asked my mum for a few more details and I'll be adding to it with any more that come up
What a great kit. 6 beautiful layouts which were a joy to create and practically made themselves. Check out the Scrapabilly site (here) to scoop up your own. You won't regret it!
