I used a few things from my stash, the lettering, the plain papers, and the chipboard swirlies. The rest is all from the kit!! and i have still have loads more to use!! hopefully i have time to do a few more before dinner!!!! :o) thanks for look, happy scrapping!!!
This is a pic of my mum, again!! She's a stately home, hence the title the manor. everything is from the kit. except for the words and letters. which where from my minds eye and 7 gypsies.
Its very inspiring having a kit and people to talk to about it and challenges and subjects to scrap about that you wouldn't normally think of. So thanks to all the dark scrappers out there, keep up the good work!!!

Say hello to my mother!!! She is in fancy dress and isn't usually a wicked queen hahaha. I cant remember what the fancy dress was for but i think it quite suits her!!
I used some papers from GCD called parisain they are really nice plush papers and although you can't tell from the photo some are flocked and or embossed, which give your l/o a really rich feel.
Also chopped up a prima 'say it with crystal and lace' embellishment using half at the top and half at the bottom.
The flowers are also prima, and the glittery black lettering is american thickets. The lace is scraps from my stash and i have a ton of it, i get it mostly from markets and tiny little craft shops hiding away in places you' never think to look. Because i can't bare to part with anything the off cuts end of in a ever grown bag of goodies, that i may occasional let the kids use, and i mean occasional!!!!

I used bo bunny et cetera pack to make most of this l/o it had lots of lovely papers and some stickers and cut outs, really handy to have all the things you need matching and together!!the large lettering has been hiding in my stash for forever and i have no clue where it is from as the box went long ago!! be the smaller letters are from websters pages story teller, loving them at the mo. and the flowers are form prima!!
So just for you my love, here one of the kids on holiday queuing for a ride. Very colourful!!!!!
I used basic grey romania and the letter is webster pages story teller, and the flowers are from petaloo!!!
I then used a corner punch to make the inner circle and added some prima flowers and a flora and fauna quote. it was all that simple, an look pretty. i also added a pearl from the tim holtz range to the ribbon, you may not be able to see it in the pic. ;0)
This is part of a book i'm making for my other half of his children, although i think i may be more than one book!!!! ;0)
I made her a 12x12 tri folding card, using mostly the flora and fauna range from K & co, she likes the earth tones greens and browns so this fit in perfectly. Only problem being it had to go int he post!!!!
Good news is it did survive!!!! ;0)
