In The Attic Layout

So today I'm THRILLED to be showing off what would have to be my new favourite paper range... the divine In The Attic Collection!

oh how I love all these deep reds and browns with just a hint of lime greens mixed in here and there. I suspect I'm really showing my age now as all the old icons in this collection really are the bits and bobs I grew up with... the old vinals, leather bound books and especially those old suitcases!!

I actually chose these photos to go with these papers because I have some photos of myself as a baby sitting about with dads empty beer bottle trying to extract something from the bottom in order to work out what all the fuss was about this forbidden drink!!? And I've seen countless others over the years as well, it seems most parents will grab a camera and get a 'oh thats so cute' photo when the baby grabs a beer bottle, so running along those lines I decided this was a classic theme and needed a classic collection to make it work.

I can promise you that these kind of photos just never worked for me on the soft baby pastels or traditional pinks ... it's very difficult to make a page look pretty and pink when your subject is a kid with a green and red beer bottle! LOL

In any case i was very happy with how this turned out in the end, but I suppose these are my favourite colours so i was bound to fall head first into this one!!

Thanks for stopping by for a look.
Cheers from Kel.
