Bath Time!!

I apologise at the start that this post is sooo long!! I just have so much to make up!!

I promised you pictures of Bath and I have just had time to make some bits for a layout of the Roman Baths that we visited there. I wanted the layout to look a bit Roman..don't know if I succeeded but I had fun doing it. It's not often I make time for making my own pages...my photos normally end up waiting patiently until they are nearly vintage, lol!!

Here are a few of the photos that I haven't had time yet to scrap that may give you a flavour of Bath.

This is the street opposite the baths and Pump Room. It has wonderful columns and and a real Regency feel!!

How's this for a perfect Autumn day on the river? The sun was shining brightly but the warmth was gone and only the brightness remained.

Imagine walking by the river along this covered walkway on a rainy day in the early 1800's.

Bath was really beautiful, it had an elegant but slightly worn look, not surprising considering how long it has been there!!It must have been striking when the buildings were new and the stone was bright and clean...before pollution and age came along and tarnished it. (I know how it feels, lol) Shabby chic perhaps but certainly a stylish "old lady".

Now it's time for me to focus!! Not easy at the best of times, lol!!

You can download Part 2 of the retiring kit, Little Blossoms here

Here's an other look at the preview for those of you who missed it.

Today there are more great layouts to share. I am amazed at the standard of the pages that people send me and the ones from the CT girls. I am not the worlds best scrapper and I really admire so many of the pages, they make me vow to try harder!!!

The next two layouts are from Linda and it is like a walk back in time!! In the first one Jasmine looks just like she has walked out of a book and the papers have that soft faded look, elegant but faded with time. I love how the photo is framed it gives a great contrast and makes it pop!! A lovely layout and terrific work!!

Her second page is so romantic!! Look at that word art and the stitches are a great touch!! The heart with their initials really personalises the layout and adds to that romantic feel. These wonderful photographs have found a great place to live on in Linda's album to remind the next generation of two important family members. I love it Linda, a perfect heritage page!!

And finally to let you see how versatile this kit is, have a look at Melanie's page. I love the way she has some of the photo's colour and some black and white/tinted, it works so well and really has a dramatic effect...great contrast!! The torn paper mat is a clever touch too! A beautiful page Melanie!!

Hi June, Glad to hear you had such a wonderful time on holiday ;) I was just watching a movie version of the Jane Austen novel, Persuasion, and they kept talking about going to Bath and then there were lots of scenes in Bath. Very Romantic looking place. Thank You for the pretty papers and emblies! Have a Great Day :) Cindy
