This is the third of four layouts that I created during my long scrappy weekend, again using the October kit from Très Jolie.
The photo features the same couple who I featured in my first page, many years later. My Great-Grandmother is second from the left; she’s standing between her two sisters, Tae and Meg. My Great-Grandfather is the gentleman in the center sporting that fabulous mustache.
My Grandmother is the lady holding the baby: my Uncle Jack. On her left is my Great-Aunt Peggy; on her right is my Great-Aunt Anna. (No one could remember the identity of the lady on the end.)

I began by fussy cutting various images and inking the edges before arranging them on a piece of packaging to serve as a background. My hostess, Maggi Harding, supplied the burlap that I needed to change the elegant look of the paper to something a little more rustic. I cut another piece of paper a bit larger than my photo to serve as matting and layered it with more packaging to give it some dimension.

I took the chipboard leaf corner from the Cards kit and a title word from the Mediums kit and coloring them with Kaisercraft ink in Forest, then using Cat’s Eye ink in Pumpkin Spice around the edges.

I went over the flowers with the same inks before gluing them down to the corner of my photo.

And there you have it: one more quick – and easy – layout…
