1966 Family Home

It's a great day in Perth today with the maximum temperature set for around 27 C. We've had some horrid humid weather last week so I'm enjoying it while it lasts. :) 
Just want to share a layout I did following the Kaisercraft Febuary Saturday Sketch #1. I've used Kaisercraft 'These Days' pattern paper and collectables as well as Kaisercraft Paper blooms and Mini Paper blooms. The wooden 'Iron Gate' is from Kaisercraft too. The brick pattern on the background was made using the Crafters Workshop 'mini bricks' template with some texture paste and Glimmer Mist (once it dried).  I've added Basic Grey mini alpha stickers to the title. The pics are of the old farmhouse I grew up in and what it looked like in 1966. My parents renovated it a fair bit over the years since these pics were taken.
A couple of close ups. :)


This is what the sketch looks like.

That's all for today! Thank you so much for visiting and for all the beautiful comments you always leave. They make my day. :)
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Until next time.

Hi gorgeous girl, wow you have been a busy bee lately!!. Your layout is so beautiful. Absolutely love those wooden gates and how you have opened them up to your home. I so love black and white pics too. Hope you are well angel, so sorry the weather has been so hot. We actually have a beautiful and sunny day here in UK today.
