A second layout from yesterday

As soon as I saw this kit, I knew what I wanted to use it for. It’s not very easy to find carousel elements, and I have lots of photos. I decided to rescrap the ones from Milton Keynes, but I have ones from Chessington, Thorpe Park and the fair to scrap as well. The kit is on promotion until the end of today, for $2. If you scrap a layout with it you get the other half of the kit for free. It’s a very cute Mary Poppins kit but versatile enough to do other things with as well. Since I am in an enabling sort of mood, here are the previews of both halves (The $2 and the other half you get when you scrap a layout with it) and a link to the challenge in the forum.

The first image is linked if you want to buy it. Here is the layout I made with the first half of it.

Journalling reads: You have always loved to ride on the Carousel. When we took you to see Father Christmas, we had some time to waste before the timeslot on our tickets. We decided to take a walk over to the Carousel inside the shopping centre. Usually we go for the seats we can all sit in as a family, like the Cinderella carriage. But this time we had quite a lot of stuff that needed holding on to. You decided that you wanted to sit on one of the white horses. So Daddy went with you on your first ride, while I took photographs. Then you asked to go again and I went on with you while Daddy waited and took some photographs. On your 3rd turn you asked to go all on your own. You only needed a little bit of a boost to get up onto the horses. It made me realise just how much things have changed. You are growing up so quickly and becoming more independent every single day. 1st December 2007.
