New and Old - Shimelle Challenge

I not always able to complete challenges on time, I tend to over think them and then miss the deadline to enter, but for some reason this one came together really quickly, I already had the photographs printed but hadn't chosen the papers or even had an idea of how I wanted it to look.

My decluttering of my room is still a 'work in progress' with quite frankly not much progress happening, but I'm trying to do a bag/box/packet at a time, and this is where I found a kit from 2013 that I purchased from Studio Calico, which had some lovely products in and I was deciding if I would use it or get rid of it.  So I was able to rescue some of the products to use of this layout.    I've done a list at the end of all the products I've used and their approximate year.

Road Trip - Bristol Bound

Photos taken by James when we where going down to Bristol last year for a few days

I used the Studio Calico (SC) as a background and choose two patterned papers from the new Shimelle - Starshine collection - Kelper (blue stars) and Juno (red design)   I bordered punched the blue star paper.  I them looked though my box of older paper and found the star one from I think it was Amy Tangerine's first collection called 'Sketchbook' and Amy Tangerines - Plue One collection 'camera' paper - which I trimmed a row of camera off.

I then found some embellishments from Kaisercraft - Check in collection - not sure what year these are from but I would guess around 2013.

Within the SC kit was some alpha stickers, which I used as my main title, and added a sub-title with alphabet stickers from Shimelle first collection.

I added heart embellishments from Pink Fresh Studio (2015),  The aqua paper here is from Pink Paislee - Memorandum 6x6 pad (2015)

In my box of word phases, I found some from Cosmo Cricket (2011), the gold puffy stickers are from Paperchase.

I finished the layouts off with some wood veneer star, enamel dots and black ink splats.
