Whitby Abbey

This layout is for the challenge that I set on the Paper Paradise Forum for October!!

In this layout I decided to just scrap Whitby Abbey, as I took so many good photos of the Abbey! It looks a lot better IRL, just couldn't photograph it!! I hate it when I get layouts like this! I will be scrapping family photos and more of Whitby at a later date! Just wanted to see if I could do a page without people in it!

The journaling is just the history of Whitby Abbey!

The layout is simple, a little matting and paper tearing, a few brads some ribbon. For the journaling tags all I did was rubbed some TH (Tim Holtz) Antique linen over the printed journaling, then went over the edges with TH Vintage photo ink and gently rubbed it over the antique linen! Cut it out and matted it!!!

For the lettering (which is all hand cut again) I sanded the letters with an emery board, and inked the edges with Color box cat eye bronze! And really that's it!!!!

We went to Whitby in September for a family birthday! It was DH's cousin's 60th birthday and she had done some family research and found out the DH's Grandfather's family came from Whitby! It was decided to celebrate her birthday there!! Most of DH's family went and we stayed in a YOUTH HOSTEL (it was basic, but clean and served our purpose), the hostel was in the Abbey's grounds, which was perfect!!! Aimee's birthday was in a few weeks so we had a family party for her there as well!!! A really good time was had by all!!
