Sharing Pemberley from Cocoa Daisy

This kit was made for my Welsh vacation! I am not a creamy grey scrapper, so I squeezed as much pink out of the kit and Elizabeth add on as I could. And when I had squeezed it all out, I added ink and mist to get even more pink. And I'm not a pink scrapper. At all. But I can wear that hat apparently.

Named after houses and characters in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Pemberley was a lovely Victorian looking kit, lots of My Mind's Eye, Pink Paislee, and October Afternoon. I pulled out my new Cameo Silhouette a couple of times, like with this title. I loved the die cuts from Pink Paislee, the label stickers from MME, and the stickers from Echo Park, they just all worked.

This is my kids, being silly. Say the title with a British accent and you've got it.

This is me, believing that I could get a good picture of at least one of the 11 million sheep. Not a chance my friend.

This is me in London, getting all teary about Paddington Bear while waiting for a transfer at Paddington Station on the Underground.

And I made two cards, both saying Hello Love, one a Victorian version seen below.

I ended up being rather happy with what I created. I'm learning. It may not be "me" but I can still make my style work with it. I'm learning. :)

Beautiful!
...I will confirm that I used a British accent when reading titles. AWESOME.

Ha... getting photos of sheep and getting them to stand still or face the direction of the camera is near impossible, but well done to you for trying. LOL!
Great work with the kit Emily.

This was a fantastic kit. I love the Paddington page- you are getting such huge pop from the elements! I have to dig out that print- I know I have it somewhere. I haven't seen a project using it that I didn't love. I also love that FABULOUS star and Maya Road kraft wreath!!!
