Summer of '59 Six and Challenge reminder

You know what in the box, it doesnt look as though there is that much, but there must be as I am showing different ones each day!
But before I begin, just a quick reminder about the current challenge over at Kraftyhands Challenge blog, Flower Frenzy, and if you use Kraftyhands artwork then you stand to win £20 worth of PHYSICAL crafty goodness of your choice!
Here's todays offering:
Warning photo heavy, sorry!
 Okay lets see how the layout goes............
Front cover and base cardstock: Cream Pearlised card, wrapped with Ribbon from the guys at Kraftyhands. Little handbag from the CD printed onto 4x6" photo card, as is the front image.
The letters and flowers are made with Paper Clay by Martha Stewart.

First page, sentiment from one of the sheets, some scraps of paper, saying Memories, as this is intended as a gift. The chair is a design by Silhouette online, and I covered the seat with a Scrap of purple dotted ribbon from the boys at Kraftyhands. Some little pearl drops to finish the chair, Main image is one of the card backgrounds, as is the backing paper on the facing page, and under the image. Then I added a little card with one of the unshaped images, from the CD, using the same ribbon, and pearl dots. The Main image forms a pocket on each page. The pink bow is again Ribbon from the Boys, and the little shoes are embellishments from my stash.

Next page, please note each time I have taken the theme  from the main image on each page.
Again scraps from my stash for the mats, dotty paper from the CD to match the frame around the image and one of the Ladies Walking papers. The Yacht is from Silhouette online, and again a small card with one of the images from the unshaped card toppers set. The Button at the bottom, is another of the Kraftyhands boys embellishments designed for the CD.

This one is using one of the Ladies Walking papers, one of the Beach Hut papers, again one of the images from the card set. Some scraps from my stash for the mats, and the car is another Silhouette online store file.
This is lovely, I love this chandelier! Unfortunately I cant remember where this file came from, oopsie!
But again dotty papers from the CD to match the frame on the image.
Another Silhouette file for the palm trees, good job I have a subscription! Beach Hut papers, and some scraps from my stash.

Last page
A lovely dressing table, again from Silhouette, Dotty papers and some scraps. Both buttons came from the Embellishment kit for the CD, as did the ribbon, but you'll have to figure out where the other button and ribbon are, 'coz I aint tellin'!
I know this seems quite plain inside, but the intention is for the recipient to fill it with notes and keepsakes themselves, no good me shoving loads of stuff in, when it might not suit the person on the receiving end! I have just provided a starting point.

This is where the majority of it has come from:

Launching on Create & Craft 30th May at 12noon & 4pm

so I hope you'll get your copy while the goings good.........
