Beautiful Lavenham

We have often driven past the sign, "Historic Lavenham" but never stopped. We decided to make it our day out destination. It was a very fine April day.  What could be more perfect ? Rows and rows of timber framed Tudor houses in the spring sunshine.

I love taking photos of the houses. I love the contrasting colours, a wonky house wedged in between two straighter ones, some massive, others not so and especially the fact that the houses don't run in a straight line. I wonder if a row of mismatch terrace houses will ever catch on again ? I only wish I didn't have to contend with all the cars parked on the road side.

I made a couple of layouts from that day. The first is to record the fact that H always come out to visit places with us and how we enjoy his company. It makes up for the fact that he always decline a meal at a posh diner.
Next has a couple of photos of houses. I finally got to use my Sizzix die to cut a row of houses out.
Some close ups of the title area with many layers, featuring Basic Grey Mint Julep.

Your layering is so rich in detail! Love the house die and perfect for your pretty page. I don't know the village but it is clearly very visitable and photogenic!
