Off the Rails - March mood board & sketch layout "1984"

I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of vintage layouts, however my Mother-in-law just gave me a bag of photos of my DH from birth to his 21st and it's given me a whole new realm of scrapping. 

My local scrapbook store also has a monthly challenge kit and the two worked perfectly together.

My layout "1984"

(Note: The envelope has DH first address on it, which I've covered for privacy reasons)

You can visit Off the Rails Scrapbooking here to check out their fun vintage mood palette.

I used the sketch, took inspiration from the old letters and couldn't go past the brown and cream colours.
