52 Stories – Number Forty Five – First Time for Everything

Late last year I was lucky enough to get my hands on an Ali Edwards Story Kit™ and Story Stamp™ It was part of a sale event. I went for the ‘First’ kit and the ‘Stuff’ stamp set. Love them both and hope she does another sale of these products as they are excellent and packed with good stuff. I have been tempted several times to buy the full priced kits and getting the opportunity to see the products makes me want to hop on board with that even more. We will see…..

Anyway the reason I am rambling about that is because the 4 x 6 card on this layout came from the kit and I loved that it gave me both a spark for the title of the page but also a colour scheme to use too.

First time for everything

Here is the story from this page –

I got Gav into a taxi, now that’s amazing. I’d wanted to take H in a London cab every time we’d visited but had never managed it until this time. The combination of change in my pocket, the 40 minute walk to the Science Museum, the heat and the fact that I needed the loo came together and I just hailed one! It was a speedy trip and so worth the look on Gav’s face.

Have I got the story down? Would I add anything more?

My typing went a little haywire here. I missed words out and ran out of room. Really just wanted to add another sentence or two but it does get over the main idea of the story so I must be satisfied with that.

I also liked having the colours for the two cards from the kit match so well and loved the little wood veneer car.


52 stories is a series (or adventure) in my story telling. Can I get the whole story onto a layout? Am I telling the stories I want to tell? Read the inspiration post here.

    Fun story & I really like this layout, simple, clean, focus on the photos & story. No clutter, colours & patterns all work well together. Riding in a black cab in London was one of the first things I did on my first visit to London — umm I should dig out those photos!

      Thanks. I’m finding that my style is becoming that minimal look. I love looking at layouts full of embelishments but can’t bring myself to do that these days. Yes dig out those pictures and tell that story!
