To Be or Not to Be...

PLEASE NOTE:
Elements 1 thru 14 were missing from the elements01 zip file.  This has now been corrected but if you downloaded my kit before June 6th, you will have to re-download Elements01. 

Well, Shakespeare is alive and well at WingedHeartOhio!!!  Here's my offering for Pixel Scrapper's June 2015 Blog Train.  The theme is England and my interpretation involves the Bard of Avon, his plays, sonnets, and his heroines!  In addition to the expected ephemera, I've included famous quotations from his plays and also word art featuring common phrases that have their origins in Shakespeare.  Also included are ten of my favorite sonnets.  Creating this kit brought back many fond memories of my senior year in high school when I first studied Shakespeare and experienced my first professional play...The Tempest.  During my college days, my major was English with a minor in creative writing and Shakespeare classes were definitely some of my favorites.  I developed a great appreciation of his work.

Even if you're not into Shakespeare, I hope there is enough vintage-inspired material and common types of elements for you to enjoy scrapping with.

Here are the previews:

Blessings as always,

Oh my Gosh!!! This is totally gorgeous, thank you so much for making these kits, love your take on this month's theme! Even though I lived in England for two years I never had the chance of going to Stratford-Upon-Avon, nor the globe theatre in London :( but I am planning on going to Stratford-ON this Spring, it is our own Canadian version of the famous city, we even have an annual theatre festival and it's a very cute European style city, so this kit is perfect, cheers!

Wow! Your work brings back memories of my college days when I was first introduced to Shakespeare. This is awesome. THank you for sharing and for all the work this took.

Oh wow, I love this. If it's okay with you, I'd actually like to use this for work rather than for personal scrapping. I'm an English language teacher in a secondary school and would love to prettify my Shakespeare lessons with these! :)
