Phyllis Irene Sylvia Holder

Phyllis Irene Sylvia Holder is my mother's half sister (my Aunt) who was born on 22nd October 1922 She emigrated to New Zealand with her new husband Robert (Rob) Dodd, after they married 12th January 1946. I recently found details in the UK outward passenger list for The New Zealand Shipping Co. Ltd. 'The Rangitiki' set sail from The Port of London on 30th May 1946.

Phyllis is the daughter of my grandfather Ernest Holder and his first wife Sylvia Giles. Sadly Sylvia died a few weeks after Phyllis was born. Phyllis served as a WRAF in WW2 when she met Rob who was a Spitfire pilot.

Phyl and Rob had three daughters and now have many grandchildren and great grandchildren. 

I made this layout using a kit from the Merly retreat last summer. I was unable to go to the retreat, but lucky enough to purchase a few of the kits. The kit layout was designed by DT member Pam Thorburn but I adapted my layout inspired by many of the others shared on facebook after the retreat, I especially liked the one by Elaine Rolfe, 

From the kit I used:
Patterned papers & Collectables - Kaisercraft - Bluebell collection

Gems & Cardstock - Kaisercraft
From my own stash:

Lace & Distress Inks

Thanks for looking
