Thomas Gleadowe Banks

My family history research as taken me to a new branch of cousins recently and for this layout I used a photo of Thomas Gleadowe Banks. He is my second cousin x 4 removed. 
Baptised on 6th May 1838 Hail Weston, Huntingdonshire.  He married Ann Maria Christall in 1864 at West Ham. Thomas and Ann had five children - George, Ada, Bertha, Margaret and John. Thomas died in Brentford, Middlesex in 1917.

This layout was made using the February Papermaze Crop Kit designed by Lou Collins.
The kit contained:
Cream Bazzill
BoBunny Star-Crossed 'Altered' and 'Novel'
Cream string
Black Measuring Tape Washi Tape

We also used:
Coffee Stain Mask
Kaisercraft Grid Stamp
Brown Ink Spray
Brown and black ink pad
Sizzlets Alphabet Dies

I added:
Black Dew Drops
Paper clip
Sizzix Thinlets die

Here is Lou's lovely original layout:

Thanks for looking
