Scrapping old photos.

Last month on the Hey Little Magpie blog my post was all about scrapping old photos with new paper collections. When I say old photos I really mean ones from the 1960's & 70's!
This one features my Dad & brother & Shimelle's True Stories collection.
Again The Shimelle collection featuring my Hubby in a primary school photo.
An early school photo of me this time with Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss.
Lastly an early one of me in our back garden using Crate Paper - Craft Market.

Me on Monday.

Again I'm joining Sian in her weekly meme, Me on Monday.
Last weekend found us on Saturday, fundraising for the Jamboree, cooking burgers & running a bottle tombola, found me wearing my first maxi dress/sandal combo of this summer, found Matt Dalek driving!!& locked in a police van!! all at the fete I hasten to add. Sunday was a little slower thankfully but I managed to visit an old friend who was showing her art work as part of Warwickshire's Open Studios. She is a fabulous painter & I have one of her works in my home.
Today finds me stripping & trimming these stunning sweet williams to go in our hall. A lovely home grown gift from my Dad xxx
Hope you have a good week.

Vintage Love Affair Layout.

Today I thought I'd share with you the single page layout I taught at the ScrapaGoGo event at the beginning of the month.
I'd wanted to use an old photo with this class to show how versatile these Websters papers are & to tie in with the name of the event.
The main focus of this class was the construction of the photo frame which was inspired by crocheted frames I'd seen on line. Although this was a little fiddly the Ladies all completed their frames in class.
many thanks for looking.
