Saturday Spotlight wk 4

Welcome to the Saturday Spotlight!

This week I have chosen 'Then and Now' by Valerie Rushton. (valrushton)

This is so eye catching! The photos are beautiful and I love the way Val has lifted the pink from the photo and used it in her LO. I also really like the circle framing. Plus I adore these 'then and now' pages :)!  Check out Val's other fabulous LOs on Daisy Trail 

This is my beautiful Grand daughter Rudy. She came to live with us when she was 15 years old and has just gone off to university in London. I am in the process of making her an album for Christmas.
I am married with 4 children and 7 Grand children. We have just celebrated our 53rd Wedding Anniversary. 
My other hobbies are photography and card making. I am lucky having 7 willing Grand children to photograph for my pages.
I've been digital scrapbooking for about 5 years.
The kit used for this page was 'The Mix' By G&T Designs. I really love all of their kits.

Thank you for sharing Val xxx

Morning everyone and welcome to another desk hopping Wednesday! If you have no idea what I'm talking about...pop over to the Stamping Ground.

I haven't done all that much this week. Life has been getting in the way...very frustrating lol!
But I have made this page of Matt and Debs. A typical silly moment and sums them up beautifully.
I used elements from kits by Sahlin studio, Pink Reptile Designs, one Little Bird, Amy Wolff and Kate Hadfield.

I am very excited to have been sent this photo last night. It's a red deer stag taken by my very talented son Matt. He took the photo in Richmond park London on a field trip to see the rutting. I can't wait to 'scrap' it. I love working with Matt's wildlife photos.

Have a great WOYWW everyone. I am lucky enough to have the morning off work so will be doing plenty of desk hopping (trouble is I am freezing cold as the reason I am home is that I am waiting for the man to come and fix the boiler)!
Thank you for any comments left. Every single one means so much xxx

Autumn Inspiration

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm always so inspired by acquiring  a new digi kit!  Silly really as I have so many already (sort of an addiction of mine really) ... anyway, I've had a look around and these are some Autumnal kits that I think are great and very inspiring. All I have to do now is take some Autumnal photos lol x

This first one is a collab kit over at Scrapbird  -  scrumptious!

This is Gothic Autumn from Algera Designs  Deliciously dark! 

Love this one too. Simply Autumn by Laurie ann.

Finally is 1000 Colours from Digidesignresort  A jam packed kit with so many fab embellishments.

I haven't decided which one to buy yet. Just window shopping really. But I will treat myself to one of them. Now I'm off to find some freebies.......  X
