Saturday Spotlight wk 5

Welcome to the Saturday Spotlight!

This week I've chosen 'Naughty or Nice?' by Tracy (tracpitch).

This is a stunning LO and one of many that Tracy produces. I love the image she's used and the composition of the page is brilliant. The depth she achieves with the shadowing is impressive too!
You can see more of her work on Daisy Trail or on her blog where she is one half of G&T Designs.
I know it's a little early for Christmas pages, but I couldn't resist this one :)

The page evolved from an idea and a lovely little free image I found. I just played around with the textures, colours and shadowing until it felt right to me.
I love clustering and layering elements up to give a real sense of dimension.
Gracie and I met on line at Daisy Trail nearly 4 years ago and just hit it off. After a while we decided to try our hand at designing and have not looked back since - we both love it ;) xxx

                      The kit I've used is Once Upon a Christmas by us lol - G&T Designs.

                                            Thank you for sharing  Tracy xxx

Wednesday again! Desk hopping time. Have a look on Julia's blog if you have no idea what I'm talking about!
A couple of people last week said they would like to see my workspace, even though my crafting is digital. So here it is ... not really much to see, just my laptop and ever present cup of tea! But it's definitely my 'happy place' lol.

I've managed to get a bit more scrapping done this week. Rainy weather has helped there I think!
                                      This first LO is hubby and me celebrating our wedding anniversary. We had a lovely night at our favourite chinese restaurant. Kit used is Storyteller by Just Jaimee.

This next LO is what I did with the photo my son Matt took last week. He actually sent me 2 and this is the end result. I was so excited having these photos to work with.  Kit used is October Love by Aquarius.

The final LO is a bit of a fun one that I've made for a challenge on Daisy Trail. I haven't entered it yet as I'm not quite finished with it! The photo is Matt's girlfriend, Debs. I love that face she's pulling lol. Kit is October Love by Aquarius and Bootiful Day by HD Designs.

Thank you for visiting and any comments left are very much appreciated. I will be looking around at everyone's desks later on this evening after work. Happy WOYWW everyone xxx!

Autumn Pages

Well I finally chose a kit to buy for Autumn. Well ok, to be honest, I have bought 2! So hard to choose just one ( as I keep trying to explain to my long suffering husband )!

Anyway the first is 'October Love' by Aquarius. I love the elements and the beautiful background papers. This kit is available here .

and with this kit I made this page using the photos my son took of this stag last week. He took the photos in Richmond Park London and is far braver than me getting this close to rutting stags!!!

The second kit I bought is 'Storyteller October' by Just Jaimee. This is a new designer to me and I love what I've seen of her work so far. This kit is available from The Lilypad.

I used the kit to make the next LO which is of me and hubby celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary. We are standing outside our favourite chinese restaurant. We tried to take an arty 'selfie', but ended up with this slightly cringe worthy photo  lol. Oh well, it marks the occasion and we did have a great night.
