Saturday Spotlight Wk 11

Welcome to The Saturday Spotlight!

This week's page is by Margaret (lady_mags). I love the 'in the moment' photo and the way she's picked out colour and used it in the LO.

More of Margaret's work can be seen on Daisytrail.

"This page is of my son Kevin's (he is on the right of the photo) wedding day on Feb 18th 2011.
This photo is of him, his son and his best man portrays to me the start of such a happy day, but also my son was carrying his son Jake's lunchbox because Jake didn't want to eat the food at the reception so took his own lunch. I just find it so funny the groom walking up the path to this beautiful castle to get married carrying a lunch box!
My inspiration is that it is such a happy, natural photo.

The kit I've used is Courtney's Digiscrappin 'Dreaming of Fall'

I am66 years old and come from cumbria. I started crafting about eight years ago making cards, but changed to digital crafting 18 months ago and just love every moment creating pages. I am totally addicted!! "

Thank you Margaret x

This is another one on my son, Matt's photos. He took it in our back garden this summer and it's a young fox just waking up and stretching. Of course, he had no idea that Matt was there - he'd been sitting and watching for a couple of hours. 
He has more patience than me lol.

I know lots of people don't like foxes, but we love our little family of them. Every year they have 2 or 3 cubs and it's so lovely to watch them playing and growing up.

Welcome to this week's WOYWW. Hosted by Julia over at The Stamping Ground.
I missed last week due to life becoming rather busy.
This week is also a bit hectic - mostly with Buzzbee Designs, craft fairs etc. But I did find time to do a couple of digi scrap pages.

Just a note on my attempt at a photo a day through November. I have to admit failure on a grand scale lol. I think I only got to day 10, then gave up. Turns out I don't have the self discipline I thought I did. In fact, I now admire very much the people that do pull it off. How do they do it? My life gets in the way big time and it became such a chore.....oh well, back to the digi-scrapping!

This first LO is of Poppy in the leaves when we were out geocaching and the second LO is a very nostalgic one of me and my cousin at Christmas 1969!

Thank you for dropping in. I will get around as many desks as I can this evening. Happy WOYWW everyone! xxx

Pure Nostalgia

I have to share this new kit from Sahlin Studio. It's called Santa's workshop and is soooo absolutely retro! I think that anyone who remembers Christmas as a child in the 60's and 70's will relate to it.

I have to be honest and say that I rarely go for the whole retro thing, but this took me back to my childhood with such clarity, I fell in love with it :)

I've used it to scrap this page of me and my cousin at Christmas in 1969!. Such a magical time and impossible to recapture...but I've had a good try lol.

I've made the material sheets into panels as they remind me so much of the wrapping paper at the time. The Father Christmas character is exactly how I remember him too!
 I have no idea why I look worried as Christmas was always a very happy time...although I did always fear meeting the actual 'real' Santa (I wasn't good with strangers lol).
