Saturday Spotlight Wk 12

Welcome to The Saturday Spotlight!

This week's page is called 'Xmas in Australia and is by rachelbm (Barb). This is just so different, I absolutely love the LO and the B&W photo with just the red of Santa's suit picked out is great!

Have a look at her gallery on Daisytrail. She has some gorgeous pages.

"This photo is of my grandson, his first time seeing Santa. As you can see, he just wanted to get back into Grandma's arms!
At christmas the rural fire brigade dress up as Santa and go around the streets getting donations to help with the bad fires Australia has in the summer.

The red on the page is fire, green is Australia and the yellow is the sun.

Kit is by Miss Vivi and is called 'Funky Town'.

I am 57 years old and a mum of 2.  And sad to say now a mum of one.
I have a beautiful grandson that I scrap all the time as you can see.
I come from New Zealand, I moved to Australia in 1981, after 4 years in New guinea.

I 've been scrapping for 8 years now and love it, have come 2nd in Brisbane scrapbooking expo for my work. Also had 4 of my pages published in Scrapbooking Memories magazine.
I now do S4H from home, for people who have lost loved ones".

Thank you for sharing x

Sika Deer

This is the latest photo taken by my son Matt. I am so proud of his talent for photography and always try to scrap a page of his more eye catching pictures. This is a Sika deer and no, I wouldn't have known if I hadn't been told lol.

I've tried to keep the page looking natural and fresh. The photo had another deer behind this one which was blurry, so I've used masking to keep the main subject the focus of the page.

'In a Word' Challenge #2

This time our word is BAUBLES and was chosen by our previous winner, Helen. I am really glad she chose a Christmassy one!

So, the rules are simple. Scrap the word in your own way with images and kits of your choice. Then put a link to your page in the comments section. Or DT members, let me know when you upload your page and I'll grab it from the gallery.

The challenge will run until  Sunday 22nd December. The winner will then choose a word for the following challenge. Thank you for playing along :) x

Helen has very kindly provided us with an example page - which is beautiful and should give plenty of inspiration.

Our first entry this time is this fun page from Jenny (jennyjennyjenny).
 Love the idea of 'pick your own' baubles lol!

This gorgeous vintage page is by Sam (westie1)

Love these baubles by Rena (RMC) especially the cat one! :)
