Saturday Spotlight Wk 18

Welcome to The Saturday Spotlight!

This week's page is 'Ivy' by Susan56. I love the old photo and the way she has used muted colours, perfect for the photo.

This, to me, is what scrapbooking is all about. Preserving those special memories and remembering the important people in our lives. I also love the labelling. Beautiful page Susan x

The kits Susan used are, 'Dare to let it Hurt', 'Dare to Create Change' and 'Dare to Be The Real You' all by Angie Young.

'Cream & Sugar' digi-kit and A New Craft Room!

I need this kit!  I just love the colours and the embellishments - even though I don't actually scrap pages about cups of coffee lol. So really, I have no idea what I would use this kit for, but will think of something and still want it! Laurie Ann is such a talented designer.

Unfortunately, funds are low due to the installation of a brand new craft room in my house. How lucky am I? Can't quite believe it. Painting is finished and IKEA units are installed.  Just waiting for shelves to go up, a blind for the window and a radiator.  Have bought so many plastic boxes for storage and I'm busying myself sorting through my stash and organising it into the boxes. 
Weirdly, I am enjoying this almost as much as the actual crafting - is it just me that LOVES storage? So will be a week or so till I actually move in.

I've been doing a lot of traditional scrapping (paper and glue) lately. So it will be heaven to be able to work on a page without having to tidy everything away at night. I might even get brave enough to put some of my pages on here :/  Still loving my digi scrapping though :)
