A Shimelle-inspired day

You'll never guess what I did this morning? No, not work, which makes a change, I sat at my desk, feasted my eyes over the latest Scrapagogo kit and scrapped! I had the morning off due to working late every night so far this week and because an electrician was in to put spotlights in our bathroom (they look fab!), so I used one of Shimelle's LOs to help create this one using a picture of my mum and grandad in the late 50s.

It is the first heritage-style LO I've done and I'm really pleased with it even if it was a scraplift. I did alter it slightly and used different colours to reflect the theme.

I think I'll be doing more of these soon as I scanned, copied and printed a pile of photographs of my grandad throughout the decades and I'd like to have a few LOs or even an album to remember him by. And there are some lovely family photos among them too.

I also completed a LO this week using the gorgeous new Love Elsie papers, which finally arrived at work after a round trip of England thanks to Royal Mail! They are lovely and really easy to use. The photograph I used is even inspired by one of Elsie's in her 52 challenges book. I will post a picture later.

And this last LO I made after last Saturday's crop, just because I liked the shapes I cut out for it. I'm not sure if it works or not, but it will do - for now! Lol!

Right, need to eat, I've only had a sandwich all day! Back soon :o)

Just a flying visit!

This is just a quick hello as we have a busy day planned, and I'm already being nagged to come off the computer. We're visiting family and also taking Harry to a friend's birthday party, which will be fun.
I just wanted to upload my recent work though. The first LO is one I completed at yesterday's crop using an old black and white film picture of my husband at a music festival (aaaah, them were the days!). And the other is a scraplift from a LO in the April issue of the fab US magazine Scrapbook Trends.

I have more to post, so I'll be back to do that later :)

Got to fly, bye for now!
