oh this was layout I created for call over at Creatively yours and I loved doing this layout,so much fun and I have not done a layout for quite some time
I have been so busy altering things or making cards, This is a photo of my grandparents wedding Day in 1927 [Double click for a close-up]
The big flower is just from some of them cheap ones from the shop we all stick in vases but I took it to pieces {I always buy white] and it all had a good spray with Glimmer mist- coffee shop,vintage music and papers from my stash, lace/key/hatpin from my stash, plenty of tim holtz distress inks- old paper/vintage photo,]/black soot,buttons my own stash, trying to think of all bits and pieces I used on this lol!
Well it is pretty cold here and we are expecting a bit more than a bucket of snow to fall anytime over next few days, Oh I so do not want this white stuff, not bad if I`m stayiing in but I need to go out tomorrow and do not like the school run with my little guy if its slippy at all, the other week I`m surpirsed nobody broke there necks on the ice I know I had a fast racing heart after my near miss
a few time looking at the ground
Happy weekend everyone

oh I have been tagged

Well today I have no big plans at all few chores but seeing its my Birthday I plan on having a lazyish! day,no celebration at all seeing it has fallen on a Monday and the school run , maybe do something at the end of the week,When you get older it somewhat does not bother you about the lack of cards or presents lol! But I must post this late tag[Sorry Vicki

I have been tagged by fellow cropstop member and dear friend, Vicki . so I thought I would do it

Here are the rules:

1. Navigate to where you keep your pictures, select the 6th folder, and the 6th picture in that folder

2. Post the picture on your blog with an explanation about the picture.

3. Tag 6 others to do the same, and let them know they have been tagged!

right so I have this layout as the 6th of the 6th folder on my file,now this was a challenge laid down to use white space, so this was my idea of white space,the Clematis is one of the many I have in my garden and love this one its such a wonderful shade of burgundy then mellows down to this beautiful pink frilly inner and last year it had a fair few blooms on it,and looking forward to even more on it this year !
so my taggers to tag are :-



So I will be hopping over to these blogs to tell them this news lol!!!
