A layout for mum


Mother's Day has been and gone in the UK, but it's always good to remember our mums. This is a digitally produced LO using a couple of photos taken Christmas 2012 when mum's care home had a Christmas party.

When I look at this now I think I might have been a bit too heavy-handed with the fading, but, hey ho, 'tis done now.

Tuesday throwdown 146: my mother, my friend
Little red wagon 184: all about mom

Instant photo


This week on PumpkinSpice there are lots of challenges for National Scrapbook Day. This is for the 'instant photo' challenge, using a Polaroid type frame - definitely bringing back memories of the past when I had a Polaroid camera and thought it was wonderful to see an 'instant' picture emerging ... before the days of wonderful digital imaging that is so easy now.

I've layered a picture of John on to a Polaroid frame, added the place and date that it was taken and then placed this on a background picture taken at the same place on the same day.
