Scrap Book Mad!!!!

Morning everyone......Well its freezing this morning but none of the promised snow yet.....I don't tend to bother with the weather forecasts any more.....I tend to stick to 'If you want to know what the weather's like....Look out of the window!!!'

Today I have yet another finished scrap book page to share...




As always this is a page that was designed and taught by the 'Oh So Talented' Polly at the class I attend on a Thursday evening at my local craft shop. I love these papers and the colours. 

The photo is of my grandparents taken at their home in Lancashire in 1965.....check out the haircuts and the fashion!!! 

I remember my Nan saying that before these photos were taken....(they had a bit of a photo shoot from what I gather) she went out and bought plastic Daffodils and Tulips to stick around the garden, her theory being that as the photos would be in black and white no-one would know the difference....

'Thats My Nan' xx

Thank you for stopping by.
