Going Retro

I decided to have a go at a couple of Shimelle's challenges from her online crop weekend, I have been feeling a bit lost so thought some inspiration would help me along. I started with Shimelle's Let's go Retro challenge. After doing my Dad's book for Father's day I had one old photo left from when he went on holiday with his family in 1963 before I was even thought of lol. I was very tempted to use one of the photo's I have from sorting my Gramps' things which go back to the 1890's but that would have been naughty as I need to copy them all before we do anything with them.
The photo isn't the best but it truly reflects the time when photo's were an expensive commodity and you didn't take a couple to make sure you got a good shot and way before the digital age we enjoy now where we can take several shots and delete the ones where the subject is half out frame before we move on to our next shot :) I used Websters' Pages Ladies and Gents papers and alphas and some Jenni Bowlin tickets.


  1. Oh it's lovely, I love how you cut around the clocks

  2. ditto what Sandra said, nice use of the clock paper!
