By the Cute and Girly mid-month reminder

Just popping in to remind everyone that you have 2 weeks left to enter the July challenge at By the Cute and Girly.  And the challenge is?  To create any project with the theme "A Day at...".   It could be a day at the races/funfair/beach...whatever you get up to on a day out!  See here for the rules and sample the DT's creations to get you going.  Great prizes  see below

A $20 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp

A £10 gift voucher from Joanna Sheen

And 5 digital images (your choice) from MayzyArt

 For my mid-month project I decided to scrap some old family photos that date from the 1940's (I think).  They were taken during a days haymaking on my Granny's farm in West Cork at  time when everything was done by hand. A few years later tractors and machinery took over.  No one bothered to note the date or who was in the photos but I recognise my Dad!  Its lovely to remember when summers really were sunny after the wet summer this year.


I used K & Co Ancesry paper and over stamped it with Hero Arts Wild Flower label and Inkadinkadoo's Meadow Flowers trying to give the effect of a hayfield.  Then the 3 photos were matted up and the bee and the jute ribbon added for a country feel.  Very fast and very easy.
That's all for today.  Hope everyone is enjoying the summer and maybe having a few days off work!

  4. Thanks for the comment on my blog hun. I know it's stupid to let people like that bother me, but it's sooo annoying to wake up everyday to stupid comments, especially when they are bringing my kids into it (I didn't write about those comments as my kids sometimes read my blog). So far since posting my "rant" today, I've had no comments from her....hopefully that's the last of her!
    Love the old photos. It's great that you have photos from so long ago. I lost all my photos in the fire so don't have any, even of my kids when they were babies :( Never mind, just means I need to get camera happy so I have lots of them from now onwards:)
    Oh and love the paper you used and spotted the cute little bee too, those little bee's are so cute. Think I still have one or two of them :)
    Hugs Lora xx
