Just an Ordinary Day

Hello - another week done and dusted and it has been another busy one.

I did manage to get three layouts completed last weekend though so was pleased with that.  They all took longer than they should have though - far too much procrastinating.  I finally got a photo of this one taken this morning as today is the deadline for the Dusty Attic September Sketch Challenge.  See the sketch here.

This photo has been floating around waiting for the right moment for some time now and when I found the gorgeous MME Lost and Found range at Scrapping Patch Spring Retreat I knew they were the ones for the photo.  The photo is of my Grandfather and his sister on a bicycle outing circa 1927.  In those days it was nothing for them to bike out to the river some 10 miles away for a picnic.  I love their baggage - the basket and leather bag.  Obviously they are holding the photographer's bike also.  Here is my take.
 I added a little bike trinket to the hidden tag where the journaling will go.

 The Title tag is also from the Lost and Found Collection.  The frame is a DA Garden Frame Set DA0606. 
Dusty Attic cogs glimmer misted with gold and a Websters Pages embroidered bird were added.
String and brads created the cris-crossed effect and a necklace happened to break that day so I recycled the chain to hold a little bicycle trinket and also used the chain in the top photo down the right side of the photo.

Thank you for visiting my blog - it is truly appreciated but I would love to know who is visiting so feel free to leave a comment.

Have a wonderful weekend whatever you may be doing.  My agenda includes mowing lots of lawns but that is good productive exercise so I don't mind.  Then hopefully some scrap room time.

Take care.  Until next time....

Dianne, I always read your blog with much interest, and admire your gorgeous work. I don't always leave a comment as our internet is rather dodgy and sometimes it can take ages for something to go through...and I give up then lol.

oh, this is such a lovely layout-- especially because it features my beloved Nana, Maud Garven- I'm Sonya Cullimore's sister, Lisa. hi! it's a photo I've never seen of Nana before, & it's absolutely delightful-- you've made my day. :)

Noticed the surname Garven! Diane does that mean you are related (I suppose by marriage?) to Andrea? Missed you yesterday but at least someone else (Becks) got to win the door prize!
Enjoy the holidays. We are waiting here for Rosie to get the chicken pox as Charlie had them last week, so that will make a boring holiday. Hope to get to AKL to see the RWC attractions next week, but chicken pox will decide that!
