Joy from 27 Lingwell Road

The fabulous & amazing thing with scrapping is how some LO's just 'fall into place' & sometimes from something quite insignificant. 

I saw the February challenge at 'White with 1' & knew what photo I had to scrap with the criteria this month.  White + brown + vintage .  Then when I was ready to work on my page I picked up my new Crate Paper Restoration Collection chipboard pieces, & there was a gorgeous little number 27!    I couldn't believe it......this is my dear mum's house number where she grew up.  And so it just grew from there.

Here is a close-up of some detail taken while I was still adding my extra bits of ephemera. I used an original photo of my mum taken in 1937, as it has been scanned & I would prefer it on a page than sitting in my photo box.

This is my lovely big boy cat Bobby helping me take some photos...

Take care lovely gals,
