a card for mojo monday 271

I will have to not be so impatient and take more control of my photography.
A card I made for my sister using Mojo Monday sketch  271.

what is my address

scrapbook boutique colour challenge Dec.

Well not real good photography , but you get the idea. I hope. I just put it together using a lot of thoughts racing through my head and had to ease up a bit I cannot seem to get all in and still get it looking right. The lager pic is just printed off on paper I had to touch it up a little as my printer is almost out of ink it tells me. Dear old Santa up in the corner is keeping his eye on "THE TEAM" making sure they're doing the job right.

A bit of a rush job here, end of the month of Nov. cannot believe it.
This is another layout of my sister Lu & mum. this taken  was Oct. 8th.2012. Mum's birthday.

purple pumpkin nov.sketch challenge

Purple Pumpkin Nov. Sketch ...I've used acouple of purple pumpkin embellishments on this layout.
                                              Taken back in the days of "Spiral Perms" a pic of me and our eldest granddaughter. [who is now 23yyrs.] she a resl cutie. I have written around the page. The reason for the "Sad Face" is because she was not feeling well , she had a cold coming on and was a bit feverish.

buttons layout

DSCF1296 by elainec4
DSCF1296, a photo by elainec4 on Flickr. I had a brain wave and decided to do another layout with buttons.
over the years I've collected buttons, odd ones ,some off worn out clothes and some because they were pretty or just because. My grand mothers and my mother did well as zips and shoe laces. "One never knew when they would be needed"..I have fuzzed up the photo to perhaps give it characture i don't really know why , me just amusing myself.

my2angels challenge black,white & one

DSCF1264 by elainec4
DSCF1264, a photo by elainec4 on Flickr.
This layout Black,white &one took me an age to work out. One would not think how challengeing it can be.
the white flowers are a different white and to try and work out what other colour I could use I was a bit lost. .probably because I couldn't find what I was looking for,  that happens a lot, when I get creative  everything is all over the place. I may just try & do some other layouts "Black, White & One other colour" to get it just right.This photo is of my Grandmother & Uncle Harold . Lokks like it was taken by a street photgrapher.
I think maybe 1940 a few days before my Uncle left for service overseas....
