Heritage page

Good sunny Saturday morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs

I went out last night on my usual Friday night session with crafting friends and halfway there the heavens opened and the winscreen wipers could hardly cope!!! Thank goodness it only lasted for half an hour or so!!!!!

Before that, I went and bought myself a new camera! My big Nikon DSLR with the large lens on was getting to heavy for me to carry around, so I chose a Fujifilm bridge camera and what a bargain it was with £100 off. Had I have bought it last week I when I was first looking,  I would have paid that much more!!! I am hoping to get out on Sunday and play :o)

Anyhow, I am waffling so I will get on with it. Here is my offering for today, it is so long since I did a heritage page.

I wanted to keep it simple, I love these photographs of my Paternal Grandparents.
I printed them onto Kodak semigloss photopaper Then cut with Spellbinders dies.
Backing sheet is 12x12 from Sassafrasslass and it has been in my stash for many years. I haven't bought any papers for well more than 5 years!
Of course, I had to use the Memory Box Chloe Stem to fit in with the paper design.
Brown card is pearlised from stash, I think it was from PDA a long time ago. I found a box of cream 120 gsm paper in stash and used it for the journalling, cutting them out with  Die-namics fishtail dies. 
I promise you the text is clearer IRL than it is here. I used Vivaldi font :o)
