Yeah it's raining!

Well it did rain for me here last weekend. … just what I hoped for… thus preventing that awful feeling of guilt and laziness which passes over me when I don’t go out into the garden but scrap instead.
I woke up to the rain and thankfully a glimmer of inspiration. As I am a slow scrapper I only created three 12x12’s over the weekend. I managed the DLO below and a single LO which have put on my ‘Glimpsing the Past’ blog. I find it hard to date the photo I used, of MIL’s mother. Any ideas? She died 1940 and would have been 40 in1933 so I think it may have been 1930ish but the blouse looks wrong as she wouldn’t have been in ‘up to the minute’ fashion and it doesn’t look like a late 20’s blouse to me. She lived in America but I feel that, as a fashion usually started in Europe it would appear a little later in the USA. Sorry for rambling but any feedback on date would be gratefully received.

I have been meaning to scrap these pics for ages. I followed the growth of this giant flower that burst forth from our tree last year. I have no idea what tree it is as I didn’t plant it but there are a lot of them flourishing in Fife even though they look exotic and in need of warmer climes.

Thanks for looking xx

Fab LO Ange, love the way you've journalled it, and I agree, very exotic! (No idea what it is, either!)

Stunning pages. I have no idea either what it is but very tropical looking.
