Apologies to my blog friends

due to some rather suggestive comments left by a sex site, it is with regret that I have had to put comment moderation back onto my blog. It is hoped that they can not then link to your blogs too. I am disgusted that Blogger allows them to get through to be honest. I have enough to do out at work all day without having to patrol my blog.
Anyhow, finally I have a photo of a layout I made about two weeks ago! It is a very old photo taken during a very difficult period of my life but I remember this as been one really nice day. We were all dresed for winter but it was gloriously hot. We were friends & step brothers & sisters back then.
I made it bright & cheerful even though that time of my life was miserable & dark. All the same the photo holds a memory that I have of sun, laughter & holidays. The girl at the very front was a friend I met up with each weekend when we stayed in our caravan. Photo taken around 1978/9.
Materials used from Studio Calico September 2009 kit Cotillion, with the odd few embellishments used from older kits. I thought this Basic Grey paper screamed 1970's. Names printed onto blue dymo tape.

Nasty, innapropriate comments do spoil things!!!!! Good to see you back though with a layout that obviously means so much to you. This is what photo's and scrapbooking are all about. I am getting into it much more recently. x

You've capture the era so perfectly Paula. What a shame it holds memories that werent happy ones. I think this is my favourite page of yours to date. All the little touches like the blue dynamo and the bottle top are spot on!

Lovely layout Paula. The burnt orange colour is gorgeous.

I understand about the comment moderation, Paula. What a pain though :( Thanks for letting us know it was happening.

Your layout is so bright and cheery - I love the B&W photo with it. Glad you have a good reason to remember that day as a bright spot in a dark time. I like that even better! And I like the LO!!

Hi again Paula, Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog about my project in Craft Stamper. Don't panic with your 'lack of inspiration'. I was just the same a couple of weeks ago, but am getting back into it now, just as you will. Just take a look in your beautiful gallery. That just shows how creative you are!!!!!!

Beautiful LO Paula. The background is very sunny and bright.
