Tag and Scrapbook page

Hi All. Nice that September has started off bright and sunny here on The NE UK Coast. I am half watching the adult seagulls teaching the baby ones to fly. They are using a roof opposite my window as a nursery and all day long different babies arrive to be taught--what a noise they all make. It is fun to see that they do have different characters and some make the trip to the harbour quite quickly while others don't seem to want to leave the roof at all. They nest on an industrial estate a short way from here so how they get to the roof opposite I haven't a clue-maybe short hops.

At Go Tag Thursday the theme is Hats. I always think Hats is a fun theme with so many different kinds to choose.

The picture is from a PSP tutorial I wrote way back on 2005 and I have blinged it up a bit with jewels and sparkly tape.

Now to Digitally Sweet Challenges for their theme and that is to use
 Lozzy's Digi Paper Designs to make a scrapbook page. I just won some beautiful Luna designs at Digitally Sweet so a bit thank you to them for choosing my work. 

This is my grandmother when she was 18 and I have chosen three of Lozzy's free papers. They can be found here at
A Bit More Time to Craft that is Lozzy's Challenge blog so I will be entering this piece there as well. I am hoping I got that all right as I have never entered there before.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and a nice holiday weekend for those in the US. I am looking forward to seeing Andy Murray playing in New York this afternoon.

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Yes, it is a bit of a mystery how baby birds get from A to B when they don't appear to be able to fly properly and I'd think the bigger the bird the more difficult it must be.
    Love your tag Chrissie with your blingy hat, although narrow doors might be a bit of problem :)
    Beautiful scrap page and wonderful photo of your Grandma, they were so elegant in those days. (good luck with the challenge too)
    Have a great weekend.... Gill xx

  2. Now that's a hat that will take courage to wear on a windy day, its a fabulous tag Chrissie. Its a lovely photo of your Grandma and wonderful page for scrapbook.
    I can imagine to sight and sound of the gulls, I think I would have been watching them as well.
    Have a good weekend

  3. That is a marvelous page for your gorgeous grandmother. I was fascinated by your story about the seagulls teaching the young ones to fly. Blessings, my friend!

  4. Since I'm not a hat person, I had to laugh at Yvonne's mention about wearing it on a windy day.

    I never get tired of seeing digital, and I am always surprised at how true to life digital often looks when it's incorporated into a scrapbook page. Your choices for this piece turned out wonderful.

    Enjoyed the baby gull story. Children! Human, animal, or avian, they are all unique and are often a puzzle and a mystery to be solved.

  5. Both designs are beautiful, the tag is fun and your digital artwork is amazing. Take care xxx

  6. Lovely tag and page with your grandma, now I know what those papers were for! It is always great watching the little ones learning to fly, eat etc. Have BIG fun watching tennis, I just got home from my outing and need to get my big feet up! Hugs, Valerie

  7. A great tag Chrissie, love the hat. It's a gorgeous photo of your Grandmother and a lovely layout using those papers.
    As for the seagulls - don't like them at all.
    Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  12. I do love her hat! Fantastic digital makes Chrissie, the Vintage photo is so precious it deserved to be framed. Such a shame I have hardly any pictures of my grand parents when they were young.

  13. Oh! how I wish hats were back in fashion, I would wear one everyday, love them and your tag shows how beautiful they look, love the bling on it.

    Your scrapbook page is so beautiful, what an beautiful photo of your Grandmother, I don't have many, I will have to search them out.
