Good Evening Peeps
I will warn you now this is a picture heavy post so if you wish to go and make a cuppa before you start reading, I will not be offended in the slightest!
Today xxx (put in your own figure here) years ago, my lovely Hubby was born. And long before I met him he was involved in local Hospital Radio. Unfortunately due to working committments he is no longer involved but whilst he was involved he, and ultimately I, have had some very funny and memorable moments. So with this in mind I set about making Hubby a birthday present.
It all started when I first went to Cornwall on a Scrapbooking Retreat with Just Scrapbooking and I saw a layout which Linda had done using an LP. Little bell started dingelinelinging (is that a word? It is now). So one day I happened to be selling at a car boot sale and someone was selling LPs and coloured ones to boot. So I offered him £1 for a red LP. He refused. I went away. Later I passed the seller, he came down in price. I offered him £1. I went away. Then he came to me at the end of the day and asked me if I still wanted it and I offered him the same £1. He relented. Then he asked me why I wanted a red one. So I told him. His face was a picture and he told me it was a mint LP, never played and was worth more than £1. I politely told him that the LP was now mine, having paid him £1, and that I could now do whatever I chose to do with it!
So the LP sat in my craft room calling to me.
I have recently started taking my photos out of photograph albums as some of them are starting to deteriorate and moving them into a storage system which I bought HERE. However, all the photos connected with PYF Hospital Radio I stashed elsewhere. Until about 10 days ago. A little plan formulated in my head and hey presto, this is what has happened to those photographs and the LP....
If you want to skip to the end and leave me a comment so I know you have been to see me, please feel free to do so as I thought I might show you some close ups of my favourite bits.
Thanks for bearing with me (that is a little more than I can say for Blogger! I hope my little bit of craziness has inspired you to do something of your own. Please let me know as I would love to see what you come up with.
