The West Country, England

We've been looking at our photos taken on our last visit to England and it's getting me a bit homesick. When we do our month long visit, we love to visit one of the West counties; Devon or Cornwall, then on to Wales for a week, up to the Lake District and down again to London for a visit with my family. Devon has many tourist spots along the coast and it's a nice visit after all the children go back to school and free of all the crowds. A raincoat and rain hat are always on hand, umbrellas are cumbersome and too easily left behind as we have our Cornish Pasty and chips along with our ale in one of the pubs for lunch.

If we have a large breakfast and skip lunch, a cream tea at one of the tiny tea shops or Patisserie is a must for later in the afternoon. In England supper extends to midnight in some areas.

Freebie Shabby Chic papers (Devon Cottage)

Our grt granddaughter, Brooke

Granddaughter, Ally


Our daughter and grand daughter.

I've been re-visiting photos of our summer visits to Devon, England and am working on some shabby chic worn cottage-looking papers. These are a few of them and I hope to get the rest by next week. I'll also be adding a few elements (star spray, butterfly etc.) and some clipping masks.
The Word Quotes in the 2 lower L/O's are from PhotographyWordArt by Ali Edwards at Designer
The Disney Land L/O is much paler than in Photoshop. I'll check a printed version and may have to modify it.
I'm using some word art (smile) "mod-quotes2" by Fei-fei's Stuff at and in the L/O with 3 pictures "You" is from taylormade-signature3-alpha also at This last one was a lift and I have to go search who's it was lifted from.

Sorry, the Digital Paper Freebies are no longer available.
