sign of the time


Inspired to create a layout when I saw the simple yet fabulous  free digi template on Cathy Zielske’s blog

The embellishments are from the Designer Digitals Collaborative For Humanity Kit : Japan where ‘100% of proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross to aid in the help of Japan’.

The journaling reads

Love it when the clocks spring forward. The lighter evenings mean that I have my daily walk by the river and firth after dinner rather than earlier in the day.

I prefer a walk then because it serves as a good way to relax into the evening. Also there seem to be more birds on the water - mostly swans and ducks. And I love the light in the evening for photographs - so gentle and soft with interesting shadows.

Twice this week there have been spectacular sunsets behind the city which adds to the pleasure. The sky was an amazing colour and the skyline really stands out in silhouette.

I am half way to the firth by the time I see the western sky so the colour is always a surprise. As summer progresses I’ll be interested to see how the light changes on my after dinner stroll.

Has changing the clocks made any difference to your daily routine?

Beautiful kit and I love what yo did with it. If I scrapped digi, I'd definitely be tempted.

It hasn't really made a difference to my routine....but how I love the lighter evenings.
Wonderful layout.

I do like the lighter evenings - but oh, I do NOT like that night when the clocks change! (Or the process of changing the 50 million clocks around our house!) Your photo is gorgeous, and I love the layout :-)
