JFF - Sporty Man


This is my entry for this weeks
Just For Fun which is Sporty Man.

I have chosen this photo from my vintage collection
which is believed is possibly my Grandfather James Wilson
when he was a young lad aprox 16 yrs of age.

The picture is one of a set that were found hidden away in
a family garage that once belonged to my Great Grandfather.

We found a box of glass slides ( glass negatives)
all of which were in perfect condition . I took them to a local
specialist who was able to develop them for me.




We do know that my Grandfather enjoyed a game of football
as a young lad , so im hoping this is him.
I added some rubber stamped footballs , and a footballer
and a quote to complete the layout.
I didnt add journaling as I cant be sure that it is in fact him, 
but I have used a white gel pen to state that down the side of the layout. 

Many thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment
its much appriciated .
Hope you all have a lovely weekend .

That's brill Jaqi - what a lovely LO you have made for that photograph. I do hope it is your grandfather.
I am surprised you managed to find something to fit in with the theme - you must have a wealth of photos. Keep them coming.
