Five Favourites Finished

May was a lovely month for scrapping and I really enjoyed working on my five favourite photos.  Here are the layouts I came up with:

I think every month is bound to include a photo of my boy and I really love this one of him playing in the garden. The papers I used on this page were so ancient you could almost see through them, not like the papers of today that are lovely and thick :)
This is me with my walking friend Jo.  We go walking almost every Tuesday and she definitely makes pounding those miles easier!  She is so easy to talk to, I don't think there is a subject we haven't covered on our walk, and before we know it we've walked 5 miles and we're home.
I went with Sandra to the Stitch, Sewing and Hobbycraft show at Excel in London and we had a fantastic day.  As soon as I found this sheet of paper I knew which way the layout was heading :)
Maddie has never liked any of the blankets I've crocheted, she always says they feel and smell funny!  She soon changed her mind when she found out I was making one just for her and complained all the time that she was cold because I was taking too long to finish it!
I went to a quiz night in May and as soon as we walked in to the room my friend Sarah went to check out the raffle prizes.  The cut glass decanter really caught her eye and she told her mum, Jay, that if she won the raffle then she would get the decanter for her.  Well, the first ticket pulled out of the draw was Sarah's and she almost ran up to choose her prize.  Once the decanter had been wrapped she presented it to Jay.  We thought it was hilarious because Jay loves antiques and used to have her own antique shop yet here she was being given a bit of old tat :) We spent the rest of the evening telling her she had to look after her new heirloom :)
Now it's time for me to narrow down my five favourite photos from May and get them scrapped.

Thanks for stopping by
Jo xx

What a lovely month remembered with paper and pretties. I really had to smile at the story of the last one - new heirloom, indeed!!
