I'm joining in with Shimelle's Blogging for Scrapbookers but, as usual, I am behind. I'm not letting this get me down though and I'm still basking in the glory of already using tabs and having ventured into the land of Google Reader! Ok so it was a quick venture and must have been long ago because I total forgot I'd ever sorted out my settings but, nonetheless, it was something that I knew about which is a great achievement for someone like me who's had an iPhone for over a year but still hasn't worked out how to put songs on it!
Anyhoo, that is how far I've got but I will catch up and even if I don't, due to this class, I have found hundreds of great blogs to read with great stories, people and ideas!
I've got a couple of layouts to share from this months Gotta Craft kit, I've done 4 layouts so far but I don't want to overload so here's a couple:
I love this picture of my friends, Clare and Allison. It was taken 20 years ago but I can still remember where we were, what we were doing, the songs that were playing and the laughs that we had. The Echo Park - For The Record papers were a perfect match to Clare's top which just goes to prove that all things do come back into fashion after a couple of decades!
I love this picture of Maddie, taken when we were on a Halloween weekend away in Stourbridge. Back then she still loved having her picture taken and wasn't prone to living in pyjamas!
It's a picture I've wanted to scrap for a while but there was one thing stopping me. Under the embellishment on the photo is a big sign reading "please do not let your dog foul the footpath". Who wants that on a layout? It's a sure sign that not much thought was given by the council concerned to the possibility that someone would want to scrapbook a photo of their child on the swing gate!
My tea break is over and I'm sure there are a few more chores to squeeze in before bedtime.
I hope you've all had a drop of sunshine to enjoy today!
