Good post

I really liked the postman yesterday - I always like him,but he bought something rather nice- all the way from across the pond.My first ever 'pass the book' book- and it looks like a cracker.

Thank you Deb,it arrived here safe and sound.I shall enjoy trying out some examples in here and have already picked a couple out - watch this space
This week has flown by,back to the dismal rain rain and more rain. Going over to Dad's house this evening I was shocked to see the field that only two weeks ago had sheep and lambs in was now like a lake - and the field the other side was also sporting ducks! weird, in all my years - I've never seen that-AND there is still a hosepipe ban here.
Last night -i sat there in my craft room surrounded by bits and pieces of paper and stuff - all that had been used on other layouts- couldn't decide what to use- there were bits of one and bits of another. Eventually I got them all together on a page. I was in a bit of a fiddle and faff mood where I took about three hours to do something that would normally take about half an hour - anyone else ever get those moods? Sometimes you just steam in - know exactly what you want to do and sometimes totally the opposite? Anyway I made a page with one old photo and one relatively new one,both photos of middle son that i like.
Right- time for bed now - nice long weekend ahead too.Enjoy your weekend whatever you are up to.

Most of my LO's are like that....all fiddle & faff!! It takes me ages to commit anything to glue!! I love this LO of your middle son...great photo's & it's all so cohesive, you'd never know you'd used up bits of 'this & that'!! :D

I'm so glad a Pass The Book has reached you Denise - you enjoy! (..and whenever you've finished, would you send it back my way then? Hard to believe, but it's been travelling for a year now. Keep it as long as you like though, get the good of it!)

Lovely spending the day with you today and I can't wait to see what loveliness you create with that book.

Sandie said...

That's a great page of your middle son,Denise. Enjoy the Pass the Book.

Yes, it was lovely to meet you too Denise. I had a great day. Have enjoyed taking a look at your blog. It's funny how you've also mentioned something similiar to me - I can stare at paper for ages sometimes! Great blog & love you scrapbook layouts. Didn't know about the Stoke by Nayland weekend - only down the road from me! Thanks for keeping me company today. Sx

Hi Denise thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such kind comments. I love your scrapbook pages. I hate to admit it but I gathered tickets, leaflets photos for years, enabling me to make a scrapbook for my son's 21st birthday.........needless to say he is now 26 and I have not even started. I think most of us are like that !!!! or is it just a few of us. I am sure that I will get it done !!! Anyway thanks for sharing and I am now your newest follower. Take care. Annie :)

I usually fall into the the three hours and rarely the 30 minute category. the only time I seem to be a speedy scrapper is when i go to a crop.

I don't think iveever one a layout in 30 minutes ... Some have even taken me days, like the one on my craft desk at the moment. Still, this one was well worth it
