Snapshots of life

Carrying on from my last post, I am glad and relieved that Lilly does not have Swine Flu!! Phew... We made cornflake cakes and did some scrapbooking to celebrate!

This is a layout I was asked to do for an upcoming issue of The Scrapbook Magazine. It has been an absolute age since I have done anything for UK magazines, it made a nice change. UK mags get alot of criticism, and I am amongst those as well, I will put my hands up. But after giving it some thought, they are not doing anything wrong, they are just not aimed at the intermediate scrapper. We need a magazine that does have us as their target audience. Would you though buy that magazine? There is so much available online these days its a hard one to call. I am a book lover and would probably prefer to spend my hard earned cash on a book every couple of months on a subject that interests me.

At the moment I am subscribed to Scrapbook Trends. I love the handy size and the photography. I am not bothered by pages of text, I just need to be inspired by pretty pictures at the moment. So what are your thoughts on scrapbook magazines? I would love to hear.

I managed to get up to date with my A Snapshot of my Life album. My photos are pretty naff but you get the idea. I am keeping my layouts pretty simple and uniformed, mainly due to the size I have chosen to work on. How are you getting on with your albums? Do send me links.

And finally, a quick pic of the lettuce we picked yesterday. We are getting a good size crop each week. Enough for our needs.

Last night we picked our carrots, which will be finding their way into a Shepherds Pie tonight!!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, they are really appreciated.
