My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

A Weekend to Reflect

blogged by me domestic goddess On 11/19/2006 10:10:00 PM
I have had the weekend to myself. The girls have been at Nana's and Peter was on a Team Building weekend in Norfolk, leaving me to a weekend of reflection. I cried buckets, sorted dads belongings and scrapped a plenty. It really wasn't too bad you know.

I cleaned my dad's pocket watch/clock up that I had given him for his 70th and this will now have pride of place on my bedside table. I also had a magazine assignment to do and I chose to dedicate my page to dad. He would have been so chuffed to be gracing the pages of a glossy magazine, lol!!

Another layout was for the Pencil Lines sketch which is now live. I loved this weeks sketch by my favourite sketch artist Becky Fleck. Pop on over to see what the DT did this week and our talented guest DT Lu Braxton.
I also completed a couple of DT projects as well for Zsiage. So all in all a very productive weekend.

Karen is arriving form Newcastle tomorrow and I cannot wait. I need a big hug and some girly time out, and she is a scrapper so what more could I ask for!!
I picked the girls up this afternoon and stayed at Nana's for a good English Sunday dinner of homemade mince pie, roasties and lots of scrummy veg and gravy!. The girls made sweet mince pies and jam tarts for afters. How spoilt am I?! We then went for a lovely walk down by the river

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Finally, if you have a spare few pennies please see my post below about the MS Xmas Star appeal that I am doing to raise money for MS. Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to pop by my fundraising page and donate. Every penny helps as they say. I will be posting out starts in the next day or two
Big Hugs to you all

    Glad you managed to get your Dad's things sorted - albeit painful, suppose it's all part of the heal process. Hope you have a great week - lovely LO of your youngest :) xx

    funny thing- I bought my Pa a pocket watch, and when he died I let the watch stop, and it also lives on my bedside table. It is a real comfort -x-
