Wednesday 9 November 2011


It's Wednesday again, so that means it's WOYWW over on Julia's blog - if you don't know what I'm on about, pop over and find out and join in the fun (and noseyness - lol!).

My mum will be 90 on 29 November, so I need to get a move on and make sure I've done her card in plenty of time. But I also want to put together a scrapbook for her - this is long overdo - ages ago I bought a whole load of photos from mum in order to put together a book for her ... and she's still waiting for it!

I admit that I'm taking the cheat's route because time is ticking by so quickly and also this room and our bedroom are going to be decorated either next week or the week after, which will mean me moving some of my craft stuff and I won't be able to get to the rest for a few days.

So I bought an Anna Griffin Heritage scrapbook it from QVC - it has pages ready embellished to add photos to. But I've also got papers and 3D stickers that coordinate so that I can make other pages to add in.

All I need to do now is to get the photos out and start! I've just realised that it's now less than 3 weeks to mum's birthday - HELP!!!

This is an altered notebook made with an offcut of paper (freebie from a magazine) and some lovely Basic Grey chipboard embellishments that I've had for ages.
