WOYWW 137

A flying visit from me this morning as I am being "a lady what lunches" with some VIP guests.


I'm preparing for a crop class tomorrow night and faffing about changing my mind as usual.  I've gone with some pictures from the summer (I'm hoping the cheery pics will rub off on me!) and I knew immediately which papers to go to but I also knew that I had completed a layout many moons ago about the same thing with the same papers.  When I looked at it (that's the page that's open in the album there) I realised it was from 2008 and so it didn't matter how similar it was.  However the layout itself will be quite different and I've decided to go with kraft card as the background (when in doubt, use kraft...).  Paula who runs the class, has done a single page but I think I will do a mirror image as a double as I have a few pics from that day that I want to use.  I love spending time with crafty friends and we always turn out something individual to ourselves and use styles and ideas that we wouldn't normally use.

Something else which is something I wouldn't normally do, is a Pass the Page.  I can't for the life of me remember how I got involved in this thing in the first place but there are about 10 of us revealing our layouts in a blog hop on 20th and I found out yesterday that there are going to be some prizes.  I'm looking forward to the reveal on this one as the subject is my friend's little miracle baby.  I just need to take a better picture of the layout but of course now I want to do that, the weather has turned from f-f-f-freezing but sunny and clear to drizzly, grey and dark.  Pah!

What's on your workdesk today?  Is it tidy or messy?  Whatever it is, let us have a look see and link up to the lovely Julia (who just may be wearing a flower in her hair today).

Bye for now

  1. I like the old layout, looking forward to seeing how the new one turns out. I came back from Scrap-a-mia and realised I'd scrapped a photo that I had done before and even managed to choose the same title! The pages looked different though.

  5. I think faffing has to be the every crafters favourite pastime!!! I'm great at it, would get a degree in it if they gave one!!
    Your LO in progress is looking good. It'll be interesting to see how different it is from the earlier one. I always think it's fascinating to see how your scrapping style has changed over the years.
    Happy WOYWW

  14. It will be fun to see what layout you select. I imagine it will be totally different even though you are using the same papers.

    Hope your lunch was nice!!

  15. Those papers are gorgeous - lovely vivid colours that will go well with the equally bright and colourful photos. Look forward to seeing the completed layout - I expect it will look completely different from the 2008 LO even with the same papers. Hope you have an enjoyable time at your crop tomorrow.

  24. Your crop class sounds like fun. I should really make more of an effort this year and actually sign up to assorted classes - try things out I've never done before or could use some inspiration with. Enjoy! x
