Life in the Slow Lane: LSNED DAY 28

Thursday 29 September 2011


Today I learned that I was still as hooked on jigsaws, as I was when I was younger! Dad has developed a taste for doing jigsaws recently, and we borrowed one from one of my neighbours....there is constantly one or other of us sitting at the table!

My scrapping mojo has been working on all cylinders this week, as I managed another LO  last night, for a Quote Challenge over at SCRAPBOOK CHALLENGES and also for a Colour Challenge over at SCRAP FRIENDZY.

...and today it was weigh-in day! After gaining a pound last week (which I was actually quite pleased about, after 'the girls's' visit and my Barcelona trip!), I had lost two I'm back on track for having lost three stones by Christmas!

Just a reminder that this is STORYTELLING SUNDAY over at  SIAN'S BLOG....lots of interesting stories to read, from some lovely bloggers!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  1. That is a quote I love....and it's perfect for that layout.
    I must admit I'm not a fan of jigsaws....I just get frustrated with them!!

  2. What a pretty layout - love the soft colours - and congrats for getting back on track so fast with your diet!

  3. we do a lot of jigsaws, well done on the weight loss

  4. Great layout, I do love that quotation :) And congrats on the weight loss!

    I love jigsaws, to the extent that I have to be careful about starting one in case I stay up all night trying to finish it....!

  5. I absolutely love your layout. Gorgeous in every way.

  6. I love jigsaws and the family always has some on the go over winter.

    Great layout

  7. Lovely quote and layout. A big congrats on your weight too, so impressed with your willpower, I keep eating chocolate just lately.

  8. We have a jigsaw on the go at the moment, and getting Dad back into the swing of doing them again too :) this really is such a pretty layou, lovely and soft :)

    Well done on the weight lost

  9. My husband and daughter love jigsaws (at least that's an easy Christmas present every year!)

    Thanks for the shout out and I'm sorry I'm only getting to it now. We have had the worst internet connection I have ever experienced these past few days. Maybe all that thunder has something to do with it?

  10. I love jigsaws too but I only get to do them once a year on holiday! They are really sociable things that everyone can join in with. I love your layout too - one of your best I think. The placement is wonderful and its all really well balanced.


Thanks for leaving a comment....I love reading them all!
