THANK YOU....

.....for all the Birthday wishes, both on here and on FB! 

I had a very nice day.....and had THREE renditions of 'Happy Birthday'- one at Keep Fit, one at the Drop In Centre and one at Line Dancing! Word gets around quickly about such things in a small community!

I came in at lunchtime, to discover that Kirsty had made a batch of Fairy Cakes which I forgot to photograph, but remembered before I ate the last one with a cup of coffee this afternoon...


...she DOES make exceedingly good cakes!

It was a beautifully sunny day, and we headed to the coast for lunch....and I forgot to take photos AGAIN!

That allowed me to be back in time to go Line Dancing last night...a very nice Birthday indeed!

I managed to get another layout finished over the weekend...it's not the one I was intending to do- the printer had run out of ink, so I couldn't get my pics printed off...but I found these ones that I had printed ages ago-and had forgotten to anything with- so came up with this:


...using this STARTING POINT from SHIMELLE.

scrapbooking starting points @ shimelle.com

I made another journalling card using MISS SMITH'S TUTORIAL:


.....and I am now off to re-read the first prompts from her new class TELLING TALES, before I fall too far behind!

Hope you are all having a good week!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx

  6. Gosh, that must give you all some anxious moments. I am admiring your determination to scrapbook and the fact you weren't put off by the lack of a printer or new photos!
