Life in the Slow Lane: FIVE FAVOURITES

Tuesday 6 January 2015


As I was catching up with some blog reading yesterday, I came across THIS post by JO...and thought it might just be the thing to get me back to scrapping. I have really missed it this last year . I started out with great intentions for Project Life but just didn't get past April :<( I may try to finish it but no  promises!)....and apart from participating in FIONA'S FRIENDSHIP QUILT project life got in the way of any other crafting!

So THIS YEAR......I am going to try this: posting five favourite photos from the previous month, with the hope of getting them scrapped by the end of the current one. I am hoping it will be enough to get me back into the swing of things again and I am grateful to Jo for coming up with the idea.

Without further ado, here are my five favourite photos for December:

Dad waiting to get on the plane to come to Spain

Mum, dad and my 'little old lady' carol-singing

Kirsty in her new Unicorn onesie

The Christmas Day crowd

A New Year's Eve selfie

Now I just have to get them scrapped...though first I will have to buy some ink cartridges for the printer!

Thanks again for the inspiration Jo!

Tanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
