I've been seeing a lot of posts on Facebook recently where people are sharing their 5 favourite photos and then nominating friends to do the same. I haven't been nominated....yet, but it has got me thinking.
I've spent most of my time working on my Project Life albums and I'm really missing 12 x 12 scrapping. I have this weekend free so I thought I'd have a look through my phone (how lucky are we that we can carry around thousands of photos all the time?!) and pick 5 of my favourite photos.
I'm going to print these photos off (how unlucky are we that we can carry around thousands of photos that never see the light of day?!) and I'm going to scrap them.
This is a bit of a "soft opening" for a challenge I'm going to set myself for next year. I thought I'd see how I get on now and then do something monthly next year.
Something like printing my 5 favourite photos from the previous month on the first of the month.
And then sharing the layouts I've made from the photos at the end of the month.
If I keep it up then by the end of the year I'll have 60 layouts of all of my favourite photos from the year, photos that, at the moment, remain locked in my phone. I might however end up with a load of my favourite photos printed and trapped in a box, we'll see how I go :)
Maybe you'll be inspired to join in and get motivated to print those photos and get them scrapped!
Time is tight but I'm hoping to share 5 layouts of these 5 favourite photos of mine before my Christmas tree goes up on the 1st of December :)
Week forty five was a busy one, here are the highlights:
The weather changed and the temperature dropped, it was very wet!
My hair was finally long enough for me to wear it up:
I had the first of many red cups, this was eggnog latte and it was gorgeous!
On bonfire night we don't go to a firework display (Maddie doesn't like them), we stay home and watch this:
On Thursday we had the day off work and went to London, Maddie called this our jazz feet shot :)
We had a quick stop at Pudding Lane because I've been watching the BBC dramatisation of the Great Fire of London.
Then we went to see the poppies, a very emotional experience.
And I'm so pleased I made the effort.
We spotted a Paddington Bear at London Bridge Station and I'm hoping to go back and find the rest of them :) I think there are about 50 hidden around London.
That evening I was so proud to be voted Miss Slinky by my slimming group:
And I still had dirty pudding!
Friday evening saw me at bingo, I haven't been for such a long time. No winnings but lots of fun :)
I went to a crop on Saturday with a lovely group of ladies and got some more Project Life done. I'm currently 6 weeks behind but considering I was over 20 weeks behind in October I think I'm doing well.
I was given a cutting from a very special Money Tree and it brought me luck, I won £25 on the lottery that night!
On Sunday I felt really poorly, I still don't feel right now, so I had a Christmas PJ day, blog read and watched Elf, it was great medicine :)
I did manage to get myself off of the sofa so that I could play with Alfie and his new ball and the fresh air did help.
I think and hope that this week will be a bit quieter around here and I can get some more work done on my homemade Christmas presents.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by
