WOYWW 25/8

Now this post is scheduled for just after 7am tomorrow, but the last time I tried to alter the post time, it didn't work, so no idea when this will go on.

I received another wonderful parcel from the Artistic Stamper. If you order from them you are given a little card, collect 5 and get 20% off your next order. This is just what I did and managed to save a packet on my local prices for this absolutely amazing Sir Tim paper stacks.

 So these have taken centre stage on my workdesk and I have lavished them with all the attention I can muster.

The beautiful Vintage Shabby papers - the blues and pinks - will form the basis of my Xmas cards this year because most of them just lend themselves to that season. But, before I can make anything with these adorable, touchy, feely papers, I just had to let the first project be for my Toby's album. The Retro Grunge had designs to them which suited one of Toby's photos so I thought it right that I started there.


I think the little monkey would have approved.

Well, Julia has certainly given me a lot of pleasure with these Wednesday WOYWWs. Long may they continue despite not being able to get round everyone. I did however, manage over 80 last week!! Wonder whether I can beat that, I'll try.

Gorgeous Toby.....I mean layout...well both! It's a scrumptious picture of him though, he looks as if he is made from velvet. Hope you two are feeling better now after being laid low and in the wars one way and another, and so pleased to read your good news too! Heather was thrilled with her birthday treats...wink wink! See you in a few weeks! Lindsay x x x

I am NOT a scrapbooker, and I fell deeply in love with this really elegant spread. Although it came off as a "simple" spread, on closer examination, I saw how much you put into it. I'm blown away by the design, too. I agree that Toby would have approved. I am sure you miss him very much, and this album will be a special tribute.
