Spring swap parcel posted1

well, just a very quick sneak peek of my Spring Swap parcel that I sent off yesterday.....

do these look like pretty spring flowers??

I don't really see myself as a scrapbooker, but in November last year I saw this idea on this blog - http://aliedwards.typepad.com, and I just couldn't resist, it just seemed like such a fun idea... for very little effort (but at a very busy time of year)

so... I put together an album, and started collecting the right kind of photos that I wanted to display in this album...

and hey presto!


the idea is to journal and add photos about the daily activities that lead up to Christmas. I really enjoyed putting this together, and it a really great coffee table conversation piece. Not to mention a lasting Christmas decoration....

Still a little bit to do to finish it off, like the journalling on this page, but you can find out more about it here... and here....

and so a very silent night ending!

have fun....

Hi Shiree,
Love the sneak peek, can't wait to see it.
Your views of your new home are gorgeous. I would want to move, too. Beautiful pictures.
I haven't taken up scrap booking, I just couldn't do another hobby. Seeing your album put together makes me want to start.
Keep Stitchen'
