WOYWW - June 8th

Hello!! What a week - I've not stopped and I am exhausted - not feeling 100% at the moment - and not done any crafting since last Wednesday :-( On my desk/table tonight is a page I've completed for Sam's birthday album, a finished card and a pile of 12 x 12 papers! Can you see the brown box in the middle? Jack has to make a memory box for school - it has to contain 6 items of memorabilia from Romeo and Juliet - so far he has a mask from the ball, the invite from the ball and a letter to Juliet (he is Romeo) - so it is work in progress! Last week I treated myself to a new Cath Kidston bag (on the table next to the chair) - I love it -but can never find anything in it! I have also decided to go through my 12 x 12 papers and have a sort through - how do you store yours - by manufacturer/style/colours?? I would love to know.


This is the page for Sam's Birthday album - I have a template on my PC and I print a copy of the current birthday photos, record age, how we celebrated the birthday, cake and what presents were received - its a quick and simple LO and goes in an 8.5 x 11 album - both boys have an album each. Last night I was looking at Jack's album with him and he counted how many empty pages were in his album - there was enough to go up until he was 25 - he then told me he wasn't leaving home until he was at least 25!!!
Here is the completed card - I have used some old Heidi grace papers - they were perfect for this Sugar Nellie image, complete with Prima flowers, ribbon and sentiment is from LOTV.

As for my boys tonight - peacefully sleeping beside me!


Thanks for taking the time to look, and don't forget to pop over the WOYWW and have a look at what is on everyone's desk this week

Does the box need a little bottle of poison? And maybe the coat of arms of the Houses of Montague and Capulet? Ilove the LO - is that a page per birthday then, or are you interleaving it with other stuff? You sound too busy, no wonder you're a bit below par. Feel better soon.

What a lovely idea to do that birthday book. I bet neither of your two will leave home very early - you are making them feel so special and comfortable. Hope you take the time to get yourself back to full health soon.
