I thought I would update you on our next Scrapbook Saturday event called 'Have a Smashing Time Workshop' on Saturday 31st August 2013. The ladies attending the workshop will be creating with a Fancy Pants Brag Book that starts life like this:
With some self adhesive Fabric Paper (from my own stash), White and Black Lace Borders, Basically Bare chipboard Camera and Prima SIIC Arrows, I have created the front cover:
I wanted to create a Vintage style cover for 'My Journey 2013', which includes a record of my life (including some really special dates this year) starting from January until the end of December (will include Christmas).
Another view of the brag book. At least I have made a start and what better way than to start with the cover. There are 12 sections to the book (one section for each month of the year) and I intend to start with July as I have just returned from holiday and the memories are still vivid. I have lots of lovely memories to record this year .. husband's 60th Birthday in January, holiday to Malta, Family Christening, Granddaughter's 18th Birthday ..... plus loads more to record. Now I have made a start on the cover, I can start to plan out the journal for the remainder of the year and hopefully have quite a lot of it completed to show the ladies at Mad Scrappers to give them ideas for their brag books.
Starting a new project sometimes seems a bit daunting, especially as I am going back over 6 months to complete the first half of this year. Luckily, I have a record of what has happened here on this blog and Facebook, so it won't be difficult to remember.
I will show some updates, as and when I have them completed. Please leave a comment so that I know you have passed by this way. Thanks for stopping by today.
