WOYWW & A new leaf!!!!

This is my first week Joining in with WOYWW! I know it's fun because my Mum and partner both play along but I was being a bad blogger so I decided to wait until blogging had time back in my routine before I started to play.

So here is what is on my Workdesk:

Ewwww hmmmmm, think this needs sorting out lol!!

I am planning to use this pile of stash to create 3 different layouts

I have also decided on my project for celebrating a year of WOYWW, that should be loads of fun.

I was actually excited to have done 2 whole layouts in the last month, although they are different, I actually like them both. So here they are:

So I gave up on the 30 days project but not because I didn't enjoy it, more because I could not decide on my fav. things. I have too many things I love! lol.

In my title it says a new leaf, well I have finally taken my life in hand and have a routine, my new leaf is a diet plan for my wedding in October (YAY!!!), looking after my diabetes (which I have not been!), spending quality time with Robbie and Kristofer, (2 of my gorgeous nephews, both of whom are placed with my partner and I currently)and of course spending some us time with vic as we don't get much of that lol. I am in a really good place in my life and I am truly happy, my only sadness is I have very little time to scrap, so that has also been added to my routine.

I am planning to teach at the crop that I co. run, this month, I am hoping to do a class about journalling, it was something I often had trouble with but now I enjoy all the different ways to add it to projects.

To finish up, here are some pictures of a few days of fun with the boys on my days off:

Leven Beach fun at the arcade and the bouncy castle:


A Day on the Links Market Rides


Family day out swimming with Lisa, Kevin, Jamie and Oscar, Clair and Daniel, Vicki, Myself,Chris,Robbie and Christopher, then we headed to the beach for a burger. What a fab fun day.



I could blog so much but I better make sure that I blog more often rather than a huge post once in while.

Happy Creating and blogging
Jay xx

I'm diabetic too and I know at times it gets a bore having to stick to a routine, but it is worth it in the long run. My Mom was diabetic also and its not nice when things go wrong

Love this post. Great projects-in-pipeline desk photos, ADORABLE Blair Drummond layout, and the pics of your kids are presh.

Tonje said...

Wow, your layouts are beautiful!! But then I saw all your cats and I realized that you have them all now, their not past and present cats, they are all here now, and I kept looking and looking at them. They are so cute/sweet/tough/lazy/bully-looking and I realize I have to press my hubby more, because I want more cats but he says its enough with the two I have. I'll show him all of yours! lol

Have a wonderfull weekend. Greetings from Norway

Thistleblue said...

Hiya! I'm finally getting round to visiting everyone else's blogs on WOYWW... where does the time go???? Anyhow I've had a wee wander through your blog and i adore your layouts! They are stunning and really jump off the page! I have the intention of scrapping... i've got photo's and general stuff i've collected that i'd love to sort out into a Layout but i don't seem to find the time... :-( I'm sure I will eventually! Looks like the boys had lots of fun at the shows too... :-)

Carmen said...

Oh I can so sympathise with the 'us' time. My OH and I had our first date night in 3 years last night, he took me to a concert I was dying to see. Afterwards he said it would be the last date night for another 3 years! LOL! Charming! Suffice to say - very different musical tastes :P And we ended up double dating with my sis and her gf which we weren't expecting either but it was fun. I have promised he can pick the next date.

Love your scrappy pages especially the first one,all that green is just gorgeous!
