This past Sunday - as the 63rd consecutive day of rain did it's worst outside - I had a mad urge to gather up photos & mementoes I had abandoned after printing them out 9 YEARS AGO and scrap them !
Where did that come from ?
The rain must be driving us all batty !
Anyway in 2007 my sister turned 40 and I took her on a surprise weekend to Barcelona with our Mum & my sister's own sister in law.
She didn't know we were going abroad until we got the airport as I had smuggled her passport out of her house !
Anyway we had a fabulous weekend jam-packed with sightseeing, great food and invented a new catchphrase - "Drink girls ? Mines a Cava !"
At the time we got back, I was in temporary digs having sold one house but not found another & in the turmoil I lost the original photos and only had some printed out on ordinary paper - so never really got around to scrapping them.
Last week I found the Gaudi themed book I had bought on our trip, the mementoes & just sort of plunged in !
The quality of the photos isn't great - but the memories were precious & so enjoyable to revisit what fun we had !
Mind you it was a bit of a shock how young we all look !!
As I mentioned last week I am also doing the Wanderlust mixed media course - I "lifted" the ticket they emailed us as our confirmation of payment on the course and used it here on my title page.
The first journal page is on the theme what word describes you right now - my mood is "open" - open to new experiences & opportunities - so that's the theme for my page.
I also did a quick page of this weeks Journal 52 - well it never did stop raining !
The challenge this week was "What are you saying "yes" to right now".
I needed all these bright colours to banish the rain-soaked blues !
Have a great crafty week !
