WOYWW - Scrappy Catch Up

A combination of events conspired to keep my crafting time limited this past weekend.
So not much on my desk this week !

The weather on Saturday was bright & sunny so I got to spend a couple of hours tidying up in the garden. 

 Sunday being Mother's Day, we headed a couple of hours up the M4 to near Marlborough where we had arranged to meet up with Much Beloved's Mum, Sister and her family - this being sort of mid-way between our two homes !
We had a really delicious & convivial lunch !

So crafting this week was limited to working on some of the layouts of photos from my trip to Tokyo.

As the point of the trip was trying all the different food, I suppose I shouldn't have been so surprised that the layouts are pretty dominated by all sorts of meals, ingredients & foods !!

The layouts are started but need some of the bits & bobs of ephemera added to finsih them off.

Hope you all have a fun crafty week

  7. Great pages with loads of photos! Brilliant.
    Sorry I´m late. I had my new computer today and I have been fiddling about with that but now I have everything going. (I am typing this on my new keyboard, which is Spanish, so I am constantly looking for things that are in a different place). I still have to sort out the printer and some speakers, but the system works!
    Have a great week and thanks for visiting me earlier.

  8. Happy WOYWW. I am, as ever, totally in awe that you manage to have the energy to do so much travel. I struggle to get to Swansea and back nowadays! You must have a lot of completed scrapbooks now. I am still to start my first. One day! Ali x #59
