WOYWW 413 - scrapbooking starts

Happy Wednesday to you all.  It is sunny in Pembrokeshire this morning, but chilly.  If you would like to join in with WOYWW today, go to Julia's Stamping Ground for more details.

It is fairly early for me (I really struggle with mornings now), so haven't actually started any crafting yet - but I have got out of the cupboard the scrapbook I bought years ago, and have the memorabilia from a recent cycling event that hubby did ready to create my very first spread!  I have done some digital scrapbooking, but this is the first time that I will be venturing into 'the dark art'!  

I will blog about the process and results (two other blog posts to come this week - about HelloFresh and my experience of using CBD so far).

I have also laid out the postcards I have received so far from the Spring Postcard Swap I took part in.  All so different and amazing.

I was planning a trip into town today with my trusty shopping trolley (Xmas pressie from hubby), but just seen that one of our local golf clubs is starting a series of free golf lessons this evening at 6 pm.  I cannot drive out twice (only just started driving again on Saturday), so will postpone the shopping to Friday.

A nice short post today.

  5. Morning Ali. Have fun with that layout - enjoy. I reckon that's the reason for doing these things!!! Hope you manage to get out and about a little more now the weather is perking up a bit.
    Take care. God bless.

  7. Postcards are such fun! Have fun with the scrapbooking. I like doing the 'real life' one, but digital escapes me.

    Happy WOYWW

  8. Bon Courage entering the dark art of scrap booking - methinks it will be some time before any of us see you again ( it is all consuming) mwah h aha ha dxxx #29

  9. Nice to hear you are driving again - nothing like being not able to drive, that little bit of freedom taken away. I experienced that when I fell on my shoulder a few years ago - about 6 months with no driving. Good luck with the golf lessons! I wish I liked golf, it would certainly get me outside! Your postcards look great - how nice to get something other than junk mail in the post! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #32

  10. Have fun with the "dark art". You will love it when you get going, there's nothing better than actual photos are real stuff to mess about with.
    Enjoy your golf.

  11. Postcards are so much fun to play with! I hope you'll have loads of fun using yours. Scrapbooking has never been my forte - I envy those who can take that blank square page and make it not only memorable but artistic. Have fun!

  12. Good luck with your driving - I stopped years ago, hate it! is a pain sometimes having to rely on public transport or other people though! enjoy your scrapbooking adventure! Helen #1

  13. It's been cold here too today. Enjoy your scrapbook, hope to see the results. Happy crafty woyww, Angela x14x

  14. Ooh how exciting! Welcome to the world of real life'll never look back Elaine no. 7

  17. Have FUN creating that first page! Great memorabilia to use - it always helps tell the story, I think!

    Thanks for stopping by this week! (Yes, it would be great if you were close enough to attend one of my classes.) WOYWW #44 Melissa

  18. Hello Ali, hope your had a nice lesson in golf and having fun scrapping.
    Thanks for your visit to my desk and yes I have a page on my blog where you can find all details about the cards and how to order ( and this weekend I will be looking into opêning an etsy shop. Vicky

  19. Golfing or shopping? Now that is a decision that has to have careful thinking. With me it would be shopping - but then I don't golf. Enjoy!
    Hugs, Neet xx (thanks for visiting me earlier - sorry I am late) xx
