Today I Will..

Aah, we've birthday partied, Easter lunched, picnicked, sat in the sun. Finally, finally, everyone is back at work, school, wherever they go when they aren't here asking me for something.

So that means today I might have time to will:

*Finish up a couple of layouts for Sandra at Gotta Craft. This month's kit is so pretty I'd love to give you a little sneak. Mmm, maybe she wouldn't mind too much. After all, you can find out more about it here


*Have a go at Alexa's wonderful digital template (with free downloadable instructions!). Dare I digi, do you think?

*Really get stuck into finding a flat for my brother. He's on sabbatical from the end of the month and he's coming home to write a book. Hurrah! The pressure is on for me to find him a great place, with me being in the business and all.

*Order more albums. I keep finding overflow piles of layouts whenever I tidy up. I like turning up an old page I haven't seen in a while though. Like this one:


*And OF COURSE thank every one of you who wrote a story for Storytelling Sunday. AND everyone who hopped around reading and commenting. We had a record number of entries this month (and there is still time - the linky is open all week). Thank you all for joining in with such enthusiasm. You make an old blogger very happy ♥

Your post today just shows the power of routine. Sometimes there's nothing better than simply putting one foot in front. Sounds like a wonderful day to me!

Amanda said...

Not so old surely ;)

I'm back to the routine today :( I'm trying to get enthusiastic - honest.

thanks for the reminder about albums. I bought a pile of them from What! last year and I have only three left. I have just liberated a pile of old photographs from a long forgotten box so I have pages and pages to make and soon I'll have no where to put them! and with the Family Reunion at the beginning of June I have to have the albums ready to show off.

Cheryl said...

LOVE your farmyard LO. kraft and red, but not any old red - red gingham! yeah! x

Marcie said...

Am late here..but am loving your story-telling Sunday. Will definitely be joining in!!!

Cheri said...

How cool is it that you have so many layouts done you keep finding more that haven't made it to an album?

jennifer said...

I just found a pile of layouts yesterday that won't fit into my albums, I definitely need a couple more!
Great colours on the farm page, I {heart} kraft! x

S said...

Sounds like you have a wonderful day ahead of you. I too need to order more albums - isn't that the best feeling in the world, where you've scrapped ahead of your capacity. And I'm pacing myself and enjoying the stories all week long. There are some really good ones.

furrypig said...

I hope your day is going to plan! I love the model farm LO, brown is my favourite colour thi not one I seem to use in scrapping and the red with it is fab. Are those old pictures of your family?

Gail said...

Love the farm layout. Great colours. Would love to see your digi layout.

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Adorable layout, Sian. I always love to study your fantastic details. Sounds like you have a full plate this week. I'm looking forward to a trip out of state for my brother's wedding this week! Once that's behind us I have a list of "must-do's" myself. xo

Maria Ontiveros said...

Love the layout Sian! My teaching term ended last week, so I'm doing lots of catch-up and clean up this week.

I have lots of albums....it's actually getting the pages into them that's the problem!!!
And a lot less of the old, please....or I must be vintage!!
Am also hoping to have a go at Alexa's digi page.

scrapchick said...

Have fun with the digi! Love the layout, great feel to it.

Alana said...

Old you? Nah!
Hope you had time to get on with your wish list today.

Bubbles said...

Lovely layout - really interesting placement... and the colour choice is so perfect!

Gem's Crafts said...

Happy flat hunting! And I love your LO - I too need new albums, just finished the last one! Its all this blogging, its encouraging me to do more scrapping!

scrappysue said...

Storytelling Sunday is such fun Sian, I am itching to join in (hopefully when life slows down a little; or will it ever?). Good luck with your lovely list and finding your brother a flat. I always smile when I hear that; everyone calls them "apartments" out here!

Ruth said...

Lovely attention to detail on your LO. And less of the old ...

Carmen said...

Oooh now - Sian does digi? I'd love to see that. I tried once and it scrambled my brain. But I am a bit numptyish when it comes to anything technical at ALL!

Am so glad the poster is being enjoyed :) I knew it found it's way to the right person!

Jimjams said...

Good luck with the flat hunting for your brother ... not a responsibility I'd fancy. Having said that, I was responsible for viewing possible houses for my Mum before she moved to our neck of the woods!! She must trust me (and your brother you!)

Louise said...

oh no, don't go digi!! lol! I cannot get to grips with it at all!
Love all the little bits on your farm yard layout. good luck with the flat hunting.

Thanks too for your comment on my Tower Bridge photos...how funny that you mention Sherlock Holmes when i've just finished a layout with him as the theme xx

Alison said...

It IS lovely when life gets back to 'normal' isn't it? Love the LO!

Michelle said...

We went back to School last week, for 3 days! This week is short too as we had BHM off and Thursday is polling day at School, so its a TD day for me! lol

I love ur layout :)

Amy said...

Sian you have put this page together quite beautifully - again it is the attention to detail but it is also the ability to combine vintage photos with modern scrap product that is done so seamlessly!

Kirsty.a said...

Today I won't! And I didn't!
I love that farm layout. How can you bear not having them in albums? I'm really anal about that (and about books not lying horizontal on shelves)

alexa said...

Hope you have had a lovely day, Sian! I love that wonderfully nostalgic page: I remember being IN photos like this, with just these sorts of clothes and caps, and farm buildings a round... Hope the template is going well?

Cheryl said...

What a fab LO Sian sounds like you have got your hands full. I too have to sort a routine as exams looming x

Rachel B said...

Sounds like a plan! Hope you had fun crafting and shopping ;)

Ginger said...

Can't wait to see your digi layout, you will have lots of fun doing it I'm sure:) I love those old photos, especially the one with the chickens! P.S thanks for your recent comment.
