So I think it is Wednesday again, very confused after losing an hour for daylight savings and having my kids off school sick! Loving the lighter nights but it is a shame to go back to darkness at 6am!
So on my table today is another layout I am working on, I started it last week and  got no  further forward with it.  Happily, now I am beginning to stick things down (photos taken earlier today (Tuesday) to get good light!) so hopefully I will finish it this week!
It has been a busy week, I had some health issues myself last week (all okay now), my youngest boy became sick last Friday and was horribly ill all weekend (still not 100% and has since passed it onto his sister!) and we also had my eldest boy's birthday! So, you can imagine, not much time in my craft room or blog visiting so I apologise if I didn't get around to you last week, will try harder this week!

 I finally jumped onto the Smash bandwagon and got myself a Smash book and other bits and pieces.  Think it will become a bit of a journal/diary/scrapbook for me.  
If you would like to play along with us this week at WOYWW pop over to Julia's blog for details and links!
Thanks for dropping by!

Sure hope you ALL feel better soon! I too have those fab papers you are working with there - so fun!
So you've decided to SMASH? I may have to try it out myself sooner or later, it does look fun, kinda like "old fashioned" scrapbooking!

Hope everyone is on the mend soon, I ot hit with a 24 hour bug on Monday but back to 100% today! I was blaming losing an hours sleep for feeling rough on Monday, until I started running for the bathroom that is!! Hope you get to work on your LO again, and I'm not keen on the darker mornings again but loving the extra daylight hours.

I love the look of your papers. Are they October Afternoon? Everyone here in the UK are jumping on the Smash train!
Apparently, there is a problem in the UK with the name. Smash over here is an instant mash poptato brand!

I have one son off sick this week, luckily not actually throwing up!

Have a better week

I have been thinking about getting a Smash book, too. make matters worse..our Target just started carrying them, and I am there WAY too often..I think I see one in my future! LOL!

Hope everyone feels better soon! I tried the Smash book thing, but it wasn't for me. My daughter loves them and owns three.

Whats a smash book - haven't seen this before? Smash here is a pack of dried potato - you just add boiling water - yuck! Hope you are all feeling better - my Mum is babysitting my two sick nieces so we're hoping she doesn't catch the bug - I have flights all booked for the NEC Birmingham for next Friday and wouldn't want to miss out!

Sorry you have been feeling rough...but looks like you are bouncing back and getting creative. The layout looks great and you are going to have so much fun with the Smash book.

Hope all the ickiness has gone now - poor old kids, it just spreads like wildfire, doesn't it?? I love the colours of the papers you are using, very elegant indeed.
Thanks for visiting earlier, I have really missed WOYWW and all the lovely folk!
Hugs, LLJ #26 xx
