True stories-Day 1

had me stumped at first.I had a quick read, the morning it arrived.

And then today I grabbed my notebook and settled down with my reading glasses so I could concentrate better.


I scribbled down three pages worth of notes.Covering questions people ask me.Advice I would give a younger version of myself and ideas for layouts.

I am thinking of doing two layouts about my children's names and how I came to name them.So watch this space.

But my first layout from prompt 1 is about questions people always ask me.

I used one of the sketches Shimelle gave us.This made it a quick effortless layout.That used up lots of scraps of old paper and an old photo that has been waiting to be scrapped.

The questions are

1.How do you keep your house so clean and tidy?

2.What's for tea?

3.How do you stay so slim?

All things I have covered oodles of times in my blog.So I won’t bore you with the details.

When I went to put it away,I realised I had a pile of layouts I hadn’t shared on my blog.

So here they are.A bit dark as I took them at night in the kitchen.


Ride the rails

Who am I?


So I’m off to top up my painkillers for my back, so I can scrap the evening away.

I really like your FAQ layout for Shimelle's class. Isn't it amazing how much we can write once we just get started?
