Learn Something New Every Day: 5th September

I just want to say thank you all so much for the comments you have left for me - it's so nice to get feedback from other people and I find it really inspiring! I am definitely finding it a challenge to do a 12x12 each day and I have no idea if I'll be able to keep it up, but I put together lots of bits and pieces before hand which is a big help.

Also, I love to see that so many scrappers are teachers! I think the two go really well together as both scrappers and teachers are creative and love joining in with life - and documenting it!

My page for yesterday is above - I had so many lessons to choose from and I cheated a little bit because I really wanted to scrap these photos. They're actually from the Maize Maze on bank holiday Monday. The lesson was that it's important to have friends that are as silly as you are. I love that my friends are willing to be daft and leave their dignity behind - we have much more fun that way, screeching around in the maze!

So I'll save the stuff about days in for next time I think! (And I'll try and remember to take some photos).

My lesson for today is about my family. I moved to London from Yorkshire a year ago and I do love London and all it has to offer. But I really miss my family as we are very close and get on really well together. I call home a few times a week and chat with my Mum (and we email quite a lot - she's a scrapper too!) but I do wish it was a bit easier to visit. I probably won't be able to go home until Christmas now which I love to do and I will spend the whole holiday there, but that seems like a long time away right now.

I don't mean to sound maudlin - I love living here, there's so much to see and do and I have wonderful friends who totally occupy my time! But if I could change one thing about London, I would put it nearer to Yorkshire.

P.S. I am totally getting muddled about which prompt is for which day, which lesson is from which day and which day is the page I've just scrapped for. Duh!

P.P.S. Got my friend hooked on Sherlock last night. We have now got 2 more DVD nights in the pipeline!


  1. I love the page colours, and the way you've highlighted your journalling. I don't think it matters what we scrap or when we scrap it. I thought I was mad attempting a 8.5"x11" every day after seeing so many mini mini books, but a 12"x12" heavens. I agree with your observation about teachers & scrapping and I'm following your progress and bookmarked you on my blog LOL!

  2. Well, I think you're doing an a-maize-ing job. Did you like that? Sorry. I just couldn't resist :)

    Seriously, though, your pages look so fabulous - who cares what day you learn what.

  3. Hi! Just found my way here from LSNED. I love your pages, I especially love the background papers you've used in the last three, they work so well with your layouts.

    I've just become a follower so I get to see more of your lovely pages! xx

  4. Another gorgeous layout, I'm still in awe at your creativity - and especially that you've managed a 12x12 a day so far, even if it tails off at some point! (I'm betting it won't though...)
