Welcome to (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day and my leg of the ScrapaGoGo bloghop. If you're following along, you may be visiting from Sarah's lovely blog. If you want to join in, you can start at the ScrapaGoGo blog too :D
Thought I'd share the story behind this page, which is brought to you by a few hybrid elements and a rather lovely die cut piece of paper from my May ScrapaGoGo kit.
"When we set out to walk around Snailsden reservoir, the first thing Dad did was strike out in the opposite direction. On what it pleased him to call "the path". Up on t'moors (Yorkshire), t'ground were covered wi' great bigg grassy tussocks, some o' which give way when trodden on. No way of telling which ones! You can always tread the gaps betwixt them but some of 'em 'ave boot-sucking bogs in between. Again, no knowing which. So we tramped and stumbled and wound our way around the reservoir, brought up short by the odd wall here and there, or a hidden stream without a bridge and clumps of thigh-high scrubby bushes. And all the time we were entertained by the incessant nasal honking of a Canada goose choir rehearsal. At least, that's what we assumed it must be. Eventually we made it round which was quite the achievement (and actually quite good fun). But there was absolutely, definitely, completely, totally and undeniably nothing whatsoever approaching a path."
I love playing with words when I write my journalling and I couldn't resist including a little bit of God's own country. Yorkshire five! (That's like a high five but while wearing a flat cap). Ever tried to include an accent or dialect on a page? Give it a shot!
And now onto Nic who has another post in store. Happy Hopping!
P.S. The work RAMBLE might be useful to your in your travels along the hop!
