Another PDW Blog Train

Well, I'm back from a fabulous, relaxing weekend in Boston and straight into reality - taking children to and from school, washing, cooking etc. etc. Jetlag so far isn't as bad as I feared - I did wonder around somewhat zombie like on Monday, but after 11 hours sleep I felt much better yesterday and this morning although it was tough dragging myself out of bed I feel fine now!

Anyway, it's time for another Plain Digital Wrapper blog train!! This one is packed full of brag books pages made with May's collaboration kit, Through My Window: A Boy's Life - although aimed at boys, I think it is extremely versatile and great for lots of different pages. (not all shown in the preview!)

We have all done "brag book" pages - 6" by 4" pages that are great for making mini albums that are easy to print out at home. I have done two pages for you, which can be downloaded here. Please remember that all these brag book pages are for personal use only.
Please remember that everyone is in different time zones, so if someone doesn't have their links up, please remember to check back

Now, off to the goodies :
Plain Digital Wrapper
Jamie's Creations
Oh and By the Way
LittleBehrs Den
OCD by ChereKaye
Wood That I Could
Priddy Sweet Scraps
Dracowin's Curiosities
Scraptacular Designs

Don't forget that you can earn a whole kit just for doing the challenges at Plain Digital Wrapper!!

I'm so excited!

This time tomorrow I will be almost on a plane!! Woohoo!!!!

Can't wait!

Not only do I get to go away without children, see my husband and get to see Boston for the first time, I also am hopefully going to meet with one of my fellow PDW designers on the Friday! So, fingers crossed I should have lots of lovely photos when I get back on Monday - that's assuming I am awake enough on Monday after an overnight flight to actually focus at all.

Anyway - very quickly here is your final letter - "Z". Thank you to all who have come back every day to see and collect each letter - and an even bigger thank you to all of you who took the time to leave me a comment - they are much appreciated and make me happy!

You can download Z from 4shared here or mediafire here

Two More Days to Go....

.....Only two more days of letters

....and only two more full days here in the UK for me before I get to go out to Boston, MA to see Tim for the first time in three weeks. WOOOHOOO! Can't wait - Granny and Grandpa are looking after Katie and Graeme so I can go on my own. I've already put aside 6 books to keep me company in the airport/on the flight.

A request next - if you have some pennies left over from NSD and want to get some quick scrapping done, PDW has some fantastic quickpages for you. Reason I want you to buy? It's an in-house competition - designers vs. creative team. Each team was given a kit and we had to produce some QPs with it - both teams have produced more than 20 gorgeous pages and they are up for sale now. The money raised will be donated to charity at the end of it all and the teams get points for every set that is purchased. Obviously I would love it if you buy the designers set - but I want to be fair here so am linking to both sets. They cost $5 each which for 20 easy, co-ordinating pages seems an absolute bargain - you could produce an album in a morning!

So here's your penultimate letter, "Y" which can be downloaded from 4shared here or mediafire here.

Drizzly Bank Holiday

What is it with the UK? It seems like every bank holiday Monday we get rain. Today wasn't too bad - the drizzle didn't start till 11am, but since then it has drizzled on and off all day.

Had a lovely weekend though - Alison came and stayed with us. I've known her for 30 years and we are still good friends, even if we only see each other 3 or 4 times a year. We went swimming with the children in the "big" pool - what Graeme and Katie call the big leisure pool - less of a swimming pool and more of a "fun" pool with water slides, things that squirt water and currents that drag you round in circles.
Then today we went to the May Fayre in town - Katie's pre-school had a stall there so we spent lots of money on cake, hook-a-prize and getting Katie's face painted (pink butterfly - what a surprise; she really is a girly girl!) They also got to go on the bouncy castle, trampoline, bought some second hand books and did lots of little "games" where you won a lolly.
Today's letter is "X" - I think it's just the one today as I haven't missed any other days. How many of you will keep coming back to my blog after "Z" I wonder?
