Blog Post number 200!!–April Review


Well I have made it to 200 blog posts on my little old blog, I started it to document my crafty adventures, and have found so many great friends along the way. So a big thanks to all my followers, and people who take time to comment.

So April has been a funny old month, what with Easter, the madness of work, the weather and my holiday to Barcelona.  It was however a bittersweet end to the month as my Grandma passed away on the 26th April, 2 days before I was to fly out for my holiday.  My family wanted me to still go, but I did feel a bit guilty about going, but it really was the break from the everyday that I needed.

Here is a photo of my lovely Grandma, when she was a young lady, and one from this Christmas 2011.  I have been going through old family photos and there are so many happy times, that are easily forgotten in the day to day.  She will be missed, it is the end of a generation.  I am planning on scrapping some of these earlier photos in the future.

So as I mentioned I went off to Barcelona for a week, it was lovely 23 degrees most days and lay-ins and sightseeing.  It was just what the doctor ordered.  I have 400 photos to get printed to go with the edited down (for the 3rd time) 834 America photos.  I will be putting my order in with Photobox this week, so  lots of scrapping ahead, I brought the photo credit up a few months ago when they had a sale, so I am excited to see them arrive, and start using my new stash.
