A bit of sorting....and a bit of finishing

One of things on my summer break 'to do' list was to sort out my craft stuff.....I've done pretty well with this so far.....all the boxes emptied and sorted....the shelves all tidied.....some bits I'm sure I'll never use have gone in my 'work box' or to the charity shop or the boot sale box.....and a few ready to Ebay.
I know [more or less] what I actually have....and am far more likely to be able to find it and use it!!
On one shelf I found these bags
with UFOs that had been there for longer than I want to admit......so I decided to actually finish them.....2 down and 2 to go.
 A collection of photos that S had put on FB.......Little A is always ready to pose for the camera.
This page began when I was sorting some old 35mm pics......one off pics of DS......not really related to any particular event that I could remember.....it seemed a good idea to just collage them altogether on one page.....I can see where Little A inherited her posing gene from!!

It's fun to see the two generations of pictures together. Love the one of your DS in the red wellies.

I do love a page with lots of photos on, and these just satisfy my eye wonderfully! A spread of ages is always intriguing.

Good for you. I know I still have multiple files like that waiting to be finished. Not likely any time soon!

Have loved having a look through your blog. You've inspired me to look through my crafty stuff and get creating. I also need to clear out kitchen cupboards.....but not sure that's as inspiring but it definitely needs doing! Xx

It must feel good to finish off those pages.

Isn't it such a feeling of accomplishment and relief to get those UFO's done?!? Great job on the clean up and the layouts!

Great job completing these layouts! Yes, it does look like the posing gene runs in the family!
