Smashing WOYWW!

What!  Wednesday again?  Where did that week go?  Well here is my desk as my entry to WOYWW and you can see I am actually in the process of doing a double page in my smash book.  My faithful mug is full of tea (yes, it does look weak and milky – in my defence it is Earl Grey so never gets very dark!), the pile of stamps from my holiday is STILL there, although some of the ink pads have moved because I am in the process of adding stamping to these pages.
Here is a completed page from the smash book, of our trip to Weston Park where Alex was chosen by the magician to be his assistant.  Needless to say Alex loved it.  It was particularly funny when the magician pretended to leave Alex to run the show and so Alex stood up and said in a loud, clear voice ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you..’  The magician hastily came back then! The writing on the page tells this story so that we will remember it in the future.  I am three months behind in my book so am on a mission to try and catch up! 
Just to finish I thought I would post a quick photo of Alex dressed as a cowboy for the cowboys and Indians fancy dress day at Kings camp. That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.

It sounds as if you had a great day out with Alex
It looks like he enjoyed being the magicians assistant
I love that you fill your journalling book with photos and the story
It will be such a keepsake for Alex in years to come

It looks as though you've been very busy again with your scrapping and journalling Caro! And Alex looks the real cowboy!! Glad you liked the Mad Max dog freebie, the real mad max was a little darling but hard work! It's a shame but his owners husband doesn't like him at all and wants him gone! well, we'll have him again, just for a few days while they're away.... but I will be looking forward to them coming back and taking him away will my fish in the pond! Thanks for your visit! Thank you for my snoop!!
Happy WOYWW!

Yee Haw! Love the layout - I like seeing more than one photo and the step by step (for lack of a better term!) grouping is great too.

Happy (better late than never) WOYWW!

Oh Caro,

Your man is growing so fast and what a wonderful memory to include in the life book, this is one moment he can now treasure forever. He does seem like a lovely outgoing character and a good looking cowboy too. Thanks for popping in to say hi like always.

Happy Belated WOYWW

Alex is such a cutie. It's awesome that you are saving these memories in story and photo form for him (and you) so you will never forget and be able to look back on those days with fond memories.

Thanks for the visit on Wednesday. Happy relatively late WOYWW from #10.
