Project Revisited – Sn@p! Layouts

I’m giving my blog a long overdue makeover, changing the design and trying to streamline it a bit. As part of this blog tidy guess what? I found a guest post in my drafts that I wrote in 2013 for the amazing blog of Katharina Frei. I never published the full post on my blog and I’m sure Katharina won’t mind if I do now.

Back in 2013 I bought my first Simple Stories Sn@p! album and promised myself that I would fill it full of lots of lovely pics. Since then I’ve gone a little pocket-style memory keeping CRAZY haven’t I?

Mmm, I really must show more of them on my blog. If you happen to have the Jan/ Feb 2014 issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft 120 then you will have spotted some more of my pocket memory keeping pages in there.

This set of pages documents a day of pottering out and about on 15th June 2013, with my partner David.

A day in the life of Kim Dellow in London, a page from my Simple Stories memory keeping journal.

At that time we were lucky enough to live in a wonderful part of London. Give a Toot for Tooting! Walking distance to all sorts of amazing areas of London. 

On that particular day in 2013 we decided to potter about Brixton for the day and try out a pizzeria that David had heard of called Franco Manco – super yum! We shared a pizza then pottered around the shops.

Of course after all that pottering we had to have a piece of cake didn’t we? There is a cafe called Opus that my cousin introduced me to that does Italian style hot chocolate – chocolate heaven to any chocolate freak!

Ahh bless we look so young all the way back in 2013, happy days!

I wonder what other blog posts I will find lurking about…

    Ah yes, scrapbooking/memory keeping…that was how I came into papercrafting, back in 2005 when I was planning our wedding. I made two huge how we met/wedding albums, subsequent albums for our children and then, after a foray into shadow boxes, I settled on cardmaking. But the tug to chronicle Life before I've finished living it is always there.

    Here you've set in images and words One Day…our lives are made up of single days. We should savour the moments…one day I will get back to the first plan, Kim. For now, I knit, I crochet.

      Ahh Shirl, so very true, maybe when you are back in more of the swing of it you can get back into memory keeping again. I bet the two albums you made are wonderful, what a lovely idea. Kx
