The View Challenge: Round-up.

Hello again.

Well I felt a bit better and much more normal today, thank you for your kind get well soon wishes and thank you to Anne and Kathi for getting round to do extra comments for me. I have been round to all your blogs last night so I feel better about that :)

I have learned my lesson and will get all the prompts done earlier next month so in case anything happens they at least will be ready. Apologies again.

Sue has come up trumps with another fab sketch. So if you are recording your views for a book at the end of it then you can use this sketch if you like :)
Isn't it great. Thanks Sue.

So I have a few photos if you have time.
I wanted to show you how my yearly projects are shaping up.

For my 12x12 scrapbook I have decided that I will take photos from the South West Coast Path from Ilfracombe to Braunton (where I live to where I work).
I know most of the path but not all of it and some of it I haven't been on since I was a child so looking forward to getting back to it. I didn't want to just take the same shot as I could see how same-y they would be of the cliffs and sea. They are my favourite views though so I still wanted to record them, this way there will be a variety and the point of it was to get out and enjoy it. I know if it was the same shot I would cheat and go down in the car lol. (I know not clever; but I do know myself :) )

So yesterday after being stuck in bed or at work all week with the lurgy, Mum and I decided to get some fresh air and get my view shot. (The challenge is working, I would never have gone out otherwise).
We wanted to go down to Croyde as there is a flat bit.

And then of course we thought we would be clever and go up Middlesborough Hill. Well it was worth it but goodness it was a climb.
And my layout.
I also wanted to show you my completed January photo and layout as the layout had a dummy photo on it last time. This is how it turned out.

So I am pleased with how that is working out. I think I may write about each trip and add it into the album as separate pages or they will just fit into the project life album.

My minibook is shaping up differently to how I set out with it. I really like my neighbourhood shot of our 'everyday' dog walk.
So I am going to do it as an instagram and add the instagram logo to it. I downloaded this from Cathy Zielske's blog.
I am going to use the lines from the poem in this scrapbook.

 and February
I have not got round to taking my kitchen window photo yet but I have been thinking about what to do with them.

So thanks for joining in for those that have and for anyone that hasn't had chance you can do it anytime through the month and share it next month. Or come back and add it, whichever you prefer.

Ok, see you next month :)


  1. Hi Jenni glad you are feeling better xxxx
    Well done on sorting out your album, it is my job tomorrow as today was WC and then chilling out. I am home alone tomorrow :)

  2. I am happy to hear that you feel better now. The seaside photos are awesome on the layouts and what a good idea for the neighbourhood view. I still haven't decided exactly what to do with the photos but I am coming there. Have a nice week.

  3. Gorgeous pages - loving the sewing on them and I am looking forward to seeing next months.

    Great sketches, Sue:)

  4. Glad to hear you are feeling better Jennie. Beautiful photographs, I've added my layout based on the sketch, it was a challenging one but well worth it.

  5. Glad you are back on your feet again. Those pages are lovely, no idea what I am going to do with mine, must do something this time round. x
