 I had over 300 photos printed from Aldi so I have used some of them in my 'Days Out' Journal.
I used all kinds of mediums for backgrounds. It was an opportunity to include my stash of Ephemera collected in the last 18 months.

Excellent idea to keep the journal of your days out. It helps getting all those photos printed at the bargain price.

How nice to see some freehand work , my desk could never boast that! Aren't you good at visiting places, blimey, with 400 photos that's going to be a very thick book!!!

Lovely scrapbook pages there. Thanks for reminding me about Aldi pictures. I will have to check them out as I have some needing printing!
Have you been to the Black Country Living Museum? Fabulous day out. Oh and the American Museum in Bath? You can dress up there as a Puritan!!

Surprised you get time to do any crafting Carol, you are never at home. How lucky to visit all those places and clever to dedicate a journal to places you visit - love it.

Hi there Carol,

You asked if the woodpecker is in my yard -- Yes! I've had up to four on that tree (at the same time). I have a yellow sided green cheek conure and the food that she doesn't eat I put outside for the birds (along with other goodies). They love it!!!
Thanks for visiting me
