Scrapbooking UK style

Our end-of-May bank holiday weekend was a wet, windy, miserable one.  I took that as an opprotunity to try to finish up some of the half-dozen unfinished scrapbook projects that have been nagging at me for years.

After completing a baby album for our friend’s 1 1/2 year old ‘baby’ I moved on to getting caught up in my Christmas album.  3/4 of the way through the baby album I had exhausted most of the end bits of my photo adhesive so Monday morning I went into the craft store in Reading, hoping to find adhesive and a couple of papers for my Christmas album. 

In the store, they had probably 10 aisles of papercraft items, a good sign!  But, alas, quantity does not mean quality.  I would rate the selection somewhere around the quality of what you could buy in the States in 1995.  Odds and ends of papers, a hodge-podge of stickers, most of wich looked like things you’d see up as wall decoration in a nursing home.  ICK!  I got a roll of adhesive and got out of there as quick as I could before it rubbed off on me.

Holli informs me that she stocks up in the States.  Add one more stop to my Seattle shopping list…
