5th Bloggy Birthday

I was reading a post by Ifa Zainon about her blog being 5 years old, and it struck me that I had set mine up in the summer of 2008, so must also be 5....and my blog birthday is today.  Here's my first post... and 808 later I'm still posting most weeks.

Ifa used her birthday post to review how her style had changed over time, and I'm going to shamelessly pinch her idea!!

In 2008 Harry was smaller than me

and I was experimenting with journalling styles.

In 2009 I mourned the loss of Woolies whilst making my own 'die cut' 12x12 papers

and I even made a LO about my blog.

In 2010 I liked using bright papers

..and experimented with Photographs of Katie

In 2011 I recorded our celebration of the Royal Wedding with an early bunting and Kraft card appearance...

..and got into my punches again

In 2012 The Olympics and Jubilee meant lots of Red White and Blue

And in 2013 (so far) I'm still loving Kraft, cutting out, stamping and journalling

And throughout it all, I still occasionally make a layout about me :)

How long have you been scrapbooking/crafting, and has your style changed?

Well happy birthday to your blog! I don't think your style has changed overly, it's as eye catchy as ever. Love the things that you choose to scrap about too.

For eye catching read busy Julia... I could never do white space really!

Lovely to see the progression - and the reappearance of things you love like stamping, punching, journalling and stitching/trims

Congratulations on 5 years of fab blogging.
