It's Monday! Scrappy Fun and What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. I love this meme, it helps me stay on track ... well, most of the time. Thanks Sheila!

Had a fun day catching up with friends at a charity scrap day ... lots of talking and a little bit of scrapping haha

Scrapped a photo of Anthony & Christine's wedding 
using a lovely Sue Tonga kit

#bookblogwalkers update #3: Felicia's Book Blog Walkers ~ I've walked with Bella, 45 mins each day except for Saturday when I was at the charity scrap event ... not a bad effort. You can join anytime, it really is fun having the support of old and new bloggy friends while getting heart healthy :)

A busy week coming up ... my birthday Wednesday and *yippee* family time and we have a long weekend with Australia Day on the 26th. I'm participating in the Australia Day Book Giveaway Blog Hop hosted by Shelleyrae @ Book'd Out so make sure you pop in on Saturday for Australia and International giveaways of our fabulous Australian talent.

  1. My reading has slumped badly though I do visit blogs often. I haven't found any books around either so maybe things will improve once I get hold of some good books. I do so like your scrapping.

  2. So glad you had two good trilogies! Looking forward to Heartbeat as I am such a fan of Elizabeth Scott. Have a fantastic birthday on Wednesday.

  3. Gorgeous scrapping! Sounds like some great reading too. Happy Birthday for later in the week and may Australia Day be a good one too. I'll look in on the Australia Day book hop.

  4. Sounds like a fun week ahead and your birthday!!!! YAY!!!

  17. Lovely scrapping...and happy birthday! Hope you enjoy all of your books....and thanks for visiting my blog.

    I'm curious about The January Wish.

  18. Planning to read Me Since You this week! :) hope you enjoy all your books! Happy reading!

    Here's our It's Monday! post

  19. Wow ... you are an incredibly talented scrapper. I hope you have a lovely birthday!

  20. So many great ones this week and coming up. I enjoyed Laura Wiess in the past, didn't realise she had a new one until this last week it seems to be everywhere.

  21. You are rocking it! I hate that I now have to visit blogs at night instead of in the morning :) I wish I was a scrapper but alas just not in my talent wheel *sigh* (Probably a good thing as I already spend enough on yarn LOL)

  22. Reading "Crazy Rich: Power, Scandal, and Tragedy Inside the Johnson & Johnson Dynasty" by Jerry Oppenheimer.

  23. Great job with the walking! Since it's mostly around 10 degrees these days walking to the car is all the exercise I'm getting!
