Did you know that May is Get Caught Reading Month? If you're in the US perhaps this is something you're more aware of, but I'd never heard of it till I read Sian's post on the Gotta Craft blog. What a fine idea! Why don't we do that too? Who should I contact to suggest it?
Sian mentioned it as good scrap fodder for using the latest Gotta Craft kit. Funnily enough, I did a bit of scrapping yesterday and I just happened to use a Gotta Craft kit (though it was from a previous month - lovely beautiful scrummy For The Record by Echo Park) and I just happened to scrap about books, too! See? :)
So true - The Doctor just loves browsing stalls or shops stocking second hand books. It'll keep him happy for hours! He usually buys at least one new treasure, but the browsing is almost as much fun as actually finding a title he wants.
But then, that's true for me, too.... As soon as I spotted this stall on the bank of the Tiber in Rome, I got my camera ready for the shot I knew was coming. And as soon as I got the shot, I was browsing that stall on my own account!
I had a lot of fun distressing everything on this layout to make it look old and 'second hand', and trying to handwrite in a font that was reminiscent of type! The papers and stickers from For The Record couldn't have been more perfect :)
In this family we're happy to be caught reading any time of the year.... And chances are it'll be a second hand book!
