VACATION BLOG HOP - MAY 20th - 22nd - DAY 3

"and now, the end is near, and so we face, the final curtain...............I did it my way!!!!!!!"

Haha,just a wee sing-song there for everyone who is still hopping along!  It's the 3rd and final day of this Vacation Blog Hop which has been kindly hosted by Nancy at 

To finish the hop, yep,you've guessed it, it's more Portugal scrapbook pages!  I've finally finished the book, so I'm really pleased!  Even if it is 18months since we were in Portugal!!

Thank you to everyone who has left comments about my creations, very much appreciated.

Again, the pages have been made up with 8x8 backing papers, paper cut to 8x8 size, my xcut cutting system, cuttlebug and various embellishments and of course my trusty double sided sticky tape.

  1. Hi Lisa, More great pages. Thanks for stopping by my blog and having a look around. The sheet I have posted there is for the link up parties. Usually there are more participants showing their craft work than on the blog hops and there is usually a longer time frame for crafters to add their work. I created that sheet to help me keep track of the links I have already visited and the ones I still need to. On the hops the host will tell you the line up and you follow from one to the other and on the link ups anyone can post their craft so the list keeps growing. The last link up I did had 120 crafters. It took me a few days to go thought them all so as I went along I crossed off the numbers on my sheet. Hope that helps.

  2. Great pages!!! I love the patterns and colors you used. They are simple and very tasteful! Nice work!

  3. Congrats on finishing you album! You will enjoy looking at it as you did a fantastic job! Don't feel bad about being behind most scrappers i know are, few are caught up! Will look forward to seeing more of your stuff in the future too! TFS!
