Scrapbook Tuesday - Fergus' Mini Album

Hello There!

It is Tuesday after a Bank Holiday here in the UK - so off to work, but at least it is a short week this week! 

I haven't done a layout to show you this week.  Nope!  I have 16 to show you!  

I have been playing catch up with Fergus' mini album, as I am waaaay behind with it.  Now those of you who know me, know I take a little Highland Coo called Fergus with me on my travels, and usually try to get his photograph taken at the destination or with whoever I am visiting.  So here are the first 16 pages of his album which was started PBD, so I don't think you have seen these before.  If you have then I apologise for showing you again....

Here is Fergus as he was when we bought him on the top road of Scotland in September 2008, when we were on our little Highland Tour.  The top right and bottom left were taken on Skye.  The bottom right was taken in Mevagissy, Cornwall, when we went on our first Scrapbooking retreat with Linda of Just Scrapbooking.
Fergus does like to look at pretty papers.  He also loves to travel - just as well really, and here he is in Paris and Prague, though he did not have his photo taken on these occasions.  And the bottom right is in St Ives on another scrapbooking retreat.
Top left he is in the Classrom with my tin I had altered - must remember to share that with you, top right he is at Claverton with some of the gang from my Quilting group and bottom left he is in the garden of Claverton.  Bottom right he is sitting on the wing of an old car at the Black Country Museum.
Oops!  I have these the wrong way round....Bottom left is the Black Country Museum again, he enjoyed that trip as he got to go on a very old bus, down a mine and on a canal boat all in one day! Top left is in Rome, bottom right is with his buddies on the settee at Christmas and the top right is with someone I am sure a lot of you will recognise - yep Mr Tim Holtz!!

I do love doing these mini albums as you get chance to use up lots of little Snippets and have a smile to yourself whilst making them.  If anyone knows where I may get another 4" scrapbook by AMM, please let me know as there will not be much left of this one once I have caught up. I am not fussy as to colour - nor is Fergus!  Keep an eye out for some more famous peeps next time wont you!

Thanks for peeking and leave me a comment so I know you have been here.  I shall be popping this into the Playhouse so you can have a peep there too.

Hugs

Hettie and Fergus.

So much fun... 16 layouts, and all delightful! Fergus is certainly a well-travelled Highland Cow, and I hope, by Thursday evening, that I'll have a photo similar to the one in the top right of the final collection!

Oooh Sam, how lovely. A great idea and each page is lovely. Fergus sure has been around - did you piccies of him on the staddle stone come out? And I have a piccie with him on at Highclere if you haven't got one. I suspect you have though.

Hugs, Di xx

Lucky Tim to have his pic taken with Fergus! I have done nothing as I have had a sick child at home Since Friday and have been back to the doc again today which takes 2 hours of there, app, pharmacy and home again...jiggety jig! Now it is off to work again in an hour. Might have a blank desk to share tomorrow!
