Blogging for Scrapbookers- Prompt 3

I thought it would be interesting to do this prompt again this year and see if my favourites have changed from when I did it first time round in 2009. I decided not to look at my five faves from then until I had typed up this post, so here goes (there will be a link to my last post at the end of this post!).

  • I am loving the blossom this year. According to the news this year is really good for blossom as we had such a hard winter. I may have hated the snow at the time, but I love what it has helped to produce.

  • CSI - the original series, set in Las Vegas. I have been watching it on tv for ages, but decided I would like to see it from the very start and work my way through. I bought the first series and Penny and I have been watching it whilst Hugh has been away on business. We finished it last week and Series 2 arrived on Monday! Not only do I love the programme and the characters, but I keep getting excited about Las Vegas as we will be going there as part of our grand tour next year.
  • 'The Pillars of the Earth' by Ken Follet. I have just started reading this and I am really enjoying it. I didn't see the tv series, but my Dad had the book for Christmas and has just lent it to me, having thoroughly enjoyed it himself.

  • Scrapbooking, of course. I am making sure I get plenty of 'me' time to do what I like doing best, which is creating pages. I came across the Scrapology blog a while back and am finding it very inspirational at the moment.
  • More books! I have the Rough Guide to Cyprus and the Rough Guide to England very handy at the moment as I am planning our holidays for this year. I just love Rough Guides and have been researching on Amazon which ones to buy for our mega trip next year. Have I told you about that yet? I'm not sure that I have - that can be a story for another day!

And my favourites in 2009 can be found here. So are they very different?

Will have to check out the rough guide for England myself. I love both the original CSI an CSI: Miami. My Goddaughter read and loved Pillars of the Earth. I watched the miniseries and found it to be a guilty pleasure.

This is a nice post Becky - I really enjoyed the way you've done it. I think both posts are centred around the same things in a way, what do you think?

I'll have to check out those Rough Guides - never heard of them. I read Pillars & really enjoyed it.
