Wrapping up Learn Something New

So, here we are with my final pages of Learn Something New. Hmm, yes, Hugh needs to concentrate on what he is doing when he is painting! Needless to say this photo is staged as I had to rapidly take the cup of coffee away, throw it away and make him a fresh one!
Penny asked me to photocopy her certificates so that she could hand them in to Boots - I had no idea that she had done so much training when she worked at the local chemists as a Saturday assistant.
This is the dress I bought to wear to the graduation if it had been cold and wet - it has a suit jacket that goes with it and I would have worn it with knee length boots. As it was warm I wore it to work as in the photo - so many people asked me if I was going for an interview!
I read on Shimelle's blog about 'Blurb' and decided to have a go myself and make a photobook for Ben of his graduation photos. Waiting for it to be delivered now.
I have been on the Cambridge diet since April now and am within a pound of my goal weight! Really pleased with myself and looking forward to maintaining it this time and not putting it all back on again!
Hmm - I did eat sensibly when we went out for the meal to celebrate Penny's new job - honestly!
I used the last page to write a closing letter about the month of September, detailing how less stressful this September has been compared with last year and how lucky I feel this year. I have really enjoyed doing LSNED again, but may skip it next year and concentrate on layouts instead!
This is the inside back cover. I found a wonderful felt house decoration (thank you Sian) which I won a while ago, which I felt went perfectly with this year's theme and finished off the book nicely.
And that's a wrap! Except that I am hoping to be able to make a quick slideshow presentation of the whole book which I will post tomorrow.

I had totally forgotten about popping that felt house into that parcel! What a lovely surprise to see it again.

I think I can remember your last years September, though, and I'm glad everyone had a happier one this time round!

Your book has a lovely cosy feel to it

What a lovely reminder of all the good things that happened this September. I think I am done with LSNED. It just doesn't seem to work for me although this year's project was truly a learning experience. Congrats on the weight loss! I've been working on mine for a while now and have just 2 1/2 pounds to go to my goal. It sure isn't easy!
