Some thing a little different

 I have been doing a little voluntary work with some young adults with learning difficulties. Anyhow the wanted to do some scrap-booking, so I said you can make your own. Well I cut them out ready for them but they put them together and decorated the fronts, one or two needed a little help but most done nearly all the work themselves. Didn't they do well, they were so proud when they finished and I was really proud of them too. It just goes to show what can be achieved with a little encouragement. We are now busy decorating the pages, must admit it is fun seeing what they want in, we are doing a mixture of what they love most and photo's


  1. That's so lovely Dot and they have made such great covers for the books. Well done to you too for encouraging them and giving your time.
    Off to Lynne's T shirt painting/stamping at Vicky Stampers soon... wish you could be there!
    Love Jo x

  2. Dot
    You should also be very proud of yourself. As they say "Ask a busy person" that is you, you give so much of your time to others.
    They have ever reason to be proud of themselves and I am sure they went home feeling so boosted from what they achieved. As crafters we know that crafting has therapeutic properties and how valuable it is in our lives.
    A pat on the back to you for what you have helped them to achieve.

  3. No wonder they were proud of themselves Dot, they've done some lovely work and well done to you for giving up some time to help them.

  4. I remember you telling me that you were going to do this. How great they have turned out. Wonder who is the proudest - them or you.
    So nice to see some male elements in there too - you are doing a smashing job with them Dot and I bet they love you as much as we do.

  5. Hi Dot, that is a brilliant idea and your group have done an amazing job. I hope you are having fun too. love Anne E x
