This idea is from Katie the Scrapbook lady.


  1. I loved the book 'The Help' and am looking forward to seeing the movie if it ever makes it as far as Spain( if not then the DVD!).I found 'The Distant Hours' difficult to get 'into', but by the end of it, had loved it!

  2. I read "The Help" earlier this year with my book club and enjoyed it, then a friend and I went to see the movie last week. I thought they did a great job converting it to a movie. Great job on your goals this month!

  3. i love this recap, what a great idea!
