Are you sitting down?


How are you?  OK I hope!!  Thank goodness it is nearly the end of the week, it's been interesting on the work front this week, and I'm waiting to see what happens next :-D  Tonight big son is off to cubs and then tomorrow we are taking them both down to Lyme Regis, on the Dorset/Devon border where my in-laws (MIL, FIL, SIL, BIL and neice!) have rented a house for two weeks.  They went last Friday, so are into their second week, and as it is half term my two are going to join them.  I will miss them immensely, but HB and I are looking forward to some "us" time.  Actually I'm looking forward to being able to get some crafting done without having to referee the antics of two small boys, but shhhh, don't tell HB!!  Hopefully the weather holds out as they have been saying it might snow soon... yuck, snow, horrid cold nasty stuff!!

Anyway, enough of my blah blah blah, and onto todays card... except, nope it's not a card!!  I KNOW!!! I actually finished a layout!!  In fact I finished about 6 of them, and am still going.  Nope not sure what happened there either, as I am truely shocking for finishing layouts, so I'll be sharing them on and off for a little while :-D  Most of them have been started in class, and have been waiting for me to find the right picture to go on them, and a few bits and bobs have been appropriated out of the bags for card making... naughty!!  

First up, a page on James, from photos I took on his ninth birthday earlier in the year

Aren't I good I even put journalling on this one!!  I know the current trend is to really embellish scrapbook pages with all sorts of stuff, but I like it when the photos are this lovely and remain the main focus.  Which is odd, because I don't do CAS cards very often!!

That's it from me today, more tomorrow
