Well, I can't believe I actually managed to do 2 layouts this weekend - what was I thinking of?!?!?!? This is definitely not my usual style ie: 8.5 x 11 landscape, different patterned papers, 2 photos put on at an angle! but I wanted to try out my new Technique Tuesday stamps for the first time (to make the flower). The scan is absolutely dire though - have a feeling the scanner may be on the way out/not working properly and as for the stitching of the two halves - well!!! This one is more my usual stuff - Jamie with Neil back in March 2000 - can't believe it was nearly 7 years ago now!! Still love these Scenic Route papers and must buy some more before they disappear for ever! Must also hurry up with scrapping both boys baby photos as only a few months now until the next one is here LOL! Have to admit that it would be lovely to be able to use pink occasionally but we'll have to wait and see. My Mum and step-dad have just been around to see us before they go up to stay with my brother in Cheshire for Christmas. We're going to have our "Christmas day" with them on New Year's Eve - a large roast dinner and another lot of pressies for the kids to open. I love doing it this way as it spreads Christmas over a few days and the kids don't get as bored so quickly. We're having Christmas Day on our own as a family (for the first time ever) but then my wonderful in-laws are coming on the 27th for a few days which I'm looking forward to - can I admit to loving my mother in law to bits LOL!
