here I am blogging again.

Since I last blogged we've been to Devon to visit my parents over Easter weekend which was great despite the weathers attempt to dampen our spirits with consistent rain and wind!!!

Charlotte has also been on school holiday which had been causing us both quite alot of stress (mine hidden badly and hers plainly obvious) We both survived the 2 days!!! and the Layout
below is the product of that. Charlotte took a disposable camera with her which I was very excited about as I thought I'd be able to see her room, etc. Only to be sorely dissapointed when we discovered out of the 27 photos there were 6 you could see, this was because she forgot you had to use the flash indoors!!!! Bless her, although they weren't quite my words when I first discovered what had happened!!!

I've censored Charlotte's friends as I haven't checked I can include their photo yet.

Underneath the photo of Charlotte is a pull down with a map of the place they stayed in and their room marked on it. I've raised it slightly and folded the kit list we were given underneath, we've written little notes on it and I think that it will be nice to look at and remind us how we got ready for this first trip. I used part of the letter we got explaining about the trip, the name of the school and place of the trip and the date.

Underneath the photo I've written 'Don't smile' which is what they were saying to each other as Charlotte took the photo.

These Butterfly Fat Pages are for a swap I am taking part in on the cardmaking and papercraft forum. I will receive 14 fat pages from other memebers and have already got some lovely ones, when I get them all I will put them on here.

My mojo has done a runner and I've not scrapped for an age, today though I had a few ideas so maybe just maybe it's returning slowly. Watch this space and hopefully something will appear soon!!!

Final February uks challenge

This is the last Lo for February, to include purple and ribbon (no ribbon) something sparkly, 29 or 2 & 9 of something, a water theme.

This picture was taken of Charlotte when she was about 2 at the Millenium Dome, we had such a great day there, even though the dome got a lot of bad press we enjoyed our day. Helped by the fact we had free tickets!!
