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.

Great page layout - what a shame about the flash altho' I must say, from my own experience, the flash button is well hidden on these disposable cameras but you've still come up with a comprehensive page.

Love those butterfly pages and the quotes/sayings you've incorporated into them.

Glad you're getting back in the swing.
