Christmas Book

After seeing the Scrapbook Sisters blog tonight where Julie has uploaded pictures of the last class project I remembered that I had promised to upload pictures of mine. I used photographs of Matthew and Holly when we went on the Santa Express on the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch railway in 1996 (I think!) - the year that is not the place.

Over Christmas I have also finished a Bo Bunny travel word book that I started at a class much earlier in the year so I will add photos of that soon,

It's nearly Christmas..........

It's nearly Christmas and this year I really must try to take more photographs so that I have some photographs for Christmas layouts even if I have to persuade the family into a little photo shoot.
Until then here are a few layouts that I have finished recently.

This first one uses Heidi Grace papers (one of my favourites) and I particularly like the little birds which is an image that I have used quite often recently.The photograph was taken about 16 years ago at my nieces christening and it was the last time we saw my grandad.
The second layout features a photograph from around the same time and is of me and Matthew at a quiet spot in Maidstone. Again I have used Heidi Grace papers and the three little owl are a Papermania stamp.The writing on the photo is white pen written on a strip of acetate which I wrapped around the top of the photo.The third layout is using both sides of only one piece of patterned paper but at the moment I can't remember exactly which paper it is! As I look at the layout now I feel that the centre of the flowers need some extra embellishment, maybe some babyblue liquid pearls.I finished a little Christmas book recently at class at Scrapbook Sisters so I will post some photos of that as soon as I upload them to the computer.
