A couple more...

Just popping on to upload a couple more LOs.

This one's a scraplift I did a week or so ago. The pictures were taken of me by my friend Rachel (thanks Rachel) on the Leeds Paper Dolls weekend crop in Cumbria. And I finally used the lovely new Blue Awning papers too.

And this one's another scraplift of a LO in Scrapbook Trends magazine. My dh took the pictures of our son while visiting the park a couple of weeks ago, and the subject is his new-found voice and all the questions he asks now he can talk really well. I can't believe how fast he's growing up, sob!

Got to go, back soon!

Paris and scrapping frenzy!

We are back in the UK after five wonderful but totally exhausting days staying in Paris with an old school friend. It was scorching hot every day (and night!) and we spent most of it walking, round Paris, round parks, round zoos and round Euro Disney. Harry loved it and we all had a great time.

Despite only getting back in the late hours of Wednesday, I have already completed a mini album of our trip. It's a 6x6 acrylic album full of photos, journalling and mementoes such as tickets and receipts - it's the first time I've scrapped onto acrylic and I have decided I really like it and want to do some larger LOs now.

Anyway, here it is. Sorry about the poor photo quality but it's almost dark, I couldn't find the DSLR and if I don't upload these now I'll never get round to doing it!

So what else is new? Not much really. Baby is now very active and enjoying kicking poor mummy quite hard frequently. Harry is talking really fluently and we just can't shut him up! Not that we would want to of course! But I just can't believe the progress he has made in just a couple of months. We took him to see Wall.E today having seen the trailer at Euro Disney - it was his first cinema outing and he behaved really well, so we'll have to try and go a few more times before the baby is born and the three of us become four - scary thought! And only about 14 weeks to go, eeeeeek! I really must get caught up on the rest of my scrapping, oh, and get the nursery decorated. So much to do, so little time!
