Hi all I hope you are well,
Yesterday I found a photo album I though was lost, it had photos of DD when she was a baby we don't have many photos of DS as a baby we didn't have a camera then, looking a the photos it bought back tons of memories both good and bad, there is a photo of DD's first Christmas which is lovely but we where burgled just before Christmas that year and we had tons of trouble when we lived in that house it was in a really rough area, it was a shame as it was only a handful of people that ruined it for most of the residents, the whole area is now boarded up waiting for demolition. But any how it means more photos to scrap.

The LO is finished at last what a pain it was it started out with a paisly paper on it but it felt wrong so I changed that and went for SEI paper which I have had since I started scrapping properly and as I said yesterday hand cut away the background so my chosen backing card showed through but the making thing easy for myself is not an option.The titling was from die cuts I hadn't used for ages and I was thinking of offering them as a swap but once again hoarding stuff pays off. And yes we did fill and inflatable dingy with water and use it as a paddling pool for the kids it worked well and it lasted longer than any shop bought pool we had bought.

I'm not to sure what I am going to do next I have a few things in mind the canvas, another birds house and definenatly another little bird(by the way I am redoing my nani birds as the double sided tape I use has unstuck so glue it will have to be.) and then I have a ton of photos to scrap.

Take care and thanks for looking.
