I finished the cover to my book of me last night too, and thought it would be fun to put an Art Doll of me on the front LOL. I am quite pleased with the result, although it does look a bit scary with my head on it LOL. I want to put some ribbons on the spine too, but will wait till its a bit fuller so I can guage it a bit better.
Oh, and can you guess that my favourite colour is purple....??!!!! And I like stickles....

... and I came up with this 12 x 6 layout, of my Mum - before she was a Mum, before she was a wife, in the late 1960's. Its not the greatest photo ever taken, but my Dad has never been known as the greatest photographer in the world - and I have some corkers to prove it!!
I used the Sassafrass Lass kit from the Scrummy Stash cafe again, the chipboard frame was in the kit, and I just covered it with patterned paper and distressed it with sand paper. The rub ons are Creative Imaginations.

... and I have been playing!!
The top card is Prezzibella, and the second card is PMSabella LOL. These stamps are fantastic to work with, they produce lovely crisp images... hard to stamp a bad image to be honest!
I got my 12 x 6 albums in the post today, and they look fab, can't wait to start to fill them. I have been sorting through my mountain of new photos, trying to sort them into some kind of order, and failing miserably. I have a lot of my Dad, throughout the ages LOL, as I am planning a special album for his 60th birthday ( a 12x 6 :D) There are so many lovely pictures of me as a baby/toddler, and its not often you'll hear "lovely photo" and "me" in the same sentence, as I am truly the most un-photogenic person on the planet! But as a 2 yr old I was adorable, awww! So I am quite looking forward to creating some pages with those pics!
I also was a bit brave today, and went and made a slide show of my favourite layouts. I can't believe how many favourites I have LOL.

Look at all the goodies I got!! I went to visit my local scrapshop - Papercrafts (they have a website http://www.funkykits.co.uk/ ) - to catch up with my friend Mrs Mac, and to see what new stuff she has got in since I last visited. Well I had to have some Bella stamps...and some other stamps... and of course a new album for my holiday LOs ...oh and some other stuff just fell into my arms!! And in honour of Tinks I bought something pink ;)
No stash parcels waiting at home though, but I did get some more photos LOL.
I can't wait to play with my new stuff ...

Managed to upload another large order from Photobox - of all my heritage photos, and all the slides I scanned in when my parents were up in June (all my baby photos are slides, and I am now lucky enough to have the first photograph taken of me aged 3 weeks.) I am also waiting on another photo order to arrive, to update our normal photo albums plus a few enlargements for me to scrap! So when they all arrive I will have no excuse whatsoever to get the paper and glue out!
I am also waiting on some 12 x 6 albums - I ordered a red one to do for my Dad as a 60th birthday pressie, and 2 for me (one vertical, one horizontal) as I really do fancy experimenting with this size. I have fun with the 8.5 x 11's I do, and as I have a lot of 6 x 4 photos, this size is perfect if I only have a single photo. Multi photo LOs still tend to be 12 x 12...

The card is prism, the paper is Christina Cole, the chipboard is Heidi Swapp and I used my trusty white gel pen for the journalling.

I know, its a shock isn't it LOL. This is a LO I had in the pipeline before I went away, it is something I have wanted to do for a while...
The papers are Sassafrass lass, the chipboard is scenic route, inked (and the letters are glittered with Stickles glitter glue), a couple of primas, and a couple of brads, and voila, one LO!!
And can you see, I scraplifted myself.... I loved the Tom @ 5 one so much I scraplifted it!!

Got back on Thursday, so I am suffering with jet lag right now.
Took lots of photographs, and I found a great stash shop too, so I hope to share some of my pages with you over the next few weeks! I just have to get my body clock back to UK time instead of it being somewhere in the Pacific.....
