Still loving those PJ's!!

I absolutely love this photo of Georgia and Ben and couldn't wait to scrap it. It hasn't turned out as well as I expected and I'm not overly pleased with it but I'm pretty sure I'll scrap it again one day....maybe in black and white next time with a more vintage feel. So yes thats why I am still doing Xmas layouts!! If at first you don't suceed try, try and try again!! I guess that's one of the best things about scrapbooking you can just start again!!

Did you know that I bought Bens vest expecially to take a photograph like this! (thats the scrapper in me). I couldn't justify a cute christmas costume and none of them were very nice but I fell in love with the soft fluffy reindeer on this babygrow!

Chipboard alpha Making Memories-St Nick, Bazzil bling cardstock-green, red cardstock from Tillys-unbranded, Bazzil, Prima and other assorted flowers, Hot water bottle from a Xmas Card 2 years ago and the pretty paper doily from my MIL-I knew there was a reason we went for lunch the other day!!

Thanks for looking and hello to everyone who has joined my followers list. I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs now that I know who you are!!

Love and lacy doilies Ruth xxx

I can't see one thing wrong with this LO. I think it's perfect. Love the doily, the flowers, the photo (too cute), the pp and the turned over corner. I tell you Ruth, it ALL perfect.
Cheers, Irene :)

Isn't it strange how, for you, this hasn't hit the mark yet to me it looks great - you've picked up the outfit perfectly with the papers.

As a matter of interest, when you scrap an image a couple (or more) times, do you put them in the same album and if yes, do you put them side by side or spaced out between other layouts?
