The last time...

The last time I made a scrapbook page was July 5th 2008 - I know it was this date because it was when Justin was at Silverstone for the British Grand Prix (plus it's the date that I wrote on the back of that page!). So anyway... I printed these two photos last night and turned them to greyscale, and like them, so decided to scrap them today, and here's the result.
I used my Cricut Expressions machine to cut the text and shadow the word Boy. The Summer Holiday text was done by first using the Cricut pens to draw the letters and then got it to cut out the letters leaving them outlined in the blue pen. I do love this machine!! I used the Storybook cartridge for the letters and the little tumbling hearts.
In the first photo, Matthew is having a stroll along Instow beach on the first night of our holiday to North Devon. We stayed with Justin's dad and step mum in Fremington. In the second photo Matthew is sitting on Ilfracombe Harbour wall eating chips... we got told off by the Town Crier for feeding the seagulls, lol. Justin should have known this being as he lived here before moving in with me ten years ago!
Click on the photo to get a better view.

The picture below was taken yesterday afternoon. We have a balloon hire place a few miles up the road in a village called Pidley - funny name, I know... at least I think it's Pidley they're based in.

If anyone knows any scrapbooking blogs, can you post their link in the comments please? I seem to only know of Australian ones, not that there's anything wrong with that of course, lol.
Thanks x
