It's taken me 5.5 years to scrap!

I'm talking about the Disneyland Paris scrapbook page... these photo's are from our Christmas time trip in 2006. I've only made a few of the pages so far... Justin bought me a gorgeous Disney scrapbook album, and papers set, so I really do need to scrap some more of them.
The picture isn't very good - it was taken with my phone (a Samsung Galaxy S).

The page below is the last of Christmas 2010. The large cracker in the centre opens up showing more of our presents... we got loads!

4 hours!

That’s how long it took me to create this double scrapbook layout. I really enjoyed making it. I had a lot of fun.
I used papers from Bo Bunny and My Mind’s Eye. Embellishments from various packs laying around. I made the little pocket and put some tags inside. I glittered lots of things too.
The next page I need to do is the presents… I’m going to have to put some hidden, or folding out or something… I was meant to do the Christmas Dinner layout as a single page, but it turned into a double, so there’s a single page needing a layout now.

A REAL scrapook page!

I decided it was time that I made another real paper scrapbook page, instead of digital. I love the touchy feely of "real". The digital layouts are great too, and they look fab in the 8x8 album I've put them in now that they've been printed.
Anyway... here's a page I created this afternoon. I used Bazzill Basics plain cardstock, My Mind's Eye, and Daisy D's patterend papers. Added embellishments from Do Crafts Silent Night range.

 A close up trying to show the glitter around the lettering... although it wasn't dry lol, so looks a bit gloopy.

The Aquarium... an overhaul.
It was about time. We needed to restock the tank so we decided on Friday to go and buy some more fish. The photo's below don't really show the fish very well, and I don't think you can even see my favourite, Kribensis... The Sailfin Mollies are nice too. The tank has 16 fish in it... although a lot of them are hiding in these pics as they'd only just been put in lol.
