This Thursday - We're Getting A Round Tuit!!!!



How fun is this - We have received a little gift from This Thursday -



So we have to get going and get round to all the crafty projects we have been meaning to do but never quite got there - This was great for me because I FINALLY did a Scrapbook Page - Yaaay! AND I really enjoyed it. I hadn't done one for over a year and this was the push I needed.

This picture has been begging to be scrapped for years but I finally put it in a frame so today it's got pride of place in my Scrapbook. I think this is such a cool picture of my dad, taken - I think when he was in his twenties, probably when he was on leave from the Royal Navy. I really will have to ask him the story behind it!!

Hi Dawn, remember me?? :/ just trying to be a bit quick, as I'm really embarrased for not having visited you for such a long time... Well, now I've looked at all your latest creations, and I'm really impressed!! You make so many different cards and stuff...

And now a LO as well!!! And what a gorgeous one! Love that picture of your father, I think you look like him - handsome, both of you ;) The LO was so great for this picture, holy malony, you're talented!

Hope the evening will be a nice one! Here it's lovely Autumn weather (well, at the moment it's only dark *haha*)
Big hugs, Hanne:)

Nice LO. I've made one myself about my dad. He died 7 years ago and it took me 6 years to make the Layout.
I wish I could still ask him thinks. Still miss him.
