Here's my first ever 6 x 12 layout, i have decided to do all the boys baby photos this size as they look better, the photos back then seem to always be at a distance and small so on a 12 x 12 they get lost, i put a black peace of card behind it when i scan ed it in. Any tips from you girls that have done these sort of photos would be great.
I will post more as i go, might be useful for others with this problem.

Well finally on holiday waaahooo , we had a lovely lunch yesterday at work and received hampers
full of goodies, don't you love Christmas, you can eat and sleep lol .Went to the last Friday crop of the year last night what a laugh, we had a Christmas game were we worked as teams and had to do things in pairs , Kelly and i were the first 2 up in our team, we had to make a card, her using only her right hand and me using only my left, we were going great until we tried to tie a bow lol the next 2 had to wrap a parcel using right and left hands , with the last 2 one had to be a tree and the other person had to get all the decorations in there box attached to the (person) tree.I think every one had a great night.
I find that everything fits in my box when i leave home ,but when i pack it up to go the lid wont go back on, i finally realised why last night!!! i add to it lol.

Here's my entry ( a Fraze that gets used and passed on) in our family is I'M NOT AMUSED!!
I can remember my mum saying this to me and i used it heaps when the boys were teenagers,
I have been trying to scrap all my old photos i, i have a few really good shoots of my son running
around naked, they are actually some of the better ones, when he saw me scraping some he said" DON'T put that on the Internet" I'm not amused . Note the censored tag lol

I have an online friend, we play games together, chat, send each other cards and little gifts and have lots of laughs, we have been doing this for around 5 years now, shes from the Netherlands.
We first meet on a family gaming site called Pogo, she had joined to help her learn English, some times she got her words wrong and people would get inpatient, we had a lot of laughs and started meeting to play often and from here our friendship grew. At the moment her and hubby are on holiday in thailand, she sent me an e-mail asking for my phone number ( she had wonted to call before but i was to shy) can you believe it ME shy lol. Well tonight she called and we chatted like old friends, it was great to hear each others voices for the first time and we seamed to understand each other ok lol. It has just made my day, isn't it amazing that you can form such wonderful friendship with some that has never meet you.

This is my take on dare 35, the photos we took when our kids were small seam to be small and usually at a distance. I love these photos of my son as they show his facial expressions.He really was so irresistable as a baby .
This is the link for colour inspiration http://www.resene.co.nz/homeown/decorating_inspirations/89.htm

I submitted this layout to up2scrap magazine, the call was for a layout about a scrapbooking friend, I was thrilled when it was accepted.
I meet Sonia on the message board in trade me, she was so bubbly and full of life so you can imagine my surprise when i found out she was going through chemo for cancer.This LO is deducted to her as she was the person who inspired me to scrapbook. Sadly Sonia lost the battle , If you wont inspiration read her web site,this is my thank you to her.

I have had so much fun playing with photos i thought i would share some with you.
The top photo of my son i altered then added it to a back ground and faded the edges so
it would blend in with the moon, i call this on "MAN IN THE MOON" lol
The bottom one i added a rainbow and a pattered fade around the edges.
You can add any back ground you like
I did these using the free trial, if you would like to have a play go to this link
http://www.picget.net/dl-photo-editor/what.html Theres so many different
things you can do.
Now i have done a few the next steep in to get busy scraping them,but first i am going
to have a big sort out and reorganise my stash, i have brought some new containers and
a trolley with 5 large shelves, it also has wheels.
Would love to see your lay out if you use the photo editor.
thanks for visiting
