6 x 12

I did 2 more tonight, these are cool to do, much faster at this size. I think i am improving lol.
i scanned his plunket book and printed it on matching paper, i will do this every few pages as it has lots of information .

6 x 12 page 2

Ok here's page 2 , the photos are clearer when looking at them directly (not scanned) but as you can tell they are not the best photos ever taken lol but they are all i have of my baby's

Doing 6 x 12 layouts

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.

End of the year

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.

NZ DARE # 35 hybrid layout

I did this layout then scaned it and added digital lights,

on line friends

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.
