Finally a layout to share

I know! How long has it been?

I have been quite crafty lately but more with Project Life to be honest. I will get around to posting some photos of that this week too.

I have completely run out of my Studio Calico January kit and am now making decent dents in my February kit as well. I am really enjoying the February kit. It has a lot of the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line from American Crafts which I love. I have also picked up a few additional pieces from the line at my LSS so I am well stocked with embellies and paper that all go together beautifully.

The layout I am sharing today is from our babymoon to the US in September 2009. It was supposed to be just a holiday when we booked it but we found out I was pregnant in between booking and going on the trip. We had a fabulous trip and drove 3000 miles in the 12 days we were there. This photo is from the early part of the trip when we spent a few hours in Santa Monica before we took the scenic route north to my friend, Tina in Berkley.

There is a little bit of concealed journalling behind the picture. You can see the tab sticking out to the right. It reads: So happy and in love. Our longed for trip to the US with our 18 weeks along baby in tow. I felt Scarlett kick for the first time the previous night. Life was good. Santa Monica CA Sept 2009.

I am currently taking Shimelle Laine's Hitchhiker's Guide to Scrapbooking class over at Two Peas and I am really enjoying it. This layout is based on one of her starting points from this class. I love these as I can go as elaborate or simple as I like but remain safe in the knowledge that the essential proportions of the page will be correct. 

Please let me know if you have any questions about the products used or indeed Shimelle's class. I am just finishing off a second layout based on another starting point which I hope to share tomorrow.

Thank you all so much for your kind messages regarding Scarlett's health. I have the loveliest readers! She is definitely much better but still not perfect and certainly not her usual happy self. We have delayed her first day of pre school until Friday and fingers crossed she will be well enough to really enjoy it by then.
