Happy New Year! I didn't realise I had been MIA for so long. Christmas does that doesn't it - steals a whole month of your life away! I've been scrapping as much as usual but can't share 5 of my pages until I know which ones Sarah chose for the Sarahscards January Kit booklet. The kit was lovely and I still have enough of it to scrap a few more pages! Value for ££ :)

I scrapped this page way before Christmas but forgot to blog it. It's my fabulous in-laws with the boys when we were in Scotland in August. We really are lucky to have them. They look after the boys when I am at work and are on hand to babysit the odd time The Husband and I actually go out together. The papers are old MME ones called "Bloom and Grow" and the bird stamp was from a Scarlett Lime kit I got eons ago and have never used. Can you spot my favourite alpha trick? Using a substitute for a letter when I have run out? Answers on a postcard...
 This is the start of my New Year Scrapping Resolution. I used to take part in "12 of 12" that was a free to join in scrapping challenge. It seems to have been taken over and commercialised (sp?) so I'm just making my own version up. I am going to take photos of all the mundane "stuff" we do on or around the first of each month then scrap the photos. This is (obviously) 1.1.12. I love, love, love these papers - American Craft Amy Tangerine from Sarahscards.
 Lastly, this is a page I had thought about and started but then put aside to focus on Sarahs January kit. I thought the papers were Fancy Pants but they say "Scrap Within Reach" on them "Paper Boy" range. Anyway, it is Josh and his class mascot on a bike ride. There are a few Elle's Studio bits on there too.
So, that's me officially caught up on here until I can blogg the kit LO's.
