Playing catch up.... again

Well I haven't been in here for over a week though I have been scrapping a lot.
Yesterday I went into town with my daughter in law, Gemma she wanted to get Rufus weighed and afterwards we went for a lunch, walked down the hill and through Queens park back into town. Rufus now weighs 19lb 9oz so he is doing very well.

I haven't many photos of Benjamin so am probably scrapping the same ones over again but I did want to make a 12x12 album of him.
Precious Moment
Smallest Heart Tugger

The monthly challenge on UKScrappers this month is
Imagine you were given a whole extra day to do exactly what you wanted with no worries about family, household chores, money or work. How would you spend your day? Would you revisit an old holiday destination, go back to a special moment in time, or to a place that holds special memories ... or would you do something totally new to you.
most of the ones that have been done have gone back in time to a holiday that was special and I am no exception although I have also incorporated a holiday I hope will come at the end of this year to celebrate my 70th birthday.
Edinburgh Dream
I have kept this one large as the journalling is the most important part (if you click on it you will be able to see it all)

Last Saturday I had not been in long from my crop morning at Abbey Meads Scrappers, when Gemma called in, she said they were about to go out for a late lunch early dinner at the Cold Harbour in Blunsdon and would I like to come, would I just, it is so nice to have an unexpected invite like that so quickly switching off the computer and grabbing my bag, camera and coat I was ready.
I took quite a lot of photos of Rufus while we were waiting to be served and here is the resulting layout, done for this week's challenge on UKScrappers the main criteria of the challenge was to have the title as a question, and once again I have the perfect photos taken just recently. I am amazed at how often that happens
Wot we gonna have Daddy

over the last few days I have been fiddling with a scraplift, a challenge in Scrapbook Magazine this month, I did manage to do it digitally but it looked too crowded so I pulled it apart and just used some of the elements to create this page
Sweet child of mine

You have been busy Mary, and they are all beautiful LOs. You can really see the resemblance between Helen and Daniel!

Lots of gorgeous LO's as always Mary, they are all beautiful :)

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
