Cutty Sark

The other day whilst I was searching for something I came across an envelope containing a few photographs that I had had reprinted (you know how it is) some time ago.  As I had been wanting to do a scrapbook layout, I decided to use these photos, even though I have a couple of cards that I need to make far more urgently, but sometimes you just have to go with what you are inspired to make!

I needed to refer back to my old diaries to find the exact date - and I was surprised that it was nearly nine years ago!  Obviously my babies have grown up A LOT but that's not really surprising since Alex was 8 and Hayden wasn't even 5 when these photos were taken, and now they are both 6' feet tall.  Sigh.  I remember the day quite clearly although I had forgotten that we did those other things all on that same day, I had remembered the London Eye flight as a separate occasion!  Thank goodness I have kept all those old diaries.

I used my TK Maxx bargain We R Memory Keepers papers "Blue Vintage" (£3 for about 8 papers, the pink flock ribbon and a little pack of glitter brads - on the flock ribbon).  Maybe the page is a little girly since it features Hayden, but I just had to pick out the pink of Alex's jumper.

I enjoyed doing this page, even if it did take ages of shuffling bits of paper around, and since I found a few other photos along with these, I might just have to do another scrapbook page soon ...

    They do grow up sooooo quickly. My tiny baby is now over 6ft tall and using me as an arm rest (I'm only 5ft tall!).

    p.s. it's not too girly - I had to go back and look again to see the pink- the blue really stands out and I think it's a great colour combo xx
