Scrapbooking Trend

I had the opportunity to scrapbook on the weekend - a rare occurrence nowadays. I managed to produce the second layout for the year so far.*

I took the photos on January 23rd and printed them out that day! Then they sat there somewhere in the vicinity of my questionable scrapbooking space until the moment I decided that I wanted to scrap a picture of my grandson and couldn't find a decent current photo of him. So I went with the already-printed photos of Susannah having fun posing with a breadstick.

I took immediate inspiration from Nic Howard and Amy Martin on the Aussie Scrap Source blog.

I had to take the photo of the layout with my phone because we (the royal) have lost the charger and spare battery for my Canon 400D and I haven't bought another one yet.

*Maybe the number of layouts I produce is a gauge of how simple/complicated my life is. Let's take a look at a graph of the number of layouts I did in the first quarter of each year since 2006.

I just spent an inordinate amount of time trying to work out Excel and, in the end, had to get Soph to help. Grrrr. Hennyway, as you can see, the number of layouts I actually produce has reduced drastically over the years.
