CONTIKI TOUR /EUROPE

My youngest son, Brendan, went on a Contiki trip last year June/July and enjoyed a very exciting and memorable holiday. Here are some of the layouts I did for his album; I included journalling space for him to write in. I mostly used Kaisercraft Pack Your Bags collection for the album. Colours and theme perfect!

a2zscraplets DT layouts 2011

Sharing some of the many layouts I did last year using 2azscaplet chipboard titles and shapes. Scrapbooking all these wonderful family memories brings me soooo much joy and satisfaction. It provides me the opportunity to relive those moments I cherish........




















A FAMILY PORTRAIT

This was our first professional family portrait after the birth of our third son, Brendan in 1991. I had this photo done in sepia to tone in with the papers. I love the quotation on it:
A FAMILY is where your heart feels most at home because you are always WANTED, always WELCOMED, always NEEDED, aways LOVED!

My lovely daughter-in-law!

Having completed so many layouts of my son, Shaun when he was young, I asked his wife for some photos of her in her childhood to include in their album. Here are a few of the layouts....she is such a cutie!!
