ta da...

I did say I would scrap today, and I did manage to get a grand total of 1 layout completed.pretty plain, but basically thats what I wanted.This page is about how I got the nickname dongy.Again took me longer than planned , as fart assed around between the laptop, and the desktop, and sometimes computers just dont do what they should do.Notice I did get to use some pink!that was different!
Also had a bit of a sort through my photos and albums, and omigosh that was a task. actually most of it is still in piles on the loungeroom floor [tomorrows job].I have some of my old photos that I have mutilated, as when I first tried scrapping the oval cutters were all the go, so many of them have been cut into ovals.Also writing on the photos...my gosh why did I do it!!So annoyed that I did that.I also have some really really tragic pages,that I did when I first began to dabble with scrapping, they are so bad that I think I will attempt to redo them....but such a big job that will be....so maybe someday.Not that I think my pages are wonderful or anything like it but I do think I have improved since I did those.
Anyway looks like another crap day tomorrow, and Im not working till friday, so maybe another layout tomorrow.

Nite.

I really like your use of a small photo and how you've used it to tell a story about you, and not necessarily about that day or time or place etc that the photo was taken.

Thanks for your comment on my blog - I'll get to posting some of the recipes in the next few days, including the ice cream bar one.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Twilight! Never thought I would, but I do. Finished the first one yesterday at lunchtime after starting it on Sunday! On to New Moon today!

Love that story! The red stitching really sets it all off.
I've got a set of those oval cutters too with the matching cringe-able pages - eek! They were one of my very first scrapping purchases and I was so keen to use them!
Thanks so much for your lovely comments too, it's really sweet of you :)

Love your page Maryanne, being a person who didn't really get a nickname I love to hear how others got theirs. Love the font used and the story. A simple but very effective layout well done I like it. Nice for you to get the opportunity to use pink too, a colour I rarely get away from as you could imagine!!! Tracey W.
