I Have Returned

But I haven't really been anywhere! The weather here has been so bad, we were issued with a hosepipe ban because there was a drought and since then it hasn't stopped raining!  I love the rain but the battle to get to work through traffic and floods has been wearing me out.  So, I've been coming home and crashing on the sofa!

I have managed to get some scrapping in though and thought I'd share a layout or two now.
I've been slowly working through my photos from Christmas.  As yet I haven't actually used any Christmas papers, I'm concentrating more on the people rather than the time of the year.  This is a layout of my brother and his son.
And I'm really pleased with how I used up my scraps of paper.

Next up is a very rare photo of me and Maddie together!
I've been trying to come up with quick and simple layouts to get stash used up and the pictures in my albums.
And I've been pleased with my efforts so far.

I'm going to spend a lazy evening catching up on blog reading and looking forward to it being Friday tomorrow :)

Thank you for stopping by

We've been watching the flooding on the news - it looks terrible! I hope you get a bit of respite over the weekend. Looks like the rain hasn't stopped the creatvity though :)
