Im still here! Just Scrapbooking for a change.

Hi Everyone, I just thought I should let you know that i havent dissapeared.....Im working on a 40 page scrapbook with my daughter Hannah.
Its to celebrate our Holiday in Disneyland Paris back in October for the 15th year celebrations.
We both Scrapbook but we wanted to create this book together ...a joint effort.
My scrapbooking has taken a back seat lately for atc's but Im really enjoying being back making pages again. They are all 12 x 12 and it feels very strange having a large area to cover instead of an atc.
We took 700 photos when we were there, so we had loads to choose from. I had all the photos printed and put in albums and then got 70 printed again to work with....A costly business, but worth it.
I will put up a slideshow of the book when it is finished. Hopefully by next weekend at the rate im going. I did 6 pages yesterday, but im loving it. Hope everyone has a great Bank Holiday, x

Dear Jaqi,
You are such a dear! I received your mailer yesterday and I don't think I have ever seen anything more beautiful. I'm going over to see mother later this morning to give her the package. I've photographed it so that I can put it on my blog and share it with everyone on the net today. It's going to be so pretty in her room.
Thank you for making such sweet things for her. The ATC is absolutely gorgeous, but the little booklet of tags was even more surprising and beautiful. The tags can be used one by one as we give her special gifts. I just can't thank you enough for your thoughtfulness. I can't...I'm gushing. Thank you.
