This Week in Scrapbooking

I've been working on more of the layouts in Rowan's Christmas album this week, Artscow (a printing website) have a 50% off sale on photobooks at the moment to be used before the 31st of December, so I'm attempting to get it all done. Besides, I don't want to be scrapping about Christmas in April, anyway! ;)

Here's a few of the layouts I've completed recently:

We Skyped on Christmas morning with my hubby's family so they could see their first grandchild open gifts. It was pretty cool connecting the laptop up to the TV so we could see their faces easily. :)
Merry & Bright Bundle - by Designs by Kat
Fonts: Eight Fifteen [titlework] and Courier New [journalling]

Rowan (8 months old) has his first-ever picture with Santa. We'll ignore the fact that he cried immediately following the photo though. ;)
Kit: Christmas Blessings - by Captivated Visions & Litabells Designs
Template: Ianthine Templates - by Scrapping with Liz
Scribbles Alpha - by Chelle's Creations
Fonts: Howser [title] and The Great Escape [journalling]

Journalling reads: "When you started teething again during December, the race was on... what would come first: Christmas or your two top front teeth? Tooth #3 came down during early December and tooth #4 finally came in with 3 days to spare - phew!! You were so miserable cutting that fourth tooth, and are happy to see you back to your happy, smiling self!"

Christmas Day itself was quite eventful, will be back shortly with a proper recap of what turned out to be a day to remember!


  1. love that you skyped Christmas!!! My parents bought us a webcam for xmas so that I can skype with MY grandparents in England. I hope I can get it to work since my laptop has been messing with me lately!

    Can't wait to read the full story of Rowan's first Christmas!
    I too joked that all A wanted was her two front of them is cut but still pretty deep in the gum...the other is there but working a little slower.

  2. Now that both teeth have cut through, they're coming down REALLY quickly! Unevenly though, since there was about two weeks between them (very cute :P). When he smiles, you can see a bit of one of the teeth now. :)

    Definitely got some stories to tell about Christmas, including a hailstorm with golfball-sized chunks of ice and a tornado warning issued!!

    P.S. - Skyping is fantastic, I'd never done it up until a few months ago, but seeing Rowan's face light up as he recognises relatives is brilliant. :)
