Smile :o)

Just a quick page this evening - I needed to create something after struggling all evening with my borrowed Bind-it-all! I got there in the end (with thanks to Dan99 for a great video tutorial) and my pages and covers for my LSNED album are now punched which will save me making mistakes as to where to leave a binding gap like I did last week.

This page for September 17th shows that No.2 Son can smile for the camera when he wants a decent photo - this time he needed some passport sized photos to take to university for ID cards and such like.
I've used a sketch from Alix's Blog. She designed a brilliant page for her crop but was ill the day she was meant to teach the class, so didn't get to see the results. To make up for that she invited people to have a go via her blog.  I love her example page which is here - sooooo many brads used!  I cheated a bit and just used card backed sequins.

I've always been a fan of The Studio and recently discovered that they have a sister site Scrap That! which reviews products.  I wondered if they would be generally favourable to the products that they are given to review, but was pleasantly surprised to discover that the cons are discussed along with the pros, giving you a better idea of whether the product would suit or not.  They have a give-away running at present - see my Candy & Competitions section in the sidebar.
