Summer's back!!

I've been out in the garden today, reading in the sunshine with two of the kids... it got so warm at one point that we all got in the paddling pool!!! Just glad we have a private garden!!!

Here's a page with images from last summer, it was the day before we went on holiday, and our plum tree was absolutely laden with fruit. I took loads of photos, and when I went to the Exhall crop last month this page designed by Claire was the perfect choice for so many pictures. The mini book is made from a second piece of 12x12 cardstock, folded and cleverly cut to make the booklet, it's ideal if you want to get lots of pictures onto one LO. I love the banner at the top too, they seem very trendy in scrapbooking at the moment. Mine is stitched on, and i curled the individual pennants and left the threads long at each end.

The papers are the lovely Dear Lizzy by AC, punched border at the bottom is Martha Stewart, and thickers by AC.

Planning to have a day out in the sunshine with the kids tomorrow, if we can get them out of bed that is!!

Love that layout - bunting is everywhere at the moment - I love it. How about a wee tutorial on making the mini book on the layout - I would love to know how to do that

Fantastic LO Ann, love the incorporation of so many pics. You seem to see something in papers that I don't, always enjoy your take.
