My baby is home!

Woot! (as my boys would say). I arrived home from a loooong meeting yesterday to discover that my CJ had arrived in the post. Oh it is fantastic to see all the hard work everyone has put into it.
Do you want to see it too?
Or hear about the family walk in the mud where Carys had so much fun squelching that she fell over?
OK, Cj it is then... And watch out eyes cos I'm going LARGE with the piccies!

My cover and intro pages are all Cosmo Cricket Wanted. I must say it all looks so much better with lots of ribbons sticking out all over the place rather than the rather bare version i sent out. And someone added ickle bells. Just perfick!

and my double layout. well it is really two layouts cos I picked two songs that tell something of my life.
Here is the pull out tag for Dancing Queen
and the slightly dark close up of the RHside
If only I had known in 1988 that cream and peach would be so horrid to scrap with in 2007. Still at least we still look at each other that way. Sometimes :)

And then all the fabby pages from my CJ buddies. First up was Net...
here is her tag
I just love all those fresh colours!
then we have Rachel
with lots of little pockets and pull outs and lists of hundreds of songs that got me singing along!
Alba jane - with her wonderful stories of Elvis
And sue W who did a super quick turnaround
and still manged to fit in a tiny little Maze book which is (cough) amazing - look!
All that is left for you to look at is the sing in page - well i mean sign in but hopefully you are singing by now...
and the back
Phil had an MandS hamper for Christmas from his Church and the hamper fits 12x12 albums in beautifully. It's a lovely place to store all the bits that I have done - albums and little books and all. So my CJ is now in my hamper of goodies ready for me to look at every day! (And I will).
Thanks again Team 1 - it has been such fun.
