Scrap Pile DT layouts

It's now officially the first... [of December], so that means it time for new Design Team layouts at Scrap Pile :) DT layouts are loaded 1st and 15th. This month I got to be a 1st girl LOL. So this is my layout using the gorgeous Daisy D's Christmas kit in Red. This is Ethan last Christmas... awwww he was 10 months old, so I had to stand him against a chair to take his pic as he wasn't walking yet. How things change in a year huh!

Then it was also my turn to set the monthly challenge...

This month challenge is to scrap a Christmas photo that is at least 5 years old. We just scraped in here, this was taken on 1st December 2001. Liam was almost four weeks old and we had to get Brett's parents to come over and babysit him so we could put up the tree. He was such an unsettled little thing at this time... which we worked out about the next day, was because he was STARVING! Mumma's boobies were disfunctional or somethig lol. Ahhh it all seemed so easy in my memory, but when I really remember those first few weeks... it SO WAS NOT EASY! He looks pretty content there doesn't he? Well he'd just had his first bottle from memory... and I had long hair. And Brett looks about 15 LOL Can we really age that much in 5 years? We'll put that down to lack of sleep [she says as she types away on her blog at 1.10am!]

OK, point was, I loved the Daisy D kit, so I used it for both layouts. Check out Scrap Pile for more details. Enter a layout in the challenge for a chance to win a prize :) Go peek... I'll make it easy for you... here!

Now I need to go sleep. Night!

The layouts are both stunning! But my favourite is the top one! What an adorable little picture. I think we're going to have to have some shots of Ashton like that this Christmas. She is 8 months, so not walking yet.
Bet you are looking forward to this christmas?! :o)
Love ~*Gems*~ xx

I think the long hair makes you look younger if you don't want to age.....grow it out again....LOL!
No you look great now....short hair suits you!

Oh yum, yum, yum. Love that paper! And I love the pages you've put together with it. Just simply stunning. Can I gush any more ;). I had to laugh when I looked at the LO of Ethan, coz that's just where we are at the moment! A friend just gave Jamie a little furry Xmas hat and I'll have to stand him up against a chair to take photos too, lol! So, I guess reading your comment, my life is about to change radically?
See ya
