Ok I said I was going to do Yolande's orange challenge ...............mmm how long ago was that????
Well as we all know I have had a few interruptions - a tirp to Perth + a visit to Starship with T.
So at last I have finished this LO. Ok its not total orange but its got orange in it. The only thing I have to add is the date. One of Finn.

and the other challenge I have taken on is Lianne's - share your very first LO + then your lastest. So my first LO was of course a Creative Memories. I remember being so excited after doing this page + couldn't wait to show Finn. This was back in March 2003. Don't you just love the triangle in the corner.........mmmmmm nice!!!

Ok for my lastest LO. I started this LO while in hospital with T. YES even took my tote + BIG thanks to my SUPER MIL Shirl (what a life saver that woman is + the best mil in the world). Ok funny story about the Heidi Swapp hearts. When I came through customs at Auckland airport the guy scanning the bags asked if I had chocolate hearts in my bag. After explaining what they were to him he still didn't get it!!!! About this LO firstly i have had that pp for nearly a year saving it for a special page for Kev + then of course that photo is a nearly a year old too. I was just waiting for the right bits + peices - the chocolate hearts and some new chipboard letters. And here we have a speical page about 2 speical guys in my life, Kev + Taidhg.

I hope everyones Waitangi Day is great!!!! I have had a lovely day of scrappin + the 2 older kids are nextdoor at Super Mil's. And yay another short week!

Wow cool layouts -you have been busy...your first CM is a goodie - I remember mine too but I have torn mine apart {bad exerience!} might have to share my second one - yip I went back for more! LOL. I so want some of them HS Hearts too. Funny about that paper - I have it saved in my stash too...maybe I should break it out and use it. Thanks for the inspiration - I think my next challenge will be to use that paper.

Hi Rach, love the 'orange' page too, esp. the tile. LOL at the CM page - my first page was not a CM one but I still pulled it apart and re-did it, along with about 10 others!

I love the orange layout really lovely, and what a difference with your first page to now. Rach you do great work. LOVE IT.

snap I have that paper in my stach too, only I think mine is the pink/green one... still looks the same though. Good idea making it into a chalange Yolande.
Love the orange page and your first page too...I wonder how many people actually started off with doing creative memories ?
