Update on Scrapbooking and life!

Lots to update about the last month for me. Cyril and I had company in our lil flat for 2 weeks at the end of March!! We had my parents come for a visit! We had a great time with them and I hope that they enjoyed their visit as well. It started with me taking the train down to London to pick them up at the airport. We then toured for the day around London to see all the famous sites. Here they are in front of the Buckingham Palace during the end of the changing of the guard.

We then proceeded on to have lunch at a little Sandwich place called Pickles! Great food by the way. We then took a little walk on to see Westminster Abbey (pictured below), the Parliment, Big Ben and the London Eye. We stayed the night in a hotel and the next day took the train up to Newcastle where Cyril greeted us.We visited in Newcastle for a few days while I worked as well and Cyril played tour guide. We then trotted off to Dublin, Ireland for a few nights. We stayed in the city at a really nice hotel and took the tram in to the centre of the city as needed. The first day Mom and I went to visit the National Museum of Decorating Arts and History while Cyril and Dad went to the Guinness Factory for a tour. We hate out twice at this pub (Fitzgerald's). It had really good food and was also well priced.
On our second day in Dublin Mom and I took a tour of the Long Room at Trinity College and got to see the Book of Kells.
Mom and Dad were in Dublin one more day while Cyril and I headed up to Belfast to visit for a day. Upon returning back to Newcastle Mom and Dad wen to visit the Life Museum, visited the coast and also took a trip up to Edinburgh for a day. I worked a bit but had a Easter Sunday off to spend with everyone. Dad made his yummy chicken curry for our Easter Supper! Yummmmmy!

Scrapbooking now!
This first page was done for APOS, a Blind Scrap. I'm given directions about the sizes of the paper and bit about the placement and voila...this is out came about!
This next page was done for the Scrapbuilders Challenge at APOS for the month of March.

A challenge from APOS to copy or "scraplift" one of your previous Layouts.

This too was a page for Scrapbuilders in March for another team.

During March APOS held a Weekend Crop so there was some challenges posted for those of us who were left behind. The challenge was to pick a number which then corresponded to a topic in the Technique section. We then either had to do the technique or project, use the title of the topic or use something about that post. I took the title of the topic (Next Year) and used it in my title. This year (2009) we were in Boston for our Honeymoon, Next year (2010) we will be in Greece to celebrate our 1 year anniversary.

I've done all my cleaning for the week!!! So now I can spend the rest of today(Sunday) and tomorrow doing some scrapbooking, card making and tag making! I will hopefully post some of the work this week. Wish me luck! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
