Off to a good start!

The New Year started really well, scrapping wise.
I have completed 2 layouts in 2 days - woohoo!
I'm happy to say that I can share one of them with you,
while the other one is off to Scrapbooking Memories (to be seen in a few months time).
Each year, we make gingerbread and decorate them.
I have Nicole to thank for this lovely tradition. I saw them on her blog a couple of years back and she generously gave me her recipe.
We have great fun baking them and it always makes for a fun page
full of detailed photos and a little story.
This year, due to a lack of time, I bought the gingerbread from IKEA already baked and we decorated them with Royal Icing - they looked less perfect than previous years only because we all had a real play at decorating them - and I love that!

Apart from scrapping this year, I'm looking forward to booking lots of photography sessions.
I'll be heading to Sydney in 9 days time to do just that.
If you'd like to see some of my favourite photos from 2009 sessions,
take a look over at my Photography Site ....
Best wishes for a Happy, Safe and Healthy New Year!
