Thank you Annette..

..absolutely ages ago, I commented on some papers that Annette had on her WOYWW.  She was, inevitably, doing stuff to be admired, and I got frightfully excited about the papers and probably went on too much about them.  Especially as I couldn't find them.  Turns out I was looking for the wrong make.  Anyhoo, Annette sent me some of the papers to shut me up, which was too kind.  They are 8" pieces, and the one you see here, with 'Life is Good' printed on it was too much for me...I had to save it and save it and not use it, it was too erm, good.  And now I'm over it.  You may notice by now that I use shadow photos of me and Mr D a lot; I take one of us together wherever we go if it's meteorologically possible.  This isn't a great version - Mr D seems to have a very teeny head, and I am well, more mis-shapen than usual. Anyway, I matted it on red something or other, mounted it onto the lovely 8" paper and then chucked it on some other red 12".  The rest is tape and stickers.  The journalling, falling onto one (Basic Grey) sticker after another is one of my favourite ways of avoiding a big box of writing.  I learned it from Shimelle - she says it's alright to run out of room and carry on writing on some other piece of something.  And she's a true celebrity scrapbooker, so it must be OK.  And I like it.  And it stuck in my head, which means it must work! So Annette, here's what I did with one of the pieces you sent me.  Again, I thank you.

Great to have a friend like Annette! Fab layout, gorgeous paper and that photo is brilliant ... even if Mr D has the teeniest head ever :) Like the Shimelle journalling tip too. Elizabeth x

Annette is super that way. She is a real friend who would give a person the shirt off their back (or at least the last piece of scrapbook paper). I really, really like this layout and that paper is to die for. I can tell you two are so in love, something I've said for years now!
