Make It Monday #2


Happy Monday to you all!

I have just had the best couple of days.

My brother who I have not seen for over 15 years arrived at my place with his family on Friday night. There was a big hug and lots of tears I can tell you. My boys have really enjoyed getting to know their cousins and we have all loved meeting my brother's wonderful girlfriend and we are so grateful to her as she was the one who organised this reunion.

I want to thank all the wonderful people who joined in my first "Make It Monday" last week. They were all wonderful creations and I had a terrible time to trying to choose one to feature this week so in the end I decided I would leave it up to

and that is

Dawn from Dawn's Craft Place with this layout.

This is a really fabulous layout don't you think?

Scrapbooking is something I have been wanting to get in to since my first son was born over 7 years ago but as yet I have not even started!

Dawn has been posting a lot of wonderful layouts lately.

I think she has done a beautiful job of capturing the atmosphere of her daughters cruise with the way she has presented the photos in this layout and I always love handwritten journaling on scrapbook pages. I think it adds a very personal touch.

Pop on over to Dawns blog and have a browse. There are a lot of really beautiful layouts and cards too.

The "Make It Monday" Linky Party is open again and you can link up your creation at the top of my blog.

Remember it can be any sort of creation and it doesn't have to be a new one. You can revive an old post if you like and it can be something that you made for other challenges. Just link it up so others can come and see your work and share in your creativity.

Please remember to link back here so that others can join in too.There is a button on my sidebar that you can grab if you would like to put it on your sidebar.

Each week I will randomly choose one of the submissions to feature the following week.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!

Congrats to Dawn!

How wonderful for your brother to visit you after so many years. Must have been so touching...

Sorry could not take part in the Make it Monday this week as I was away to Bali for a short holiday.

Sorry Michelle, I thought I had missed one Make it Monday but just realized that there is still time for it... so off I am to post a card.

I like the way you give so much freedom to post a card from the past or whatever...

hi there, I have dropped by to say that this will be my final visit to your blog for at least a few months, I am going abroad to get married, and coming back to moving house, settling down before I can come back online. I appreciate your kind comments and your visits to my blog, I will try to update it from time to time, but I can not promise. I will miss blogland, take care and catch up soon, from me - wondering if anyone will miss me in blogland...
