HAPPY NEW YEAR! Am I the last to say it?

Yes, it really has been that long since I blogged.  Had very good intentions for this year but they went the same way as the diet....again!

My little sis came home for Christmas but sadly had to return to Helmand for a couple more months.  I'd hoped to send her a few pages for her scrapbook in her frist post Christmas parcel but, and I know many of you may not be aware of this - we've had a little bit of inclement weather around here.  Blimey its been cold/snowy/icy, etc.  I've not been able to make it out to collect photos as that little bit of snow (ok it might have been more like 8 inches in my garden) caused no-end of problems.

So just the one LO to send out and it's taken me two evenings to finish it which is ridiculous because it's really quite a simple LO but I wanted it to be Christmassy without being CHRISTMASSY is you know what I mean.  Anyhow it's done now

The photo was tkane on the 20th of December when we all tripped down to London to see the real father Christmas!  We had a great time altho perhaps staying in the campervan in inches and inches of snow was not the best idea we've ever had!
Red background paper is the reverse of a sheet of Bazzill Bling - Ruby Slipper (what a waste but I couldn't find anything else in my stash that was the right colour)
