A.W.O.L Apologise's!

Well firstly I would like to apologise for being A.W.O.L for so long... I would love to say that it's because I have been extremely busy crafting, but that would be a lie... I hadn't done any crafting until Tuesday this week!
I think with the end of yet another year on it's way and with still so many family hassles going on I found myself turning inwards to try and digest it all, which entailed a slow descent back into depression... and I thought I was handling everything so well too!
I've still got lots of problems with the boys school and family etc but I'm back and not plan on going down that track again any time soon!
Ok... so I have done the 'T' and 'Y' letters of the boys A-Z albums but can only show you the 'Y' layout as i've a spelling mistake to correct on the 'T'... I missed a k but will be easily rectified!

I used the sketch from but had to adapt for an 8x8 layout... hope you like it... A bit brighter and more dimension than my normal style and I love how all the papers just fell into place with the photo's!

Calum... Y for Yummy!
Thomas... Y for Yummy!

DCWV Yellow Cardstock
White scalloped paper, I did this myself by using Monica's Tutorial which you can find in her video bar!
Stampin' Up Spiced Cider for the orange with green spots background!
A piece of white paper for circle, drawn using compass and then hand cut!
The stripey paper is October Afternoon (I think) from a Scrapagogo!
Light Blue DCWV Cardstock
Dark Blue DCWV Cardstock
Title is done using Doodlebug, Loopy Lou from a Scrapagogo Kit
Scalloped white paper using a punch and then the embellishment is Provo Craft!
I hope to be back a bit later with the fixed layout 'T'!
Hope you all are having a wonderful December!
