Been to the opticians to have contact lenses fitted today, this is my third attempt - twice I've had to abort my plans due to outside factors. I've opted for monthly lenses this time instead of dailies and must say they are a tad more uncomfortable but I'm sure I'll get used to them and if I don't I can always swap to dailies.

Another layout to share with you tonight, I managed to do this one last night in My Memories Suite.

This is Lora aged 3 (she was 14 last month!) - told you I had a lot of photos to sort! The papers and most of the elements came from a digi kit called Christmas Around the World which I downloaded free a few years ago. The text and some of the snowflakes were added from MMS and the snowman is a digi image from the Paper Shelter. Love being able to combine all my digi stash with the functions of MMS.

  7. Beautiful layout Carol love the blues, do you print this out or just keep it on your pc? Also I keep meaning to ask are you going to the Mongol Rally is that why you have the countdown on or do you know someone in it (I'm very nosy just tell me to mind my own, but I was just curious as I see the counter every time I am on your blog!!). Good luck with the lenses I have tried them before and couldn't manage but I thought that might be due to fluorescent lighting at work now I have retired I keep meaning to have another bash so I will be keen to know how you get on xx
