Good morning all I hope you're well and not too badly affected by the weather. We had a dusting yesterday and it snowed on and off all day, it was finally white by dusk.
I nearly had a hairy canary yesterday when I discovered I'd deleted several hundred files from my computer rather than just removing them from Picassa as I'd intended to! Luckily they were all in the recycle bin and I was able to restore everything!!
I saw a double layout sketch over at Sketches in Thyme on Thursday and decided it would be perfect for one of the pages of the lads Mongol Rally album, so here I'm sharing the finished article.

I love this kit from Mye de Leon called "Ticket to Ride" and it's been perfect for this album. The layout has been created in Craft Artist. One of my resolutions for this year is to get this album finished.......there are several pages to go before I even get to preserving their 5 weeks of adventure!!

Challenges entered:
Lasting Memories - something old, something new (old kit and photos, new resolution)
