It's been a while since I did any scrapping, but as I've made any cards I needed to make, I thought I'd do a couple of layouts of my grandchildren from my trip to Cyprus back in May. My papers are all Echo Park. Mia's layout used 'Paradise Beach' and Aidan's is 'Splash'. I know they don't particularly look like holiday layouts lol, but I'll get round to those too sometime, I'm sure.

There's no journalling on Mia's layout, which is rare for me, but I don't think it really needed any.

I totally love these pics of Aidan, and this layout definitely called for journalling which is:

Looking at you staring out to sea, these photos make me think that you look like you have the weight of the world on your little shoulders. Where do you go to Aidan? Where do you go in your dreams? Do you travel to distant lands with mystical creatures or is your little brain still not big enough to take you anywhere other than where you are now? How much do you know about what’s out there? Just because you can’t talk yet, it doesn’t mean you don’t know things. Do you dream of pictures you’ve seen, or dogs you’ve played with or your mummy and daddy or your Grandma? Who do you see in your sleep Aidan? There is so much in the world and you know so little. But, you will discover and learn all manner of things as you grow up. Your learning won’t stop when you’re a man either Aidan, life is one big learning curve and there is always something new to discover. Most importantly Aidan, I hope you learn to love. Love your family and your friends. Love nature and animals. Love books. Love life, Aidan………1st May 2012 - Cyprus.
