A drum roll please........

Yes I have finally finished, photographed and now I am about to not only blog about my first ever scrap page, but add it to my first ever blog hop!

I know I am probably the first to post my Lay Out but I was too excited to wait until tomorrow morning to share and seeing as it is now January 31st officially I am just going to do it!!
The blog hop starts over with Kate at Liberty Cottage and there are a list of all the participants there (I can't seem to copy and paste into here so sorry I cannot put the full list, if anyone has any ideas why please let me know as it's a pain!). If you are following the blog hop in order you will have come here after looking at Ali's blog mycraftydesk and after leaving me you need to head over to Jo's blog curlyscrapbooker.
I will be working my way through the list tomorrow (or later on today!!) as I am keen to see what everyone has done with the sketch that Kate gave us for this first layout in BY 2010

I am not going to talk or explain much about creating my first layout as yet, as I have been asked to talk about this experience as a guest blogger over at Liberty Cottage, so I will be dishing the dirt then!!!

So without further ado this is what I did with the sketch and what it turned into....

A page about our Christmas Tree and because I had several images and could not decide which to use, i created a second page

so I actually have a double layout

I have comments and questions which I will discuss with you at some point but overall I am pretty happy with my first scrapping experience and definitely planning on doing more!
