    Hi Melissa

    Never thought of trying a mini book first. might have to try one using some cheaper papers then it won't matter if it's not great. Think i might even have one somewhere that my sil sent. I Put it on one side cos i didn't know what to do with it. as usual lol.

    Aww thanks everyone for the comments on my pages :o it's very kind of you.
    Craftygranny I'm sure your pages will be lovely when you get chance to do them, I never have confidence in mine either, I always think they are pretty basic but if you go on UK Scrappers there are some stunning layouts on there from some very talented scrap bookers to look at. I'm sure your grandaughter will love anything you made.
    Melissa at the moment the christening one is my favourite too, I don't often use pastel colours and like how this one turned out, the oval in the centre opens up into a little book with some journaling.

    Mrs Bones - Your pages are fantastic! I will post some of my pages but they aren't up to that standard at all - however I'm moving this week so everything is currently being packed! Will have to dig it all out when we're settled.

    Is there a internet shop where I can buy lose sheets of paper for my scrapbook?
    There used to be a scrapbook/card making shop in my village but it closed down recently and I don't know where to buy my papers now.
    I don't have a printer so I can't print out from the net. I do not drive so I can't go to hobby craft or other similar stores in other towns...
    I've had a look on ebay but can't really find anything there that I'm after
