Scrapping our Skype meeting

A little while ago- one Sunday afternoon,some of us in blogland got together for a chat on Skype.
We had all arranged to be at our laptops/computers at a certain time all courtesy of Deb Turtle ( I always feel weird calling her that, but her blog name is Paperturtle and I suppose we recognise who it is by saying that!) Anyway,I digress- Deb-from Deb's world and a friend of mine who lives not too far away - just to confuse the issue - came over to mine and we got ready in front of the laptop. We had a lovely couple of hours just catching up and generally chatting and I've at last done a layout to keep as a memento of it..I used some more of the papers and cardstcok and bits from the Gottacraft kit again..

Journalling reads .....
On the screen from left to right is Deb and her daughter Carrie ,then Ruth,then Rhona.Next row down is Mel and Karen .Then at the bottom is myself  and Deb..
I must say- after a few tiny little teething troubles it all went very well !
Hope we can do it again soon

I love how you've been using the kits! I've been scrapping madly over the weekend and have managed to use up some of mine, too - I recognise that border sticker from one of yesterday's efforts chez Melsh.... Thanks for this reminder of a really lovely afternoon, I've missed blogworld lately so it's been so good to catch up here xx

How lovely to chat together over the internet; how lovely to scrap all about it afterwards!
Skype was so wonderful for us last year, when DH was working in Stockholm for 6 months. He was often away for 2 weeks at a time and we could talk to him every evening, before DS went to bed - they even played "Warhammer" battles online at the weekend, once we managed to sort out how to set up my laptop, so it picked up the game on-screen - all laid out on a huge bit of board on the floor!
Great scrap page - the design is lovely, as well as the subject.

This is fab Denise - I just love the way it brings everything together, the blogging and the chatting and the scrapbooking and the making friends. It's a really happy souvenir.
