Has it really been that long?

Well, yes, I know I haven't posted in a while, but that's not really what the title of this post is about........I've seen quite a few Graduation layouts on UKS recently, and it got me thinking it was time I scrapped mine. Which in turn led me to realise that it was SEVENTEEN years ago (eeek!). This thought then led me to realise that this means Mr A and I will have known each other for TWENTY years next October (double eeek!). I can still remember that time so clearly, it really does not seem that long ago.............

So here is the famous LO - papers are from Bo Bunny and Sizzix, and for once, I've included a lot of journalling, with comments about my Dad being behind the camera (and therefore not in the picture - as always!), a bit of info about my outfit (a black & white polka dot Jackie O style dress, with a turquoise boxy-style jacket, all made for me by Mum - I loved it, but it was so very 80's!), as well as a note commenting on the fact that while Mr A also graduated that day, all photographic evidence of this fact has mysteriously disappeared!!!!


















On a slightly nostalgic note, I suddenly noticed that the wonderful old West Pier in Brighton is standing behind the smaller picture of me - it was still relatively intact in those days.........

Fab LO - not sure I would want to scrap my graduations pics though. Mine was 19 years ago and I go a 2:2 too!

Ah yes the west pier...I was lucky enough to go on one of the last tours of it. It was in a bad state even then. Such a shame about what happened to it. Great LO - pity that Mr A's photos have gone missing.
