These look terrific, Emma. I have a busy weekend planned, but will be able to start tomorrow morning. I printed off my YIR photos this morning and, thankfully, some of those do have me in them. Very Happy

I do have a question, though. I don't follow football, but love the races. I've just arrived home from them, actually. Now, there are two trainers whose horses I ALWAYS back at Ipswich, so I wondered if I could use their colours. One (Rob Heathcoate) has pink and black checks, the other (Gillian Heinrich) has pink with black horseshoes, so, coincidentally, they both have pink and black.

Kathy, it is fine with me for you to use the colours from racing, they are the colours from a sport you follow.

Thanks so much, Emma. Now to find suitable photos!

And I agree with Toni, the sketch is lovely. It's so beautifully balanced.

Toni, when the albums are available, you can move them yourself. Just click the edit button and it will give you the option to change folders.

I have two pages of my YIR completed and am nearly finished the masked card challenge.....the phone rang for school before I could complete it this morning.
