Friend's birthday card

February 6 is my friend Jill's birthday. We went to boarding school together and we are the same age, but I'm pretty sure she's gonna be pissed at me for putting her age on the card!!
I don't remember the last we saw each other. She now lives in Malta and crews on sail boats for a living. She is never in England when I go to visit. But we stay in touch with MSN, email, Christmas and birthday cards, and the odd call here and there.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JILL!

February 1st Layout

So I made this page today and completely changed the papers that I had originally picked out. This one is much more vibrant. Yesterday I was at Walmart and picked up 2 paper packs that ususally sell for $20 each, but I got them for $5. There are some very lovely papers in there, hopefully I will get them used up.

This was the last night in Cuba. We had dinner with friends that we made down there. I took a couple of shots from the dining room window of the sun going down.

Here are 2 trees that were on the grounds of the hotel I stayed in while in Varadero, Cuba

On the way to Havana we stopped of at a little place for drinks and something to eat. I just wandered the grounds and found this amazing gnarled tree.

Here is Beatriz taking a rest in the very hot sun. We saw so much of Havana thanks to one of the restaurant staff from our hotel who showed us around.
