The Boy Child and I spent a day recently roaming London's West End checking out the Christmas windows. We began at Knightsbridge and ended at Green Park, having covered Sloane Street, Berkeley Square and Bond Street in between.

I made the final Christmas 2017 layout earlier this week - the photo shows all of us post Christmas lunch. The Brainy Boy used an iPhone linked to an iWatch to take the photo (there's clever ...). I found the idea for the design on Doodlebug Design's Instagram page.

I've recently added a double page spread to our 2018 album about visiting the utterly fabulous Greys Court.There was yet another page for the various albums containing spreads about Washington, DC. The design below was one that I upsized from a spread in my Traveler's Notebook.
