I was away [3 days in a country cottage with 7 other crafters and a lorry load of food] ... but now I'm back. Look, I'm right here. Yoo hoo! I'm over here on the sofa wearing a tartan shirt very, very similar to one of the papers I used for the layout I'm sharing today.
Yes, apparently I'm now dressing to match my blog posts ... I really do make the effort you know! ;-)
Anyway, here's the fully co-ordinating layout in question:
The photos, of me and my big sis, were taken seconds apart at the Christmas lunch table last year:
Backing paper: Quietude from the Sweetness of Living range by Onirie.
When I'd downloaded them on to the computer and could flick between them it made me laugh to see how composed and smiley we were in the second shot:

Which is where the jounaling came into it:
I've shared another similar combination here on the 3DJean Design Team blog where the silly photo in question this time round involves me posing as a skeleton with my best folorn face.
In fact I'm about to try out that same face on James as I ask him to go and get the Sauvignon Blanc from the fridge ...
Wish me luck!
