Waterfall Album

I have been making cards for about 20 years, I only started scrapbooking in the middle of 2008. I'm not very confident in this area, I have enjoyed what I have what done so far.
When I started, I went back to when Darian was born (1996) and been working my way up the years. When I got to 1998 (Savannah was born) I started working on both Darian and Savannah's pages. I have got to 2001 when Darian started school, and haven't done much more lately. When Samuel has seen me scrapping he has asked where he is, as I haven't reached 2005 I hadn't done any of his, so in the middle of last year I did 2 pages of his. 
My goal for this week was to work on a mini album.
   I first saw a waterfall album on Roz Begbie blog and she had a link to Delys Cram I had to have a go, there samples are just beautiful. I was too impatient to wait for Delys to email me the instructions. So with a lot of playing with scraps of paper, I worked it out and I am thrilled with the results.
Samuel is 2 years old in these photos, He was very pleased with the album.
I have left room for some journalling.
 These photo's where taken on 12th September 2007 at Don and Anne's house. They have a very large garden on the hillside of MacAndrew Bay Dunedin, there are thousands of Daffodils. Our house group would visit every spring, we always made a day of it and had lots of fun. This was our last spring before we moved to Timaru.
I used Petal Pizzazz Stamp Set another one of the six stamp sets I got free.
