Week 37 - 2010

Flying through -again- I know, this is beginning to be a habit! - and dropping off the page for Week 37, you can what I used for my page by going to the gallery HERE

hmmmmm I'm enjoying seeing the fall colours appearing in nature and in decor :D I could never choose a favourite season....I will seem to be totally incapable of making up my mind. Which is of course completely true when it comes to my favourite season, my favourite chocolate, my favourite movie.....

See you later...with Week 38! Whoot!

Father & Son

I think old pictures, even if they are not in good condition, need to be scrapped with dignitty ;-) that sounds really funny, but what I mean is that there is no way to get a better picture now,and seeing as this is the only one we have - it should be treated like a treasure.

That is a very long winded way of saying that i scrap old and rare or unique pictures, regardless of their condition.

Like this one...now isn't this Father & Son picture precious?

I guess one day I may get tired of scrapping old photographs, but right now, I'm really enjoying it!

Week 36 - 2010

Just flying through here quickly with last week's page...before I dash out the front door :D

Although the weather has certainly changed and fall is in the air, some days are just stunning. Look at the early morning sun on the wet alder leaf, sporting it's fall brown colour. One of those days was last Wednesday when I took the 'water' pictures featured here. It was warm, sunny and gorgeous. Perfect for a cup of coffee and a chat with a friend on the beach!
The bottom right picture is of a demo (fine art) it was a lot of fun...nothing quite beats 'playing' in an art studio.

Got to fly...and must remember to grab my camera! Have you taken a picture today yet....?

Week 35 - 2010

I'm really enjoying doing these weekly pages. I thought I might be pulling my hair out half way through the year, but am happy and relieved that I don't feel that way at all. I've found though, that rather than absolutely follwoing the picture-a-day 'rule' I enjoy just capturing the week a a whole. For now I am labelling actual days, but that is something I will omit in the future years. For now i would like this year to have a continious look though. Now whether I will do next year on a weekly or monthly basis is something I will decide closer to the end of the year...

So this page features 2 weeks ago and last week's one is almost done, should be able to post that by tomorrow...
I was looking at Scrapbook Bytes 'Grab-A-Byte' goodies and found a set of elements and a paper pack that would be perfect for the wedding album pages I'm working on. So I decided to grab these (at $1.00 each) Then when I settled down to do my page, the kit I thought I would use, just didn't fit....but these new items were PERFECT! Full credits HERE

I LOVE how this turned out!

Week 35

I'm totally pleased with the great items at such a great price...doing the very happy dance here :D Thank you designers...

3 Generations...

I have another picture of these 3 men...plus the next generation youngster. It is really incredible to have pictures of all the generations together!

I used Lisa Hankins' (aka Studio Gypsy) new 'Divine Debris' Kit for this LO. It is wonderfully grungy and can be both soft and feminine and rough/grungy - just right for the guys.

See how beautifully girly this LO by Cynthia is?

I made my LO into a QP for you, now if you have the kit, it would be super easy to girlify it ;-)

You can download it HERE

Have a great weekend!!

Is Summer Over?

Hmmmmm I don't know that I'm quite ready for summer to be over just as yet....I do have 3 more pages done for the yearbook. I was taking some time off to work on our wedding album, so I got a little behind again ;-(...one more to go to be 'with it' once more.

Week 34 (credits here) - I'm am already 'missing' the summer's berries.Sniff sniff....

Week 33  (credits here) The colours in this one just makes me smile...aren't those crabs amazing? And see the picture of the photo book on the right? Yeah! That's the first half of the year all printed up -all 217 or so pictures - I don't remember the exact number now- We are all very pleased with the result and I hope to get the additional copies soon :-D

Week 32 - credits HERE . Friends celebrated their 50th Anniversary in August. Quite a milestone that! WOW!

Now hopefully I'll get round to making a QP for you for Thursday's new release by Studio Gypsy....I sure am going to try! Until then - let's scrap up a storm!
