Rory's first school photo.

1st Day Of School

Rory's first day of school was a great highlight for Brian and I as we had gone over for his 5th birthday and being there to actually take part in the excitement of getting ready for school in the morning and seeing actually heading into school was very emotional.

Photo A Day - January

This year there are a few of us who have taken on the challange of taking a Photo A Day. I decided I am going to do this and also thought it would be great to add each photo into a template for the month. At the end of the year I hope to have a nice collection of pages with the photos all in place as per day. I have a template that suits this project just perfect. This is my January page. I add the photos through the month so they are almost virtually added by the end of the month.

Still Learning

These first two pages were tutorials from my digi course: The use of Gradients, making a title from a photo so the photo shows on the title - (love this idea) that fountain is the "Peacock Fountain" in Christchurch it is a very pretty fountain, I also learnt how to make my own buttons and added a sheen - pretty cool eh.

This one below was playing with layers and Opacity - there is 26layers in this one, love the effect it gives to a page.

Totally Spoilt

I was really very spoilt at Christmas time by Noriel Sirca and Ann Lavin - thank you girls I just love these gifts so special and treasured.

Below photos are  the Mixed Media doll that Ann gave me, I am so lucky to now have two pieces of very treasured work from you

And Noriel made me these gorgeous table runners - for the caravan however we use them at our house sits, such brilliant fabric - thank you special lady.
