August 6, 2006

the countdown is on – in less than 2 weeks i’ll be in sydney doing classes with donna, ali & cathy!! my friend suzannah (hi suzannah!!) was wondering if i was excited – you bet!! big kev- type excited!! not only are these ladies 3 of my all-time favourite scrappers, but i’ll also get to catch up with lots of scrapping friends!! & i can’t wait!!

we had to do homework for some of the classes – like finding your 5 favouite photos from 2005. it motivated me to go thru the thousands of images on my computers hard-drive – a time-consuming but fun exercise! it was hard to keep to 5 – but these are the images i’ve chosen so far:


one of the 1st photos i took with my new canon 20D, this image still takes my breath away!madi was only 4 & a half at the time – but she looks so much older. its a tiny peek at what she’ll look like when she’s grows up.


i’ve already scrapped this one – but its still a favourite! i love the colour & the strong diagonals & the way they draw your eye to his sweet smile!


a favourite from last year’s egg hunt – i just love the sweet look on bear’s face!


last xmas i captured this rare family photo & i love it! i used the original on our xmas cards – then recently i was playing in PSE & discovered this cool handtinted effect – i like it even better than the original!!

that’s it for now! have a great weekend! 🙂
