Pixie Photos

Pixie photos seem to have come a long way over the years. I have always avoided them in the past having memories of those awful backdrops they used in the 80's, but when I saw them in the shopping centre I was impressed and entered their competition, never expecting to win anything. But win we did - a $300 package!!! And I am so happy with them. There were some fantastic shots of the kids and I could have gone mad and bought more. This is my fave of the three of them together. (not too sure if it has scanned very well, but it looks awesome irl)

Out of the Hat July challenge


This layout "Clean and Fresh" I did for the Out of the Hat Challenge. The criteria was to use a monochromatic colour scheme (all white) - Haberdashery (button and pin) - Felt - (white felt flower). (even if it did take me forever to get it uploaded the right way round!!)
I love how this has turned out.

Challenge Blog Layouts (2nd attempt)

I think I have worked it out??!! After a few attempts through photoshop and then Picasa, I think (hope), that finally now my layouts should be the right way round. Well at least 2 out of the 3 I am trying to upload are. (nothing ever works exactly how you want it to does it??)

This layout "Bed Time" is for White With One Challenge, and this months criteria was to use White with Purple and circles. (This is an old photo of Kaleah taken in Sydney just before we moved to QLD and I'm not overly fussed on this layout just quietly.)

"It's a Girl Thing" is for Scrap the Girls colour challenge - Pink, Orange, White and Black. for the title I painted the raw chipboard alphas and then sprayed them with glimmer mist - they really pop off the black background (might need your sunnies for this layout!!!)

The Art of Eating Spag Bol

We all have these photos - our messy little eaters!!! Beau just loves his spag bol, in fact he loves any pasta, and will always be looking for more!!
(ok the photos are the right way up so why do my layouts rotate??? - Obviously more work needed here - and probably some advice from those more knowlegeable!!)

Challenge Blog Entries

At the beginning of the year I said I wanted to do more challenges from the various blogs around. Well here we are 7 months later and I have finally completed some!!
The only problem is when I emailed them off they seemed to spin out of control through cyberspace and crash landed on their side. And now it seems that when I try to load them here, it is doing the same thing. Not too sure why or how to fix it. But I will keep working on it. But until I do, I apologise for any sore necks from having to turn on the side to see the layouts!!

I Have Finally Done It !!!

Set up a blog that is! Yes I am behind the times I know, but this months upcoming Newsletter feature for Forever Always on blogs has me stepping out of my comfort zone and venturing into the world of blogging. Not too sure when I will get time for this, and still not really sure how it all works, but I am determined to at least try. So I have done the easy thing and created the blog (gotta start somewhere!!), made my first post, and even managed to get a pretty background!!! Well I think it looks pretty anyway. Now to see if I can upload some photos???
