Thank you Eliza!

I am so fortunate to work with a girl called Eliza.
Not only is she wonderfully nice, she is an amazing wizz at the computer and she often sends me emails to tell me that she's done something new to my blog.
I'm so excited that she has figured out a way to put a slide show into my blog header - yes a slide show. For those of you with BLOGSPOT, you'll know that it's not an option to do this, but my own personal computer guru has done it.
Take a peak and see what you think - I love it.
Oh and I have a couple of new posts over there too.
PS. My entry into the Scrapbooking Memories Masters 2009 competition is complete - woohoo!
Now it's time to start scrapping for me again.

Don't faint .........

That's right ... don't faint ... it's a layout!
I've been so busy creating things that I can't share yet and enjoying the school holidays with the boys that I needed a bit of time this afternoon to create something just for me
- something I've been meaning to document for a while.
It's a 'no photo' layout which I love to do sometimes and there are heaps of times
when you don't need a photo to tell the story. This is one of them.

Thanks for visiting, I'd love to hear from you ... please! :)

Exciting news!


A little while ago I received an email from the lovely Lisa Warren who asked me if I'd like to be a Guest designer for Inspired Blueprints. Like the name suggests, they provide a monthly sketch and are really a great inspiration.

I jumped at the chance .. this site is great and has a talented team of permanent designers, including Lisa as well as some pretty cool Monthly Guest Designers. My layout will be featured on the first of August - I'll post again but I was excited to share my news.

Apart from that, I've been fighting off the flu, entertaining the boys on school holidays and getting my scrapping commitments done. Looking forward to some 'me layouts' - you know the ones you do for yourself. Have some fun drawings I need to scan today of Joshua's - want to do a layout about that.

Happy Holidays and hope to post something nice soon.

Busy, busy, busy

It's school holidays and it's been a busy week entertaining the boys during the break. On top of that I had a busy afternoon on Saturday at a family photo shoot. I have some photos to share and need to thank my talented friend, ELiza, for setting up a special blog just for photo shoots - she is an absolute wizz with the computer and without her I'd never be blogging.

Here's the link

I'd love to hear what you think if you have a moment and hopefully
I'll be able to update this photo blog with images every now and then.
Looking forward to scrapping and sharing some more layouts soon too.
Happy Holidays!

Photos - hooray!

Hooray, I have some photos to share ... not of layouts but some photos none the less.
I have been scrapping, I promise ... working on Scrapbooking Memories Masters entries (if I ever complete them), Keeping It Simple Article for Scrapbook Creations, a sketch layout for an online sketch site (more news on that soon ;) and a couple of cards here and there.

In between all of that, I managed to take some photos of the boys using my 50mm lens f1.4 last weekend on our Sunday afternoon walk. Hope to have something to show you soon. Take care, Leanne
