I Heart Cosmo Cricket. . .

September 30, 2009

It is an obsession really. . . this love affair I am currently having with all things Cosmo.  And just when I thought there was nothing left for me to buy – well 0oops they did it again!!!

The latest line from Cosmo Cricket is called:

nutmeg

nutmeg-2

nutmeg-3

Seriously, what is not to love about those adorable little bunnies???????  I thought the hedgehog s from Earth Love were cute. . . sigh!

I have been working on a few layouts with Cosmos other lines that I should have ready for posting later today!  Check back for more Cosmo Inspiration!!!

Happy Day everyone!

Hands On Photography!

September 28, 2009

Canadian Scrapbooker ‘s website has a great new feature called Hands On Photography!  Written by Sue Sykes, it provides practical info on how to make the most of your camera, and simplifies getting those shots you KNOW are possible with your camera, but you just haven’t figured it out just yet!

It also features photographs submitted by readers who try out the techniques featured!  Here is a link to a photo I submitted, which was featured on the blog on Friday September 25th:  Jump for Joy!

Speaking of photos – I finally found the missing card from our trip last summer!  It has the photos I took in ALert Bay, and on the ferry through the Inside Passage from Port Hardy, BC to Prince Rupert.   Here are a few samples:

 What can you do with YOUR camera today!!!??????

New Pink Paislee – yummy!

September 23, 2009

I will be teaching a class at Scrapbook Parade in November using the new fall line from Pink Paislee and it is YUMMY!!!  The line is called “Amber Road” and is everything fabulous about fall – warm colours, apples, harvest, gratitude.  Now that it is officially fall, I am definitely in the mood for some “cooler” layouts – here are a couple of the layouts for that class.

All About Autumn Class

Next I will be working on some layouts for that spookiest of seasons. . .  with the new lines from Fancy Pants and Pink Paislee – YAY!!!
