Been a bit slack of late but I'm still here..
I was lucky enough to go on a scrapping Retreat a few weekends ago & had a great weekend away!! About 30 ladies & we had a fun time, got to see my sister to so that was good.
On Sunday, at the retreat, I did a photography workshop with
the fabulous Andrea Thompson. What a funny, talented lady, if you ever get
the chance to do a workshop with her go for it!! It was fantastic, its amazing what you can
learn in few hours with a good teacher!! Just the basics but a huge help
with how to take better photos.
Andrea also, very generously, took some photos of us using our own camera's!!
With the right pose & person using the camera anyone can get a good photo,
I'm really pleased, if I say so myself :0) with the pics she took of me!!
I have seen some of the other shots that she took of the other
ladies in the class & theirs look fantastic!!
One tip she gave was always put some lipstick or lipgloss & mascara on before you
have your photo taken, adds some shine & brightens your eyes!!!
So there you go...
she takes amazing photos & this is here motto
"when i see beautiful moments...i see photographs"
YES...I did also do some scrappin...

Well ours would be toasting Marshmallows when we go camping BUT
one night at home the kids toasted them over a candle!!
Similar don't you think...
those cute little guys waddle up the beach!!
The criteria was...
Autumn colours, hand made flower & texture (felt)
The ribbon isn't really crocked!! I promise....
Use 20 pieces of the same thing on a LO, mine was adhesive bling
in the flowers.
Each started with a base paper & one other item on there paper.
I stated with the white CS base & the blue glitter ribbon.
Then passed it around the table & each person added 1 thing to the page.
I love how mine came back, I even found the perfect photo & title
for the page once I got it back!! LOVE IT :0) & those birds on a wire,
had to share this pic..
