What looks like a wonderful movie has been made, about a perfectly wonderful thing that needs to be preserved, promoted and fully utilised! If you are in, or near this place, you have to go there! Wish I could…
scrapbooking, digital designing + a little fun;]
If you’re like me, you’ll have a tonne of photos from Christmas Day you want to add to your album, but the dilema is which ones to use + which to leave out?
It’s great to make use of all those snaps of little details in your layouts – it helps build up a picture of the ambience of the occasion. So, Question – how to use lots of photos in a LO, without looking overcrowded? Answer – Select about 16 or so interesting photos, print a contact sheet onto a good quality photo paper, then trim them all with a small white border [I love to trim mine so they look like mini polaroid photos].
You can see I’ve arranged the photos in a scattered fashion – I want it to look like a bunch of photos almost dropped on the page. Notice I’ve ‘contained’ them inside the smaller piece of the PP, so that there’s still quite a bit of ‘white space’ on the background where the eye can ‘rest’, despite the large number of photos on the page.
Here’s how I did it:
Hope this helps you get all those Christmas photos scrapped!
Bye, bye 2009, Hello 2010!
We had a glorious Christmas Day + I thought I’d share a few snaps from the day. Now, I don’t like to share photos of my family – I’m too much of a cyber-safety ‘freak’ for that!! So, you’ll mostly get my food snapshots. Yes, I take photos of food… a part of me says that’s quite tragic, but another part of me says it’s a beautiful thing!
Now, for my Northern Hemisphere readers, these photos will be a bit odd, but we have Christmas in the summer here in Oz, so salads + seafood are often the order of the day!
hmmm, what could this be??? such clever wrapping – how could anyone guess?? :}
freshly dug ‘pink-eye’ potatoes – straight from our veggie patch + into the roasting pan!
bbq’d pork + mango – more yumminess!
spit roasted chook [the back story here is that I only attempted to roast my first chicken about 3 years ago, so I'm still really impressed with myself everytime I roast a chook!!]
+ for a twist on tradition, we finished off with my dh’s famous violet crumble cheesecake with a few festive extras [choc + fresh blueberries] perfect!
So, that was our day - perfect weather, lots of wonderful, thoughtful gifts, phone calls + delicious food.
I hope your day, was equally memorable + warm!
Here’s my latest creation for BlueMoonScrapbooking.com
I think my favourite product in this project is Pink Paislee’s clear stickers - they are perfectly crystal clear + they’re created with Sande Krieger’s gorgeous antique borderlines – the digital version of which I’ve had for years – so versatile!
