window and it is great for playing with my camera. I am currently doing Shimelles Love your Pictures class and am finally learning how to use my camera. I will post some of my trials later on but I am really pleased so far. It is annoying though that I have had my point and shoot for over 5 years now and am only just finding out how good it actually is! Still, it can only strengthen my case for a DSLR if I start taking great pictures over the next week this was always the bargain with the boss, learn to use what I have first!!!!
So, I am surrounded by great views, pubs, shops, activities. What have u been doing for the past week Jayne?, I hear u ask! I have been sitting in the lounge surrounded by paper and card. And, I have to say, I have scrapped like I have never scrapped before. I have managed 5 LOs so far......5! That has to be a record for me I know that is mere peanuts to a lot of u....maybe I am finally finding my mojo! And, I have made 3 cards. Galway must surely be spreading the creative joy. I wonder if I could bottle it and take it back to Leitrim with me?
I certainly think that NSD helped as it was great to have something to aim towards. Which brings me onto my first LO which I did for Shimelles first challenge
Oh! That is not the one....but I don't seem to have taken a picture of the one I wanted to post yet. Oops!
I did this one before I left! The paper is Sassafras.....in fact everything is Sassafras now I come to look at it. The pictures are from our wedding reception. The hotel had laid out apertifs and I thought that one of them looked like a nipple o dear, the benny hill generation! and was demonstrating this to people when our photographer the boss's Aunt, who |is a great photographer and did our pictures as a wedding gift said that she had to 'capture the image'. Of course, the boss had to get in on the act. I like that the pictures show how relaxed we seemed to be i dont know if that was the alcohol or the fact that the ceremony was over lol. A very simple LO but I like how with alot of Sassafras, u don't need to complicate things because the papers speak for themselves.
O dear, it has just started raining and the mob are all off to play golf in a little while. I am off to stiffle my giggles so cruel to laugh at others misfortune,especially when I am staying in hee hee and I will be back later to post a few more LOs, pictures and get excited about
Jedward Eurovision tonight.
