Spring is Sprung

You know spring is here and we should be enjoying the warmth but this weekend was freezing here in Jo'burg. A definate movies and hot chocolate day.

Here is a new LO to remind us of how great spring sunshine and warmth can be.
This is using the spring fling kit by Kylie Moore. Great kit with really nice colours etc.

Hey we scrappers are really sad but if you check out the blog at snap and scrap you will find a song for scrappers. I think it is really great and can be found under this weeks sketchy tuesday post. Hope you are having a great day.

Well it is Thursday and time is still flying. I wonder if it is eating special vitamins or something which is making it move so fast. If it is I want to get some of the same.

We will need all our energy this weekend to pack yet again as we move house on Monday. We are so looking forward to it and I hope that this will be our last move for a long time. We are looking forward to more space and room to breath. Also want to open a studio for people to come scrap or make cards or do artistic work for themselves. I hope it will be a creative space.

I doodled around the other day in Photoshop CS2 and had a ball just playing. I loved this picture which came from the web as a copyright free image and not sure who it is of or who by - philistine I know - but love the strength of this woman. The quote and boat are from a design by Bronwen Van Esch and her 'All Aboard Kit' available at www.snapandscrap.net. The rest is doodles I did myself. Oh I also cloned the picture and 'drew' it in the corner.

What I enjoy about this is that it may not rock any one elses boat but I had fun, and I enjoyed it. So go out there and let your creativity go wild and enjoy.

All Girl

Well I can't believe it is Sunday again. The weeks are flying past and it will be Christmas before we know it. If you are looking for presents why not visit the shoppe at http://www.snapandscrap.net/

There is a kit there where you can produce your own calenders for family and friends. A friend of mine did that a couple of years ago using black and white photos and it was such a stunning personal thing. She had it bound at a printers for a very small cost and honest it was fabulous.

These pages were made using the 'Jazzed' kit from snap and scrap. If you are clever you can get parts of it for free by going to the blog there. It is a really great kit with loads of denim and is good for boy or girl.

It is strange to think that the girl in the bath (top picture) is the mother of the girl Hayley in 'All Girl'

Time really does have wings

Alice in WOnderland please grant me a wish

Oh if only wishes could be granted by caterpillars

Would it not be nice if we could all be Alice in Wonderland and get down to the size we want to be.

Here is another one of those older photos. Take in 1976 it really takes you back to the fashions the times. Sitting on a shingle beach. We were made of much hardier stuff it seems in those days.
I remember this summer very well as it was the year we had no rain for months. I remember drinking wine at around midnight sitting outside with friends.
Paper is my own design but the scroll element at the bottom is from the ALL ABOARD kit available at www.snapandscrap.net
