New Toy

Well I was treated at the weekend by my lovely husband to a new toy......a new camera!! I had bought my old one on holiday in Florida two years ago and whilst it still took good photos there were a few things that niggled. I also bought a wrap around case, the shop assistant was horrified when I told her that I often put my camera in my back pocket when we go for walks on the island, it is really clever and you fix it onto the tripod hole at the base of the camera. I haven't been out anywhere really good to use it yet but spent a good couple of hours on Saturday night photographing anything that moved. It is great as it has a 7x optical zoom compared to the 3x of my old camera, the colours are great too much more life like.

My new toy!

I am off to the scrapaholics retreat on Friday which I am really excited about, I have only ever been to one retreat before. I have started to pack my new tote, only trouble is I want to take everything!! Justin is off to China on a week tomorrow for two weeks, it will be really strange him not being around and I am going to really miss him.

I did a LO today using some papers that have been sat in my paper storage for ages, Crate paper Katlin. They are gorgeous, girlie colours and I found the perfect photo of Rebecca striping wallpaper in her bedroom. I have decided that I am going to have to try and find some non pink girlie papers, so many of the LOs in my gallery are pink!

Back to work tomorrow, I am in charge for the next three weeks as the sister is off to the Dominican Republic, very nice! Fingers crossed everything will run smoothly.
