We had a wonderful Christmas and Justin totally spoilt me with amongst other things a fantastic zoom lens for my new camera, it is really great and I can't wait to go somewhere to use it properly. I did take quite a few photos over Christmas with my new camera, a canon 450D and I have been really pleased with the results especially the indoor shots. I thought I would show you a few of my favourites from Christmas day.
Rebecca taking a present for each of us from under the tree.
Emily totally unaware of the camera.
I haven't had much time for scrapping over the last few weeks but I did these back in October for the current issue of the Scrapbook Magazine.
You can't really see on this photo but I have used lots of my new favourite adhesive, silicone glue, to make this layout really three dimensional.
This photo of Rebecca is one of my favourites, it was taken during our climb up Ben Lomond. I wanted the photo to really be the main feature of the page so printed it off quite big, I have added a journaling tag in behind the photo with my memories of the day on one side and Rebecca has written on the other. I really like to get the girls thoughts on events, I think it will be lovely in years to come for them to read what they thought when they were younger and in their own handwriting. In the magazine the journaling tab seems to be missing so not sure where that has gone!!
I am really enjoying more vintage scrapping at the moment, I want to scrap all the little photos that I have got from my childhood. I really enjoyed putting this one together, I think the Martha Stewart butterfly punch is one of my favourite and I seem to be using it all the time at the moment.
This page was done for the new activity pack that is in the Scrapbook Magazine, I picked up my copy today and there are loads of sketches in there.
