As I can never think of imaginative titles for my blog posts, I usually use the title of one of my latest digital scrap layout. So here is my Fireman Sam layout, using one of my favourite kit In Memory of Miles – a wonderful collaboration kit by the digi-scrapping community to remember a little boy called Miles. Sam was so excited to get to sit in a fire engine.
Here is a quick round up of the end of our time at the cottage – I went to my first scrapbook crop at crafters & co. I really enjoyed it, and although did not create any scrapbook pages, I got some great advice on how to assemble my ABC kids book when I eventually finish it. I also got to use some of those products I have seen in magazines such as Sissix etc. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and although no-one there had ever heard of digital scrapbooking, no-one was too horrified by the concept. By the end of the evening I had a number of requests for digi-scrapping sites and also for my blog. So if your were there – Hi. It is just a pity I don’t live closer, but I do plan to go again soon. I never thought I would miss glitter and glue, but it was fun to ‘play’ again. Although I did find it difficult seeing precious photos being physically cropped etc, and kept thinking how I would enhance/adjust/resize etc with Photoshop. I do intend to return to a bit of paper scrapping, but never quite in the convential way. I admit it – I am a digi-addict!
Our lovely neighbour at the cottage baby-sat for us, so dh (husband for those who may not know – I have been asked recently to explain) and I had a lovely evening out. We just went for coffee/hot chocolate and apple pancakes over a Portstewart. There was a beautiful sunset, and some great waves at a ‘blow-hole’ by the harbour wall. When a large wave came, water spouted up through the hole like an erupting volcano.
