Just a note!

Ok I forgot to mention my bargin buy from the new year. Dave & I went to a second hand shop to look for hidden treasure & these teacups were what I found. They aren't antique or name-brand but they are very cute & make a nice addition to my teacup collection my Nan gave me years ago. They were $3 for EACH teacup, saucer & cake plate set. I haven't actually used them yet but I have them on the sideboard in my bedroom where I can admire them & hope David brings me a cup of tea in bed!! I have an antique bed tray which I will have to photograph. It is quite solid & even has a book stand.

Photography challenge

These 2 photos are photos that I took as part of a photography challenge. The one on the left is titled"hats"( my hubby's old & new hat) & the one on the right is "beginnings"(it is the beginning of making plans for our campers)
There is a theme for each week of the year. I actually end up taking more than 1 photo
so I can scrap them (what else!!) & make a challenge album. Well at least I will keep up with the photos and I don't know about the scrapbooking-I'll add it to the list! LOL! The next photo is titled "sweet" & I've taken a photo but haven't downloaded it yet. You are welcome to join in on the fun & have your own challenge. Happy snapping!

Wishing everyone a great year for 2010 with many everyday opportunities for scrapbooking & enjoying each & every day. Our year has started off wonderfully with camping in our "Tardis"- it's like Dr. Who's time machine where it is bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside. It is like a big slide on camper with a slide out section. the weather has been a bit showery but it gave me good excuses to stay in & scrapbook & to make some cards as well. Since Christmas I haven't taken too many photos but I have enough to scrap as it is. This year I am doing a challenge of 25 layouts in 25 weeks. I will probably start in February some time as I need to be organised for the start of the year & going back to work after my time off. I'll post the sketches & the layouts if you would like to join in.
