Relax, that would be the theme for the month of June over at Scrapgal. Wish I could say that I am relaxed but it's more the complete opposite. T's bug developed into a chest infection for me so I haven't been feeling too well. But now that my cocktail of meds have begun to kick in life is a bit more pleasant.
Am neglecting my photocamera dreadfully. Am paying the baby off so I should be playing with it every day really but can't say that I am. Better improve on that, I have so much to learn! And I can do with some new pics for future layouts too. LOL. Seems that many of my photos aren't very suitable, doesn't help the kids don't co-operate really so plenty of out of focus, stick your tongue out, close your eyes or throw a tantrum photos. Sigh. I need to clean my lens too, it has sticky fingers on it. Will have to find out the best way to do that.
Anyway, hope you're having a relaxing Queen's Birthday Weekend. I'll leave you with my two layouts for the newsletter:
This one is Annabel in the paddling pool. The chipboard elements are from the lastest release by Buzz and Bloom. And I LOVE them. Buzz and Bloom are a recent discovery for me, thanks to Philippa. Yeah I know, I'm not at all up with what's hot in 'the industry'. Nobody ever tells me anything! lol. Lime Tart has B&B chipboard for sale. And what's not on the site she can possibly get in for you as she has the contacts at Buzz and Bloom. I covered both the flower and the little crown with white gliter, but it doesn't really show on the photograph. I'm liking my glitter at the moment.
This one documents a rule I've set for myself: no more housework after 8pm. When both kids are in bed that is MY time. That's when I scrap or do whatever I want. Of course that means my house is generally a mess so I'd prefer a little bit of warning if you're planning to come over :-p. Anyone know how to get kids to tidy up after themselves? I think I need the super nanny. Haven't quite got that part under control yet. (just kidding, well only a little - about the super nanny, not about that mess, that is very real)
