Father's Day

Another day, another blog entry!  Just managed to get this hybrid card made and posted in time to send to my Dad.  He thinks my photography has really improved so thought I'd include some of the photos i've taken recently - the tulip is from his garden. Used the journal block and alpha from Shimelle's "You are amazing" kit and frame from Starburst mini kit.

Flaming June

Flaming sinusitis more like! Been really suffering this week, sinusitis pain really horrible and balance off, feeling much better now though. Just as well since mybig sis, 2 nieces and one of their friends are coming to visit on the 30th and I have a few things to get organised before they arrive.
I actullay completed 2 design team projects before the end of the month, just forgot to blog the layout above! This was made using Shimelle's "You are amazing" page template and alpha.
More photos I'd taken during the Picture Spring course. I borrowed the title from Photographer Craig Tanner's Blog as it really captures what I feel I have learned from Picture Spring at Big Picture Scrapbooking - will need to sign up for Picture Summer!
A hybrid project using part of the same template to follow shortly....

Where did May go?!!!

I can't believe it's June already, May seems to have flashed by in the blink of an eye. At the beginning of May, Mum finished her chemo sessions and this coincided with Dorothy Pauls last ever performance of her one women show at the Pavilion in Glasgow(although she does always have a pianist!). If you haven't heard of her take a look at Youtube, she is so funny and it was great to see Mum enjoying herself. The end of May also marked the end of Mum's radiotherapy sessions too so June will be a better month all round. My niece Heather took part in Kilbarchan's Lilia's Day procession yesterday so hopefully my sister took some photos - did you Pauline?? Hopefully she did and no doubt they might end up on a layout or two!
The LO above is of our day at the theatre - couldn't take my SLR to the theatre so took a couple of photos on my phone - not too bad really! This is a page template by Shimelle at 2peas "Count to four" - it also includes a full alpha!
