Well, it's been a long time coming, but at last my digital scrapbooking products are in the Scrapgirls Boutique...YAY! It's been an uphill struggle over the past 2 or 3 weeks because I've had bronchial pneumonia (where did that come from?) and I've been burning a lot of midnight oil, but it's been worth it because finally they went live yesterday and I'm so pleased with the way they look.
Take a look, what do you think?
This is the Floralicious 1 Collection Biggie
Contents of the collection, together with a couple of layouts of my beautiful granddaughters created with the kit. The lacy layout that I posted a few weeks ago was also made with this kit. The Floralicious 2 Collection Biggie
A couple of layouts from Floralicious2 kit
I hope you like them, TFL
I shall be back later with a peek at my other kits
Have a good Friday everyone

So much for good intentions!

I had promised myself to blog at least weekly, but hey ho, the best laid plans of mice and men and all that.....!
My poor old pc was on it's last legs and really couldn't cope with CS5 so I've invested in a new, superfast one and a lush 22" monitor.....HEAVEN!
I have been really busy over the past few weeks designing digi kits. As I blogged a couple of weeks ago, I applied to join the team at ScrapGirls as a product designer. first products should be in their store this week...YIPPEEE! I am so excited!
Here is a very simple LO using the first kit, Floralicious 1. I hope you like it

Where did the weekend go?

One blink and I missed it! I spent most of yesterday spring cleaning my workroom - it was a total tip. But now it's absolutely lush and I know where everything is (I hope). I found all sorts of things I didn't know I had!

I upgraded my Photoshop recently to CS5 extended - wow, it's such a powerful software package and I don't think I'll ever have time to learn the full extent of its capabilities, but I'm having serious fun trying!

Here are a few experimental pieces I've done of the grandkids:

Have a great day everyone, I'll be back soon xx

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Crikey, it's been a busy couple of weeks. I don't know where the time goes - I'm sure the days get shorter as I get older! I'm compensating by sleeping less - I'm up most mornings before five. It's the best time of the day, especially at this time of year, and the time when I'm most productive with my scrapping.
I've spent a lot of time recently designing digital scrapping kits. ScrapGirls advertised for new Product designers so I thought I'd have a go and apply. I had to design a mini kit comprising; 6 papers, a set of embellishments and a set of wordart; a set of digital brushes; 2 paper templates and 2 embellishment templates. Here are a couple of layouts made with the kit. Let's hope they like my work!

The top layout is of my grandaughter Maddy at last years' school sports day and the bottom one uses some of my favourite pics of my grandaughter Alisha, taken about 3 yrs ago.

I'll be back soon! xx

I've never been good at keeping a diary but I thought it was time I joined Bloggerland!

I shall try to be super-organised and post regularly, but we all know that life has a tendency to take over sometimes.

I had the most amazing day yesterday - my birthday present from the family was the opportunity to be "zookeeper for a day" at Colchester zoo. WOW! what a day. I was totally blown away. Here are a few pics from the experience:
