365 challenge

Well here it is, finally, the new blog. I will be doing some tinkering with it over the next few weeks to get the right look. This may cost me £££££ with the children who are a whole lot better than me at this!

I am starting off the year by joining in the 365 photo challenge which I have seen on various blogs, websites and in the January Creating Keepsakes magazine. With more information and ideas on their website. http://www.creatingkeepsakes.com/content/view/17561/

Becky Higgins http://www.beckyhiggins.com/blog/ has produced a kit which will be on sale in the US on Jan. 1st. But with the change in exchange rate it will be prohibitively expensive and costly to ship. It looks lovely and I like the colours.

But, I have decided to make my own pages with the vast mountain of stash that I already have. I will use the basic layout that it is featured in the magazine article but adapt it to suit my own needs. I am going to use a 12x12 American Craft Ring-Binder album. I am going to try & start my pages tonight so that they are ready to deposit my photos straight on to. I think this will make it easier than doing it all in retrospect.

I will try to add in various links and ideas as I go to share the inspiration of others.

I love this picture most of all the pics I have taken in the last few days.....

I am really pleased with the pics I took of Gracie on Friday. We went for a bracing walk round the lake and in the underpass tunnel there is loads of grafitti. I couldn't resist getting her to pose. I think I will need to do another trip with Rosie and her friends and do a bit of a photo shoot.
