Yearbook 2011 - September

Well what with packing and sorting and a pile of other things happening, I don't seem to do much more that yearbook pages and some ATC's. Still I'm not complaining, but some more fun goodies would be nice ;-)

Rina Kroes is Designer of The Month over at Scrapbook-Elements at the moment, so I hope to provide you with a freebie or 2 during her month. Watch this space for possible 'treats' coming up.

In the meantime here is the first page for September. I know the month isn't over yet, but I don't expect huge photo opportunities to come along, and if anything is that can have it's own page :p

Hopefully I`ll have time to play in photoshop a bit again tomorrow!

Later gators!

Yearbook 2008 - June

It is time to start on the September pages I think. Not too many days left now ;-) In the meantime I've been catching up on the 2008 Yearbook pages. Here's another one...

It has been cool and raining here. Lovely weather as far as I'm concerned, cozy and all that sort of thing. I'm ready for all those autumn/fall kits to hit the stores :D

Yearbook 2008 - Fall Images

I think when I look back at a stack of my photo books I shall see the same images over and over again. The truth is that I get captivated by the same beauty every year. Look at these colours - the golden leaves, the green mosses, the shapes and colours on the fungi and lichens. What a wonderful world of variety and beauty! This page is for the 2008 Yearbook. It is coming along slower than I like, but it is moving nevertheless. And every page done is...well, a page done! :-) Click the image for credits.

The weather is changing here and already the maples are turning golden. I shall have to try my best not to repeat myself with the pictures I take this autumn.

I did say 'try'.....

Vintage LO's - so special

I would not say they are my absolute favourite LO's to do - I enjoy variety - but they really are special. Of course I'm very fortunate to have a wonderful collection of old pictures to work from. Anyone who has been following along this blog will know that by now!

I recently made these two LO's with a new Page Set (and Add Ons) by Rina Kroes. I'm really pleased with how they have turned out and I know already that I will be making more pages with this collection for sure. It suits my pictures and my idea of vintage feminine perfectly!

Here is a look at the Page Set but take a look HERE at the rest of the Collection you can also hop on over to Rina's blog for previews, more LO's and a QP freebie

I turned my LO (second one featured here) into a gift for you.

Download the freebie HERE

Oh and Rina is the Designer of The Month at Scrapbook-Elements for this month (starting this Wednesday 14th. (actually this will be from the 21st, so you still have time to sign up for the newsletter!)) ) Here is a look at her free gift. Sign up now for the SBE newsletter if you'd like this beauty. It coordinates with Rina's Serenity Collection

Yearbook August 2011

Looks like I'm going to have another 4 or 5 pages for August. You know I was thinking I'm almost doing a weekly page anyway...maybe I'll go back to the 365 project for next year LOL.

I have one done so far August Page 1 I'm not sure I like the light bg though, I think I'm going to recolour that one before it gets to the printing stage.

and then Scrapbook-Elements is have a Guest CT Call....

Have a good weekend folks. I hope the weather lasts for the entire long weekend. If not, it is bound to be a beautiful day on the first day of school....isn't that how it is supposed to work ;-)
